My Brothers and Sisters in Faith,
May the Lord bless you and keep you; may his eyes shine upon you. The month of September has been a difficult one for all of us, especially the end of this month as we celebrated the lives of Carol Lytle and Jim Jeffryes. Though we rejoice that our loved ones are free of pain and suffering, it does not stop the fact that we miss their presence among us. So, I offer this prayer for all of us: I pray that the lord God surround you and fill you with his light and love, surrounding you and lifting your weary spirits so that you may find peace. In Jesus’ name I pray Amen.
The month of October is already upon us and there is much going on here at the church. On Sunday, we celebrated World Communion Sunday. October 15 is Laity Sunday. We also have Trick, Treat, and Eat coming up. On October 24 at 6:30 p.m. our Economic Justice Team is welcoming a special guest, Lauren Karch of Miami County Solid Waste Management, to help us learn a lot more about efforts to protect God’s planet through effective recycling methods. This event is open to everyone, so please come yourself and bring a friend.
In closing, my brothers and sisters, I just would like to remind everyone that the more the church is in the community, the more of the community we can get into our church.
Blessings and Prayers,
