Greetings, CHLC family and friends,

Happy Halloween ... and Happy Reformation Day!!!

This coming Sunday, November 3, is All Saints' Sunday - we will remember and pray for all of the saints of the church - those who are officially canonized by the church through the years, those of our family and friends who we have lost, and those from our congregation who died within the last year - Delores Sanders, Mary Dierksen and Marcus Brainerd. If you have names to add to that list from your own circle, please email me or bring them with you to worship Sunday.
We also pray for the gathering of Saints who are still striving to be faithful disciples in our earthly lives today and every day. A song by Lutheran musician Jay Beech says, "We are the church, the body of our Lord. We are all God's children, we have been restored!" Those are true words and important as we consider our own callings to live out our faith in our daily lives.

Remember that before you go to bed on Saturday night - Turn back those clocks!!! We "fall back" this weekend, so get that extra hour's sleep!!

As we prepare for our church leadership in the next year and following, we are still looking for three people who will be willing to serve on church council for a three-year term. Congregation president Kevin Kelley will share this invitation with us Sunday during announcements, and will be available to answer questions you may have.

I will see you in worship, church!!!

Pastor
