Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. – Colossians 3:12

7:30 AM Sunday Morning Service Moves to 8:00 AM on November 4th

We’ve heard that there are additional people who would come to our 7:30 service if it was just a little bit later so we’re going to do a 3 month experiment and move the starting time of our early Sunday service to 8:00. We will use the time when we are off day light saving time for our trial period, Nov. 4th-March 3rd.

We are very interested in your feedback and there will be a box in the entryway for your thoughts and ideas as we move through this trial period.  The service register records attendance at all of our services over the years so at the end of the trial period, we will compare attendance and see if the change has had any impact.  The Vestry will make a decision in February whether we will continue the early service at 8 AM or change it back to 7:30 AM.

Please join your vestry in prayer during this time of discernment and Mark your calendars for November 4th and on the day where we “fall backwards” as day light savings time ends; if the early service is the one you attend, we will look forward to seeing you at 8:00 AM rather than 7:30 AM for the Celebration of All Saints.

Christy’s Corner:

As I write this article, it’s the day after Black Friday and everywhere I look our culture is screaming, “Buy! Buy! Buy!” Don’t miss out on this incredible vacation or this smashing outfit. This amazing kitchen gadget will ensure your holiday entertaining is a huge success and effortless!

I look out at the mountains with newly fallen snow and I ponder the coming of Advent, the liturgical season that we will begin on December 2nd. Part of me wonders how we got to December so quickly. The other part wonders if there is any place in our culture that encourages us to wait expectantly and hopefully for anything, let alone for the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ into our world. It strikes me that we may not be able to get this kind of support from our culture, and yet in our part of the world nature beckons us into a time of waiting and lying fallow, preparing for what is to come. Perhaps this year we can intentionally listen more to nature! What might that look like?
