Worship - October 1, 2017 - World Communion Sunday - Sermon: “Asking God to be God” Rev. Kim Rodrigue

This Sunday is World Communion Sunday, come join us as we see communion bread from the different parts of the world.

THE PUMPKINS WILL ARRIVE @ 12:30PM this Sunday, October 1. If you have not signed up to help unload PLEASE do so or just show up. You can also volunteer for a week day shift by going to http://www.signupgenius.com/go/805084dafad2eaa8-sell4.


One of my commitments in my weekly work schedule is to have some set hours at a place outside the church building. Sometimes people are more comfortable talking with a pastor outside of the walls of a church. It may be a time for you to drop by or to bring a friend to visit. You don't have to have a particular need to stop by, but it is fine if you do.  It’s a time for conversation on anything from personal matters to church concerns to world peace – or anything else.

It is also a good way for me to meet people who aren't already in the church, but who may have interest in issues of spirituality and meaning. I will be your face in the community when I do this. You can join me for coffee Tuesday mornings or drinks this Thursday evening.

Pastor Kim’s coffee & beer hours:

  • Tuesday, October 3rd, 7 -9am                   Rue De La Course (S. Carrollton & Oak St.)
  • Wednesday, October 4th,  5-7pm              Oak (8118 Oak Street)

I will be at the church on Wednesday afternoons from 2-4 for anyone who wants to drop by. I'm glad to meet with you at another time, either at the church or someone else. Just call 504-866-7409 or email me at kim@fpcno.org to set up a time.
