Together in Faith: Then Peter came and said to him, “Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how often should I forgive? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy-seven times.” Matthew 18:21-22
Seventy-seven times is a lot of forgiveness. Sometimes, just one time is a lot of forgiveness too! Is there one big forgiveness hurdle we can’t seem to get over? Perhaps this Sunday would be a good time to lay that particular burden to rest.
Bishop's Committee Parishioner Liaison: Every week there will be an assigned member of the Bishop's Committee to serve as a Parishioner Liaison. We encourage parishioners to seek out this assigned member whenever there is a suggestion, question or concern. The liaisons will bring all comments to the monthly meeting of the Bishop's Committee to be addressed as appropriate. This week’s Parishioner Liaison is Charles Vaughn.
SPECIAL REQUEST: Bring your cell phones and tablets to church with you on Sunday, September 24, 2017 at 10 am. Yes, you read that correctly: Bring your phones and tablets to church! Something special to happen that day! Project for the homeless: WE NEED LOTS AND LOTS OF PLASTIC GROCERY BAGS PLEASE! (Stores refuse to donate them). Members of our Cursillo group are crocheting mats for the homeless, using plastic shopping bags. We need bags and will have a box for that purpose in the Narthex. Anyone interested in assisting the group in the making of the mats may contact Monica Larsen at 480-621-8158 or email@example.com.
Devine Diners: Hello current and hopefully potential Devine Diners. It is almost time to reassign the smaller groups. So...If you would like to become a Devine Diner for the fall, please contact: Carolyn Morgan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 817-266-8016. Remember we meet about once a month at someone's home, a restaurant or wherever the host selects. Please consider joining us. If you are a current Devine Diner and unfortunately cannot continue with us for any reason, please advise Carolyn and she will remove you from the fall participants. Hoping to have several new people sign up and enjoy the fun and fellowship.
