FOR PASTORAL CARE AFTER OFFICE HOURS, you can reach Fr. Dale at 213-6071. Fr. Dale’s e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org . Fr. Dale will be taking Monday as his day off. To schedule an appointment with Fr. Dale, call the parish office, 233-6320.
TODAY at 9:10 the Adult Forum Fr. Dale will continue his series of presentations on the Acts of the Apostles. There are very many parallels between the witness of the Christian Church in a pluralistic culture, and today’s church also in a pluralistic world. Acts speaks to us very strongly about being faithful in such a world. Everyone is welcome. Bring your Bibles!
THE ALTAR FLOWERS are given to today to the glory of God by Duffy Walters for Toby Melts and Mac Dickinson.
THE SANCTUARY LIGHT is lit today to the glory of God by Sheri and David Welch in celebration of their anniversary.
2009 FINANCIAL STATEMENTS are available on the table in the Canterbury Room.
On Dec. 20 the Senior Warden, Ed Parsons presented the Christmas gift from the Parish to me at the 8:00 Eucharist. I didn’t see it, though, because Ed immediately took it back and said the sermon wasn’t that good. Then at the 10:30 service Brian Maves, Parish Warden presented it again and said the sermon was much better. Thank God for the Children’s pageant!
I am so grateful to you all for your amazing generosity. Thank y you for your kindness.
We are pleased to report our Christmas Attendance was up from last year. We had 281 this year in comparison to 270 last year. Special thanks to the Evangelism Commission which sent out special invitations to young people and folks we hadn’t seen in awhile.
“HELP! IF YOU HAVE A FEW MINUTES, could you assist the Altar Guild take down the decorations? Just look for an AG person after the 10:30 service today, and you will be directed to a tree, a crèche, a wreath or some greenery. Any help would be greatly appreciated!”
