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: A Is For Apple

This week in the older preschool class, the letter of the week was “A”. Teacher Sterling asked if they could visit Shepherd’s House to pick an apple. So this morning, I hosted them as they each got to pick the apple of their choice. It reminded me of a foundational story that my grandfather told me when I was little. He started off as a janitor at Lilly Seed Company as a young man and ended his career as the CEO of the same company. He loved gardening and as the story goes, one day when he was in his seventies and out planting an apple tree in his garden, his priest came by for a visit. He asked what grandad was doing. When he told him, the priest laughed and said, “What are you doing that for? You’ll never taste any of those apples!” I don’t think my grandfather was very impressed as he responded, “No, but my children and grand-children will!”
