Reformation and All Saints Feast & Fellowship
After missing last year, we plan to again hold our annual Reformation and All Saints Feast and Fellowship dinner on Sunday, October 31. We will begin at 12:30 PM, to allow time for those who need to prepare food and change clothes at home after the Sunday service to be able to do so, as oven/refrig. space at the church is limited. Join us if you can, there is always plenty of favorite family recipes that show up. Check the sign-up sheet in the Fellowship Hall to ensure a well-rounded menu!
Operation Christmas Child Boxes
If you would like to fill a shoebox for a child in a far-off place, you can start shopping or saving up items now. Boxes are available on the table in the Fellowship Hall, or use your one shoe-sized box. The collection deadline to return boxes to Living Word is Wednesday, November 17. You can deliver diretly to Lake City Foursquare Church in Moses Lake until Sunday Nov. 21 -- schedule as posted, or contact Debbie for collection hours at Lake City during the week of Nov. 15 - 21. There is a "Build a box online" option again this year -- these boxes will be sent into "restricted" countries where other shoeboxes are not allowed in (Barbie dolls aren't allowed in Muslim areas, for instance).
Update on Sanctuary Chairs
Fabric has been ordered to recover the oldest of our sanctuary chairs. This is not a difficult job but takes a little time and some teamwork. If you can run a screwdriver, staple gun, and/or scissors, then this might be a job you are qualified for! Reply to this email if you might have a few free days in November/December, and we'll let you know when the fabric has arrived! --which should be in mid-November, we are told.
This is not a Martin Luther quote, but a good thought just the same:
"Life with God is not immunity from difficulties, but peace in difficulties." [-- often credited to C.S. Lewis, but not found in his published writings.]
