The Other Side of the Mountain
This has been an exciting, stressful, exhilarating, frustrating, and wonderful year. From the time in January when I found out I was invited to apply for ordination, to the magnificent evening of October 25 when my long journey toward ordination came to an end, 2013 has been an adventure!
Operation Christmas Child Shoe Boxes
are due back to the church on
Sunday, November 17th
so we may bless them before we send
them out into the world!
Forms with gift ideas for boxes & labels are available in the church
office or on the website www.samaritanspurse.org/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/
The eight beatitudes found in the beginning of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount in the 5,6 & 7 chapters of Matthew represent a process that listeners (Christians) must go through in order to become useful disciples for Jesus. The beatitudes are a process of transformation or changing one’s allegiance from our family, work, possessions, friends to God. The result of this transformation is having HEALTHY and functional relationships with other people and the things of this world.
Thank you. Thank you for your time. Thank you for your effort. Thank you for your support. Thank you for being you. Over this last month, we have sold over $17,000 in pumpkins! This means we now have $6,000 to help offset the cost of the junior high and high school mission trips. Each and every one of you who bought pumpkins, worked the shifts, and helped unload the 45,550 pounds of pumpkins has enabled this to happen. Our church is truly amazing!
