This Week at Holy Family

HOSPITALITY HOUR SIMPLIFIED We are making hosting our hospitality hour after worship easier.  If you would like to host, please bring in a simple snack, for example donuts, and place on the table with napkins. We will also be collecting items to stock up a hospitality hour pantry—fast and easy items like crackers and cookies than can be set out quickly if no one has signed up to host.  If you would like to contribute, please place items on the kitchen counter.  Thank you!

FLOWER MINISTRY Many thanks to Gloria Durham who has tended to the flower ministry at church each week for years. Your “green thumb” and beautiful touch has been most appreciated! If you are interested in providing flowers on a particular week at church, please contact Pastor Corinne by the Thursday prior to the service. She will set out the flower stand next to the officiant’s chair. We ask that you arrive 15 minutes prior to service, if you are providing flowers. Please note that Advent starts December 2 and there are no flowers during the Advent season.

SHARING OUR GIFTS OF GOD Fall is the time for each of us to reflect on how we are sharing our individual gifts of time, talent and treasure for God’s glory. We give not because we have to, but out of gratitude for all the Lord has given us. We are in need of Altar Guild members, Lay Eucharistic Ministers and Bishop’s Committee members. If you feel God is calling you to serve in this way, please speak with Pastor Corinne. Also, we appreciate receiving all 2019 estimates of giving or pledges by November 4. Thank you!
