Pastor's Weekly Update
What a memorable evening last Saturday was at our 1st annual Oktoberfest! We had over 115 people come and join us for this fundraiser for the Corporate Board. A thank you beyond all "thank you's" goes to Peter and Cheri, and Cheri's mom Phyllis! They cooked and cooked and cooked throughout this past week. It was delicious and it looks like we raised a little of $5000. Thank you to all that help put this together from decorating to setup and then clean-up. We are absolutely excited about next year's event.
Worship was encouraging and enlightening as we all communed with each other but more importantly God's Son, Jesus Christ! I love communion Sundays as we take some time to contemplate and thank God for paving the way of forgiveness.
It is Stewardship time and I wanted you to know that we will be mailing out Tuesday our Stewardship letter from Mike Heller, our Clerk of Session. In this letter we are asking everyone who calls this church home to prayerfully consider what financial gift they think God wants them to give to the life and work of Church By The Sea. I am praying for myself and all of you as we walk this journey together. I hope you have a wonderful week and I look forward to seeing you this Sunday in worship. Invite a friend to worship this Sunday. God bless!
In His Grip,
