MORE SEPTEMBER NEWS – September 20th, 2020

Posted on September 20, 2020


Hi again.  Just a few updates from our last letter.

We have been promising you virtual services – and we are now up and running as of today.

Rev. Marilyn, along with retired Minister Rev. Jill Rogers will be providing virtual worship and we hope you enjoy all we have to offer.  This is a project in the making – so please bare with us.

The services may be reached through our website – under “Virtual Services”.  You should see the date – in this case, September 20th, 2020, click and you will be able to watch from that page.

The link below will take you directly to the “You Tube” view of all services, again listed by date.

Simply click on the date you wish to see and Watch/Listen in the comfort of your own home.

If you have a friend or family member who does not have access to the virtual world, please take some time to share the service from your own device, be it a cell phone or an Ipad.  Or ask a family member if they could look this up and share it with you.    We hope to reach all of our congregation in some manner with a “Sunday Morning” service at any time.

If you are out and about, check out our “Harvest Wagon”    Thanks to Colleen Trott for her handiwork on the banner – it looks great.  It is our desire to remind people that we are still here, alive and part of the community even if we can’t be open.  The idea is to highlight our Thankfulness for all our good blessings.

If you have items from your garden – pumpkins, gourds, cornstalks – anything to continue decorating our wagon, please feel free to add them.  But we are also looking for any extra produce – fruits/vegetables from your garden, or canned goods, which will be donated to the Inn of the Good Shepherd as we get enough to share.  So, if you have anything to offer over the next few weeks, please add it to the wagon anytime.   We hope you will help make this a feature of our front yard.

Our Beef Dinner is set to go for Saturday, September 26th.  If you haven’t placed your order yet – you only have until tomorrow to do so.  Call 519-542-2084 and leave a message with your order.

We will also have Beef Pies ready on Monday, September 28th – Price is $4.00 per pie.

If you’d like to order, please call 519-542-2084 and leave a message with your name, telephone number and number of pies.   We will call you back with a curbside pick up time.

Lastly our UCW held an outside get together this week and a book review which was most enjoyable (Where the Crawdads Sing).  We are hoping to do so again, probably late October and the book we are reviewing is “The House By The Sea” by Santa Montefiore.  We wanted to give you plenty of time to read the book and be ready for a lively discussion, in some manner.  Watch for more information on date, etc.

As always, we thank you for your continued support.

If you have a chance to “surf the net”, I invite you to search out Susan Cohen Pearlman Film – called Tears – Be Kind Today.  This 3 min film has won the Oscar for the best animated movie – and we can all find a take away from this clip.
