"Whatever your heart clings to and confides in, that is really your God." Martin Luther

Today, October 31, 2017, marks the 500 year anniversary of the date that, according to legend, a monk named Martin Luther defiantly nailed his Ninety-Five Theses to the door of the Wittenberg Castle Church and, in the process, gave birth to the Reformation and Protestantism. We celebrated Reformation Sunday in worship this past week, and today we are sharing some interesting quotes, articles and thoughts.

Special Musical Worship Service led by Jeff Moles

Dear Church,

I’m really excited about worship this week! My dear friend Jeff Moles will be in town and has offered to share his musical gifts with the congregation. I’ve worked with quite a number of music directors, organists, and pianists over the years, and can say without exception that no one did a better job than Jeff at helping the congregation to worship through music. We are blessed that he is sharing that gift with us on Sunday.

Sunday Services Cancelled

We have decided to cancel this weekend's activities, including Sunday worship, Sunday School, and the Pumpkin Patch. This decision is based on the timing of the storm and the reality of the problems with the city infrastructure in handling this weather.

Let's keep one another, and the rest of the city and Gulf Coast, in our corporate prayers.    

Grace and peace,
Pastor Kim

World Communion Sunday

Today is World Communion Sunday. We had a wonderful service this morning with breads from, Africa, Switzerland, France, the Mediterranean, Central America, and our usual Jewish Challah bread. The table was set with beautiful textiles from places near and far.

It is good to be reminded that the body of Christ is found in every corner of the world.  This is certainly a feast that the Lord has prepared for us. Taste and see that the Lord is Good!

Pumpkins Delayed until Monday 5pm

Our pumpkin truck is on the road. It should be here late tonight. We will unload tomorrow (MONDAY) at 5pm. We need to get these orange beauties off the hot humid truck ASAP so we cannot wait for perfect conditions. Sorry to ask everyone to come out on a work/school night but it is what it is. We have seen the weather forcast, and hope that there is no rain!  

If you can't come, please help us network and share our plea with someone else who might be abe to help. Thank you!
