OUR TOP STORY
NOVEMBER IS HOMELESSNESS AWARENESS MONTH
On Sunday October 15, 2017 a beautiful young woman attended the 9:00 a.m. service for a visit. Later she attended Pastor Todd’s Bible study class and revealed that she had been sleeping in her car for well over a year. This homeless woman proceeded to tell the class that the issue of homelessness may be overwhelming but one thing that people can do is to be a friend to the homeless.
How does one welcome the homeless that we encounter on the streets and in our community? Hopefully the upcoming workshops on homelessness may help us find ways to make that connection.
There will be 2 presentations in November

SOMETHING NEW IN NOVEMBER
I am writing you to let you know about a test we are running in November. The first Sunday we will make the new configuration of the Altar/Choir area will be November 5th. If it is a success, it will stay. If not, we will go back to the way it has been by Dec 3rd.
I do this with some trepidation as my seminary professor once said, “You can preach heresy from the pulpit, but God help you if you move a candle.” The logic behind this is to move the instrumentalists out of the corner by the organ, to give the singers the ability to hear each other better, and use the large red carpeted area more worshipfully and effectively. During combined services and big days this arrangement would necessarily be a little different.
I welcome your questions and feedback. Remember November 5th will be the first Sunday. Take a look at the picture. This is roughly how it will appear in November.
