CHLC family and friends,
This coming Sunday, October 17, is the 21st
Sunday after Pentecost. All of our scripture
this week have to do with servanthood - to be
greatest of all one must be servant of all.
Jesus modeled this in his life and his death
on the cross. This is a gift that brings life
out of death, joy out of sorrow and restoration
out of destruction.
CHLC Centennial Celebrate was a phenomenal success
last Saturday evening, and I want to once again
share my thanks with everyone who helped to
make it so. Many hands pitched in together to
set up tents, staff the sales tents, empty trash
bins, take down and clean up afterward. We also
had a wonderful turnout, which was a combination
of congregation members, neighbors, friends,
entertainment groups and their followers. The
general consensus is that we do this annually!!
Now we turn our attention to our worship service
on Reformation Day, October 31 at 10:00 a.m.
I look forward to sharing the day with our Bishop,
Suzanne Dillahunt as we give thanks for our
heritage and ask for God's guidance into our
future. There will be displays in the narthex/lobby
over the next few weeks of historical items
from our past, and after the service on Oct.
31 we will have a reception in the first floor
education wing with light refreshments. Please
plan to join us!
are collecting Thanksgiving Bags right now,
and the list of items is in the bulletin and
on the narthex bulletin board. This concludes
on November 14. We are also collecting monetary
offerings for LSS CHOICES through October 31.
Watch the television special on WBNS 10 TV on
October 21 about this valuable outreach in our
are starting to prepare for our congregational
meeting on November 21 at 11:00 a.m. This meeting
will be hybrid - this means that you can stay
after the worship service and attend in person,
or you can log in to the Zoom link that will
be shared in the weeks leading up to the meeting
and join virtually. In addition to approving
the 2022 budget and council membership slate,
we will also be asked to approve purchase and
installation of a new audio-visual system which
will improve our video and streaming capabilities
as well as improve the audio quality in our
sanctuary. We will share more information about
the system and the cost in the weeks to come.
