WELCOME: Introduction of your New Pastor

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth;

And in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

born of the Virgin Mary,suffered under Pontius Pilate,was crucified, dead, and buried;*

the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven,

and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;

from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,the holy catholic** church,the communion of saints,the forgiveness of sins,the resurrection of the body,and the life everlasting. Amen.

-We also want to invite everyone to stay for a few minutes after church on Sunday, October 15th to recognize the great work BRANDY has done in our children’s ministry … thanks to all of you who have signed up to love and teach our kids on Sunday mornings … we still need some help this fall!

-Women looking to grow in their faith should think about attending the last Walk to Emmaus this year …this 3 days in NOVEMBER could change your life! AND your new Pastor is the SPIRITUAL DIRECTOR of this Walk so you’ll get to know her really well

-The CREW will be on temporary hiatus in October while Brenda Williams is in San Angelo with her mother … it will be back in a BIG WAY soon! This also means the Garage Sale is postponed

-Pot Luck is the 5th Sunday of October so let’s all BE TOGETHER as we prepare for change

-Also, Halloween is around the cornet so start bringing your CANDY … Pastor Cathy WILL be here that night to meet you and meet our neighbors … be sure you introduce her to everyone!

-In order to help Pastor Cathy get off to a FAST start she wants to meet as MANY people as QUICKLY as possible so won’t you please host a casual get-together for PIE WITH THE PASTOR.  Debbie has already asked a few people to host groups of 15 up to 30 (you can borrow chairs from the church if you need to!) but if YOU want to pick a night, please let STACY PLASEK know, we will email you Stacy’s info so you can contact her directly. Hosts do nothing but provide paper plates and tea or coffee and 2-3 people in each group will bring a pie.

-Ministry Celebration for Brandy and Debbie next Sunday after church, very informal!
