Monday Musings (10/8/12)

Dear Church Family,

I apologize for getting this out a few days late this week. It has been a crazy few days with a lot going on. It is when I have days like these that I am ever more aware of my need for prayer. I need to be in contact with God for leading, strength, support, and so much more. How is your prayer life today? Have you talked to your Father? He is waiting for you. If you have not spoken to him yet today, take a moment now and do so. This email will still be here waiting when you are done. Otherwise have a blessed week and we will see you all on Sunday.

Along the Journey,
Pastor Jude

New Florist:
Our previous florist has gone out of business and so we have reached out to Tim’s Floral here in South Park to be our new florist. This past week was their first week for providing flowers for the altar and they looked wonderful. They continue to be $18 and if you wish to sign-up please fill in the flower chart at the sanctuary entrance or call Elaine Cadman in the church office. (412-653-6899)

Church Cook-Out & More Event:
On Sunday, October 21 at 5pm you are invited to join the church family at the memorial garden for a cookout event. The Nurture Committee is providing the hot dogs, chips, drinks, and smores for the event. We will meet at 5pm to eat. At 6pm the Education Committee will be hosting the movie “Prince of Egypt for the kids in rooms 1&2 of the Education Wing. This move relates to their current Sunday school Lesson. Pastor Jude will meet with the youth for a game of capture the flag and other fun games. The adults are invited to remain around the fire to sing old time favorite songs. If you have any questions about the event please give the office a call and you will have a chance to sign-up this Sunday in worship so we know how many are coming.
