We as a group continue to provide both spiritual and personal help to whomever comes to us. As we look around our congregation each Sunday, we are constantly reminded of all the saints who have gone before us. We can only hope to be faithful stewards as they were. We are always open to ideas and suggestions from the congregation on how to serve others.
Our most recent Koffee Klatch was a successful endeavor. We are planning another chance to fellowship sometime in late October or November.
We visit, talk with and send birthday, get well and holiday cards to our shut-ins, sick, hospitalized and concerned church members. The Deacons are planning a Christmas caroling event in December (TBA) for our shut-ins. We hope you can join us!
We are blessed to have an anonymous benefactor taking on the transportation cost for Barry Mull to continue to worship with us once a month.
With Christmas rapidly approaching, we will be sponsoring once again twenty (20) name tags on the Angel Tree. This will begin in November and have only about 2 weeks between picking a child’s name and getting the gift back to the Church unwrapped. More information will follow later in the weekly Church Bulletins.
If you have any ideas about how we can make our Deacon ministry more meaningful, please talk to one of your deacons: Jon Soles, Judy Soles, Clyde Bittner, Sharon Deluzio, Pat Dirling, Mariann Frey, Dorothy Huffman, Joann Kregecz, Tom Florey, Marcia Aducci, Cathy Highlands and Kathryn Peters.
In closing and in preparation of the Holy Season, have you ever wondered, “Does God Care?” Through the small face of a stable-born baby, He says “Yes.” Yes, your sins are forgiven. Yes, your name is written in heaven. Yes, death has been defeated; and yes, God has entered our world. Immanuel, God is with us!
