Announcements

OUR FOOD PANTRY will be collecting cans or boxes of SOUP throughout September.  Please bring your cans or boxes of soup and place them at the wooden cross in the narthex. Beginning in October and the first part of November, we will be collecting Thanksgiving foods such as canned yams, chicken gravy (bottled or box), green beans.

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD, our “Shoebox Ministry” has started.  Shoeboxes and the supply list are located on the table in the narthex (lobby).  Please take one or more shoeboxes to fill and bring them back to the table when finished.  For more information, please speak with Lisa Davis, our Coordinator for the project!  We will also be having special Sundays in September and October so that you may bring in some of the supplies needed to fill the shoeboxes.

 

THIS SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 24TH, we are collecting items for the shoebox ministry.  We are collecting toys that children will immediately embrace such as dolls, toy trucks, stuffed animals, kazoos, harmonicas, yo-yoys, jump robes, balls, toys that light up and make noise (with extra batteries, etc. Please do not include used or damaged items; war-related items such as toy guns, knives or military figures; chocolate or food; out of date candy, liquids or lotions; medications or glass containers; aerosol cans.  If you forgot today, you may bring them next Sunday.

 

ANGELS ARE CALLING!  The display for this year’s Storytelling Event will be made up of angels.  We are requesting and inviting you to share your angels with us for the day.  You may bring them ahead of time and let someone else put them on the display or you may bring them on Friday, September 29th during the day and place them yourself.  Please identify your angels in some way so that they are not confused with someone else’s angels. 

 

OUR OLD HYMNALS have been removed from the pews since we no longer use hymnals in our worship.  If you would like to have a few, please take them.  If you or a loved one gave one of these hymnals, you may sort through them to find that special hymnal.

SCRIPTURE THOUGHTS

 

These texts let us struggle with what to do when things don’t turn out as we had expected—especially when life that comes from God doesn’t fit our expectations. Hearing unhelpful complaints, we wrestle to find better ways of lamenting and bringing our grievances before God.  Today’s texts are all about expectations. For many people this time of year is full of them: teachers are setting expectations for behavior in the classroom; athletes are beginning to discover what they might expect from their seasons; stewardship committees are talking about what to expect in this year’s campaign; parents are walking the balance between high expectations for their kids and too much pressure on everyone. For many, expectations become a quietly borne burden, a constant fear that they will disappoint. But for others unemployment or illness has brought all of that to a frightening halt. For yet others no one has asked for their gifts, and they begin to despair that they have anything to offer.
