Message from Pastor Diane: Expect a Letter Soon, HARVEST FESTIVAL this Sunday, Upcoming Book Discussions

Greetings on this beautiful fall day!
As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God. (Colossians 3:12-16)
This Sunday, we begin our focus on all that God has given us, and how we can share in our giving with our Stewardship. Look for a letter from Stewardship & Finance arriving soon, and each Sunday, a church member will share what APC means to them in a Stewardship Reflection during worship. Our Stewardship Sunday will be November 8.
Next SUNDAY, OCTOBER 18, plan to gather outside from 5-6 PM for a HARVEST FESTIVAL. Enjoy campfire songs, a firepit, stories, and smore-making. Please bring along food items for the Food Pantry, a camp chair or blanket, and your mask!
Our next book will be Let Justice Roll Down, by John Perkins. Our discussion will be held on Tuesday, 10/20, at 7 p.m.. You can participate either from the Mill Creek Room or via zoom.
In November, we will be reading and discussing Searching for Sunday, by Rachel Held Evans. Date TBD.
With prayers for hope and health,
Pastor Diane
Transitional Pastor
