Dear Folks,

Hope you are keeping dry! Prayers rising for all those still suffering from the hurricane and the typhoon.

Thursday, September 20 is my prayer day. Please let me know if you have any joys or concerns you would like me to raise up.

This Sunday, September 23, is the Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost. It’s the beginning of a new Sunday School year! Children please go directly to the library!

Sunday’s scripture is Mark 9:30-37. The sermon is “The Little Ones”.

On Sunday, following worship, the Shelton and the Connecticut State Police will be presenting a safety seminar for our congregation. Please plan on joining us for this informative program.

There will be a meeting of potential Confirmands and their parents/guardians following worship on September 30.

Please leave any gifts in the CWS Box in Fellowship Hall.

Let us pray. O God of all that is, bless us with the assurance of your ever present love and care. May we rest in the shelter of your comforting wings. Amen.

In Christ’s love,
Rev. Lucille
