This Week November 7, 2017

Dear Folks,

Our thoughts, prayers, and our hopes for action go out to Sutherland Spring, Texas, and anywhere violence is a reality.  Lord, have mercy.

Tomorrow is our next "LEO" (Let's Eat Out).  We will meet at 6:30 at Bull and Barley 350 Bridgeport Avenue.  The burgers are great!

This coming Sunday, November 12, is the Twenty-Third Sunday after Pentecost.  The scripture is Amos 5:18-24.  The sermon is "Everflowing".  We will be celebrating the baptisms of Lea Boroski and Maya Boyd.

Also this Sunday, we will be taking an offering for Master’s Table. Master's Table’s goal is to help the less fortunate members of our community and includes veterans, elderly, unemployed, underemployed, poor, migrants and homeless – women, men and children. Master’s Table feeds the hungry by providing nourishment and clothing.  A basket will be available in the alcove for your offering.

Thank you to everyone who returned their Faith Promise/Pledge Cards.  If you have not yet returned yours, please do so.  Your support is vital and appreciated in keeping the conversation going.

The Pumpkin & Holly Fair is quickly approaching, November 17th & 18th. We need your help to make this event a success. Please contact the co-chairs: Terri Johnston, Jaqui Olivo, Judy Tucker, or Justine Connery if you would like to contribute and/or help in anyway.

Justine Connery, wrangler of the pecans and cheese, needs help slicing cheese and packaging the pecans.  If you can, please help out on Wednesday, November 15 at  6:30 P.M.  She especially needs some strong folks to handle the cheese. Thanks!

Be sure to mark you calendar for the Shelton Clergy Association Interfaith Thanksgiving service on Tuesday, November 21, 7 P.M. at the Church of the Good Shepherd, Episcopal, 182 Coram Avenue.  The offering will go to Spooner House.  The imperishable food gathering will go to the Valley Food Bank. Pumpkin dessert are requested for the fellowship time following the service.

Let us pray.  O God, we know that the power of prayer is strong.  But, please inspire us to never us it as a substitute for action, if action is possible. Amen.

In Christ's love,
Rev. Lucille
