Weekly Contact- October 22, 2015

Hello there,

Do you have your plaid ready to wear? This Sunday is the day.  We will be celebrating Celtic Heritage Sunday, and you will not want to miss it.  Bagpiper, Bill Spivey, will be opening and closing our worship.  At the first service, we will have Karen Pierce playing her hammer dulcimer, the Celtic harp group “Young at Harp,” and the Chancel Choir has prepared some Celtic pieces.  Other musicians that will be helping out will be John Heim on guitar, Scott Schaub on bass, Emily Schaub on penny whistle and Greg Kanz on percussion.  Our hymns will all be Scottish, Irish or Welsh tunes, and our liturgy will be from the Scottish ecumenical community of Iona Abbey.  With all this rousing music, I will still try to do a little preaching.  My text will be Mark 10:46-52, and my sermon title is “But Now I See.”

Sunday evening is our annual Harvest Dinner, starting at 5:00. Senior high and middle school youth invite all our senior citizens to a delicious sit-down dinner.  If you are interested in attending, call the church office.  If you need a ride, we can make arrangements, and meals can be delivered to shut-ins.

Don’t forget to pick up a pack of children’s socks for Socktober. We need them this Sunday.

Finally, the Presbyterian Women are having a special speaker on Saturday morning, starting with refreshments at 9:30. Kathy Good from the Family Caregivers Center of Mercy Medical Center will present a program on Alzheimer’s.  Everyone is invited.

Stay in One Peace,
