The next few weeks of worship will be special. We will be celebrating and giving thanks to God for a variety of people. As we do this, I am inviting you to be part of this time of thanks and praise.
This Sunday we will celebrate with our confirmation students who affirmed their baptism on October 4. These nine youth have been a joy to teach these past few years and I look forward to all God has in store for them. Please be praying for them in the days, months, and years to come. And join us as we celebrate this important faith milestone.
On October 25, we will be celebrating Reformation Sunday, a day when we remember the work and ministry of Martin Luther and many other reformers. We are a church that is constantly called to see the ways God is working in this world. And when we listen to God’s voice, we will be awakened to new ways of being church. No more, “That’s how we’ve always done it!” Celebrate with us the ways the church has been renewed and let us give thanks for Luther’s vision to bring the church to a new way of being.
On November 1, we will remember the many Saints who have touched our lives on All Saints’ Day. This is a time to reflect and remember, but also to give thanks for the ways these people blessed our lives and our faith. I am hopeful that we will be able to share this day with all the joy and tears that come with it. And let us especially remember two of the Saints who shared their faith with us at Peace: Gary Ewers and June McGloin.
Our worship is enriched as we participate together in worshipping God. So, I hope you will consider being part of what we’re doing in worship over the next few weeks. I’m looking for videos of the Creed for Reformation Sunday. I’m looking for pictures and names of Saints. Check out the details below and please consider participating in these worships! See you on Sunday!
