November 2017

Well, most of you have probably started the furnace and unpacked heavy winter clothes by now...it is that time of the year! November is a busy month for the church and in your lives, as well.

It begins on November 5th when we come to All Saints Sunday. We will, in some special way, remember those members of our congregation who have died during 2017. All Saints Sunday should be more than a time of sad remembrance, it should be a time to celebrate lives lived well and be glad for those loved ones' continued presence with us in the Communion of Saints.

There is also Veteran's Day. On November 10th the Perry-Lecompton Middle School will have their annual breakfast and program for veterans who live in the Perry-Lecompton School District. If you are a veteran, or know a veteran, you can get a registration form here at the church.

Of course, November wouldn't be November without Thanksgiving! I hope that you will take some time on that day to remember the blessings that you have. Each of us has many things to be thankful for. Of course, Louvae and I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. You are all in our prayers of thanks.

The Season of Advent begins this year on December 3rd, but it is not too early to begin your preparations for the joyous Advent and Christmas season now. Prepare not only in department stores, but in your heart, as well.

I hope you can be with us in church in November. You will find a warm place during a cold month of the year as you worship the Risen Lord.

Grace and Peace,

Pastor Jack
