CHLC family and friends,
Happy Halloween ... and Happy Reformation Day!!!
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
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!!
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.
will see you in worship, church!!!
