Worship at Home & In Person 10/4
Greetings to all! October is here and we're turning a leaf... October 4 will be the first time we are inviting a limited congregation to worship in-person with us at 9am since mid March. Please see the newsletter or the website for more. We ask you to register so we can keep count to help ensure social distancing. Also on Sunday the 4th, we will hold a Blessing of the Pets at 10am, both in-person (outdoors) and on facebook live. Bring a food shelf item if you can. At 1pm a group will meet in the parking lot to go clean up our section of Highway 246 south of town. Anyone is welcome to come help. Wear appropriate clothing/gloves/shoes. A high-vis vest will be provided. We still need to fill more slots to deliver meals for Meals on Wheels Oct 11-24. See the sign up sheet. This Sunday is the 18th 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 4 on our website as well as the recording of the service. The music is printed in the back. This Sunday is a communion Sunday. If you are worshiping at home, you may participate by having juice or wine and crackers or bread ready for that part of the service.

About worship Sunday 10/4: In today’s gospel reading, Jesus tells a vineyard parable, which serves as an image of Israel, the prophets’ mission, and Christ’s death. For Christians, the vineyard also speaks of God’s love poured out in the blood of Christ, given to us for the forgiveness of sin. Grafted onto Christ the vine at baptism, we are nourished with wine and bread so that we may share Christ’s sufferings and know the power of his resurrection.
