A Brief Note From The Pastor:
I hope your October is off to a great start. I'm so incredibly thankful for you and the fact that God has made you a part of this young fellowship seeking to glorify our God and advance the common good - where we live, worship, work and play.
I want to let you know about 2 important upcoming events:
First, we will be having an "Instructed Liturgy" on Sunday, October 22 during our 10am service. Have questions about the meaning and background of our Sunday worship? This deeper-dive into our forms and traditions of worship will be a spark for several meaningful discussion times we are planning for the season of Advent.
Second, we will be holding a Vision Night with Q&A, on Thursday, November 2 at 6:30pm. Nursery will be provided and a supervised art project will be available for children 3-10. We can't wait to share what it will look like for us, having been planted in Sans Souci, to begin the next season of becoming "rooted."
ps. Here's a great resource I use through the week to complement the Sunday lectionary readings. Just click on the "Complementary" tab and you'll have daily readings that either reflect upon the former or anticipate the upcoming Sunday scripture readings.
PARENTS: No kids out front, please!
As you know, Old Buncombe Rd in front of the church is a high-traffic road. Please advise your children not to play in the front or to go around the front to get to the side yard. We will have a cone or flag up near the sidewalk as a visual aid to remind them. Until we've renovated and opened the other front entrance / exit nearest the green space, they will need to go around the back to get there.
WOMEN'S GATHERING - This Thursday at 6:30pm - Fellowship meal, discussion and prayer. Click here for more info and to RSVP!
MEN'S HOLY GRILL - Either Thursday, October 19 or 26th, at 7pm - TBD - We currently still need a host back yard fire pit or porch for this month! Reply to this email if you can host either the 19th or, as an alternate date, the 26th and we'll send out the confirmed date. VC will supply the food. We just need a host!
NOVEMBER NEWCOMER'S GATHERING - We haven't set a date for this yet, but there will definitely be one, keeping with our bi-monthly schedule. Stay tuned!
