17th Sunday after Pentecost

A painting of a scene at night with 11 swirly stars and a bright yellow crescent moon. In the background there are hills, in the middle ground there is a moonlit town with a church that has an elongated steeple, and in the foreground there is the dark green silhouette of a cypress tree.

…what woman having ten silver coins, if she loses one of them does not light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully…Luke 15:8

In the gospel reading for Sunday, Jesus tells the Pharisees a couple little parables about things that are lost: a sheep and a coin. We shall think together on Sunday about being lost (a common human experience) and being found (sometimes an experience of grace).

Singers of the choir, and those who would like to sing this year, Kathryn Welter invites you to breakfast at 8:15 am in the fellowship hall. rsvp kathryn.welter@bestavros.net.

It’s rally day and I hope that you will all come to church to support the children, teachers and their parents as they begin a new year of Sunday school. Here’s a note from Kim Canning, our education coordinator:

This Sunday is our big Sunday school kick-off event when we welcome students in the classroom for another year of fun, fellowship, and Christian education with old friends and new!  Our children will start by spending time with fellow students and their teachers in the classroom briefly before joining additional members of the congregation for an intergenerational activity.  The experience of mingling with others while on a quest for similarities among us will provide everyone an opportunity to get to know one another better.  I look forward to a fun time together.  -Kim

Rejoicing Spirits at 4 pm. All are welcome to the service and to the potluck supper that follows.
