Happy birthday to us! This Sunday marks the fourth anniversary of the installation of our first vestry and of David as our rector. So grab a piece of birthday cake after the service and join us in giving thanks to God for all he has done at Restoration in the last four years.
Welcome to our new Vestry members: Isaiah Brooms, Carolyn Weimer, and Ramsey Wilson will join the Vestry in January. Thanks to those who stood for the election and to all who voted. Please pray for all our Vestry members as they lead our church.
Special offering for the Philippines: Today we’re collecting a special offering for the Typhoon Haiyan relief work of the Anglican Relief and Development Fund.

Checks should be made out to Restoration Anglican Church, with “ARDF” in the memo line. To learn more about ARDF’s work, go to anglicanaid.net.
