St. John's Epistle for November 8, 2012

Dear dedicated people of God,

Stewardship Dedication was a great celebration last Sunday. Thank you to all who pledged! We are off to a good start as we have now received 73 pledges for $319,586. Last year we ended the campaign with 83 pledges for a total of $353,250. We appreciate the Caring Committee for the delicious brunch after worship last Sunday. All in all, last Sunday was a great Stewardship Dedication day.

This Sunday we will celebrate All Saints Day. You will be able to come forward to the altar and light a candle in memory of a loved. We also will remember members of our congregation who have died in the previous year. Make it a point to be present this Sunday as we remember those who have gone before us.

This Sunday we will have a congregational bake sale to raise money for Braes Interfaith Ministries (BIM). You may bring your baked goods to Fellowship Hall and buy them there too from 8 am until noon. All proceeds will go to BIM to help feed and clothe the poor in our community.

As we approach the holidays, save your money and mark your calendar on December 2 for our annual Living Gift Market. This alternative gift market will be held in Fellowship Hall immediately after worship on December 2. Based on the planning that has gone into it, this year's Living Gift Market promises to be one of the best in recent memory. 

Your grateful for those who came before us pastor,
