Thanksgiving Eve Service and Pie Fellowship - Wednesday, November 26, 7:00 pm
The traditional Thanksgiving Eve Service and Pie Fellowship begins at 7:00 pm on November 26, the Wednesday night before
Thanksgiving. The Cherub and Youth Choirs will provide music leadership. A sharing of homemade pies at a fellowship get-
together after the service is sure to get the Thanksgiving holiday off to a
sweet start. The evening is a great time for the church
family to recount blessings and give thanks to God. Bake your favorite pie and
bring it to church on Thanksgiving Eve (you may
drop off the pie earlier in the day, or before attending the service). This is a
special time to worship and thank God for the
Stewardship Sunday - November 2
The Session has identified four challenging goals for our congregation, as we
money to support the church’s mission and ministry for 2015 and beyond:
We sense God’s calling to hire a part-time Associate Pastor to expand our ministry
in the areas of membership assimilation, discipleship and small groups; while
assisting with pastoral care and preaching.
We need to provide more resources to our expanding youth ministry programs and
the new Musikgarten program.
We hear the challenge to do more in mission, both locally and internationally.
Giving more resources to the Deacons will
enable our congregation to demonstrate more of God’s love in our community and world.
We all need to give more of our financial resources, because it will take a 12%
increase above what we gave in 2014, to
accomplish all of these dreams.
Stewardship Sunday is November 2, pledge cards may be found in the pew racks and
can be placed in the offering plate.
