Greetings, CHLC family and friends!
coming Sunday, November 19, is the 24th Sunday
after Pentecost. This is the next-to-last Sunday
of the church calendar, as November 26 will
be observed as Christ The King Sunday. It may
be hard to believe, but December 3 is almost
here, and with that comes the beginning of Advent!
the worship this Sunday, our WELCA ladies will
be bringing forward their Thankofferings to
present to the altar with prayer.
After the service, we will have a brief meeting
to consider and vote on the 2018 Operating Budget.
Then after the meeting, we will recess up to
the parish hall for our annual Harvest Dinner.
Bring a dish to share and enjoy some fellowship
with your Christian family and friends.
Wednesday, November 22, is Thanksgiving Eve,
and we will have our combined worship service
at North Community Lutheran Church on Morse
Rd, just east of High street. Worship will be
at 7:30 and will feature a combined choir from
all three congregations - North Community, Gethsemane
and us. I will be preaching, and the other pastors
will preside over communion. Be sure to ake
time to stay for pie afterward as well!!
of conflicts with more than one of our regulars,
our Men's Bible Study was postponed from last
Saturday to this Saturday. Join us at Panera
Bread at 9:00 for this time of conversation
family and I appreciate everyone's prayers during
this difficult time. My oldest nephew, Chris
Adams, died suddenly and unexpectedly on Monday.
His mother, my sister, Brinda Adams, is an active
member of Clinton Heights. Please continue to
keep her and all of Chris' family and friends
in your prayers as we continue to grieve his
passing. We will have a memorial service for
Chris on Saturday December 2, visitation from
10:30 to noon with the service at 12:00.
will see you in worship!
