Greetings to all! Our first Sunday with a limited congregation worshiping in person was as successful as we could have hoped. It was great to see faces again in the pews! If you are interested in in-person worship please register so we can keep count to help ensure social distancing. Feel free to see the newsletter or the website for more information. Families with children are welcome to join a separate facebook live event for Family Worship at 10am. Sunday School families can see the correspondence from Ms. Julie for the details. Families (or really, anyone!) are invited to meet at Caron County Park on Sunday 10/11 at 1pm for a hike in the woods. The pavilion is available for us, so bring a bag lunch if you would like to come as early as 12:30 to eat. The physical address is 6816 170th street E, Faribault. Plan to spend an hour or two. Thank you to all those who participated in the blood drive on Friday as well as those delivering meals for Meals on Wheels these two weeks coming up. This Sunday is the 19th Sunday after Pentecost. Join us online (facebook live) at 9:00 am or in-person by pre-registering. You can find the bulletin for October 11 on our website as well as the recording of the service. The music is printed in the back.

In Jesus’ parable about a great banquet, those invited do not come, so the invitation is extended to others. In our liturgy God spreads a table before us. Even amid anxiety and hardship we rejoice in the peace of God which surpasses all understanding. With great joy we feast at the table of the Lord, and we go forth to share the wonderful invitation with others hungering and thirsting for the abundant life of God.
