There is much to read in this edition of The Courier. That is because there is much going on at Holy Spirit right now.
This month, two pages have been set aside to detail some, just some, of the outreach ministries where we have had an impact. These are primarily locally based efforts, but we have had an impact around the world with our companion congregation in Tanzania, and through our contributions of personal care kits, school kits, and quilts to Lutheran World Relief.
The children and youth ministry engages that generation with special times like the Lego Club, and the October outing to the corn maze.
October is the month we join together and make our pledges of support to this congregation for 2015. That happens when we process our pledge cards forward on Stewardship Sunday, October 5th.
And there is more. All of these good things have their start as we gather on Sunday morning for word and sacrament worship. This is our foundation, gathering as one community at the table of our Lord, receiving the means of grace, that we are called to share with the world.
There is a place for you to share your gifts and talents. But first, be part of that special time on Sunday morning. And be part of this community which extends the hand of grace here and throughout God’s creation.
