Sunday Announcements – November 17th, 2019
- Parking on Sunday mornings. This is a reminder to be kind to our neighbors on Sunday mornings by not parking your car on Quincy St. Park your car in the lot on 15th and walk or ride our shuttle. Thank you for helping us treat our neighbors well!
- Thanksgiving for 10 Good Years: On Sunday, Nov. 24, we will have the opportunity to give a financial gift in thanksgiving for all that God has done over the last 10 years and in anticipation for all that God will do in our next season as Good Things Grow Here.
The vestry has designated that this gift would go to our operating fund and be above and beyond what you were planning to give at the end of 2019. The vestry is so grateful for your generosity and for God’s faithfulness to our church.
There will be 2 options for your ‘Thanksgiving for 10 Good Years’ gift:
A. We will make special envelopes available on Nov. 17 and at the party on Nov. 22. On Sunday, Nov. 24 we will turn in those envelopes as part of the offering during our worship services.
B. There is a dropdown menu choice on CCB called, ‘Thanksgiving for 10 Good Years’.
- RestoWomen: Join us this Tuesday, November 19 at 7:30pm in the Fellowship Hall as we learn about and practice Lectio Divina (Latin for divine reading). Lectio Divina invites us into God’s presence to listen for his particular loving word to us at a particular moment in time.
