I hope you are well. This Sunday we'll be looking at 2 Samuel 7:1-17, which tells the story of King David wanting to build a Temple for the Lord, but being told that he will not be the one to build it - that will be Solomon's task. In the midst of that moment, God makes a promise to David that his dynasty will last forever. We'll look at that promise and the nature of homes and home, and where God is during this time of turmoil, isolation, and loneliness for many people. And we'll revisit the two women I spoke of in a sermon months ago, who would come out to a porch out my window, and throw a dance party at around 5 or so every day, at the beginning of the pandemic. I hope you'll join us for the worship of God in word and music! Look for the ways you can join us virtually at the end of this email.
On Sunday, November 1, we'll celebrate ALL SAINTS SUNDAY, and a chance to remember those who have gone before us. Since we can't bring pictures into our sanctuary, which has been our pattern over the last decade, we're asking that you send us your pictures via email and we'll include them in the service. Please send them to us by Wednesday, October 28. And remember, they do not have to be a person connected to our church or the church - I will be sharing a photo of my own friends and family.
A reminder - our Annual Meeting is Sunday, November 22 after worship.
Our regular Tuesday Bible Study on ZOOM continues this week at noon. We'll be looking at 1 Kings 17:1-16.
