        This Sunday, October 23, Rev. Ivy Merrill will be leading our 10:00 a.m. Worship Service.  Her meditation is entitled “What’s So Great About Humility.” As a special music offering, the Handbell Choir will be playing.  

       Rev. Ivy will  also be leading worship next Sunday, October 30th.  We will be having our monthly Potluck Luncheon following that service.  All are welcome to the Potluck regardless of whether one has time to prepare any food.  There is always plenty!

        A reminder that throughout the month of October, we will be collecting our United Church of Christ “Neighbors In Need” offering for 2016.  “Neighbors In Need” serves various missions through our country.  Some of the money given in the past went to help folks in Vermont after Hurricane Irene.  Special envelopes were included in our recent Newsletter.  Donations may be brought to church or mailed to Christ’s Church, P. O. Box 694, Saxtons River, 05154. 

         Hope all are having an opportunity to frequent the Blue Door Community Soup Suppers being held in the Church dining room held each Wednesday.  They go from 5:30 until 6:30 p.m. and offer a wonderful chance to not only enjoy some delicious soup but visit with friends and neighbors. 

          Women’s Fellowship is busy preparing for its 60th Christmas Stocking Bazaar on Saturday, November 12th.  Many area folks will fondly remember Rhoena Longley - faithful member of Christ’s Church and beloved teacher at the Saxtons River Elementary school.  November 12th is Rhoena’s birthdate.  We miss her and know she would have been excited to celebrate on this date.

          Enjoy the last beauty of God’s beautiful gift of Autumn. 

In the Spirit,

    It’s coming!  Women’s Fellowship Apple Pie Preparation  -

    this Thursday, October 6th at 9:00 a.m.

    followed by a light luncheon

    Carol Perley reports:

    “Think we have 6 people to peel (and a few possibles) and 4-5 to work in the kitchen.  Of course, more are always welcome!!!  And, I know MJ has some people signed up to make  pie crusts.  Should be a fun and productive morning!” 

    So looking forward to seeing everyone coming to “work” and have some fun.  Louise Luring will be coming to get our picture – as she is writing up an article – to help us publicize our 60th Bazaar.  Perhaps all would like to bring their favorite aprons (?).  And I believe we have a couple of “special” crust rolling guests” joining us. 

    Do remember that there will be special coupons for all the workers….$7.00 for the pie crust makers and $5.00 coupons for all other kitchen and “peeler” workers.  These can be redeemed at our next outing or event (excluding the Bazaar) that involves a cost. 

    Until Thursday…
