Together in Faith: “Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people that produces the fruits of the kingdom.” Matthew 21:43
In one of his harsher parables, Jesus indicts church leaders and members who fail to be faithful stewards of what they have been given. The parable invites us to reflect upon our own use of God’s gifts to us.
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 Judy Hossack.
Thanksgiving Donations: It's almost time for Turkey again! If you would like to donate toward the purchase of gift cards for Turkeys, Food Pantry volunteers will be accepting donations during coffee time. The gift cards will be given to those in need during food distribution on November 14th.
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.
