Don't forget this Sunday!!!
Launching Song of the Month This Week
I have been thinking that we need an infusion of new music for our
Sunday worship. So starting in November we will be having a new song of
the month. Each month, we will teach it and sing it for the first time
on the first Sunday of the month and then on each of the other Sundays
of that month we will use it somewhere in the service so that we all
learn it really well. After that it will go into the regular rotation of
songs and I will use it whenever it fits with the scriptures and theme
for the day. These songs will consist of newer songs we have never used,
songs that have been around for a while but we have never used, and
songs that we have done at one time or another but haven't used in a
Our first song, which we will teach on November
5, is Blessed Be Your Name. It was made popular by Matt Redman.
Hope you enjoy this new music adventure. Here is the link to November's
new song on Youtube so that you can become familiar with it before the
service on Sunday!:
Trunk or Treat a Success!
Trunk or Treat last Saturday was a huge success
thanks to Nancy Shively, the preschool director, the preschool teachers
and a number of people from the congregation. There were an estimated
200 people who attended, many of them new faces from the neighborhood
and beyond. There were hotdogs, nachos, and chips, a baked goods table
and games for the children. Deborah and Gene Cantwell had a tent
complete with a Halloween themed backdrop where attendees could have
their pictures taken. Later they could scan a business card Gene gave
them, find their child's picture and print it out as a keepsake. Here is
a small sampling of the pictures Gene took.
