This is the Season of Generosity
 

The Word:    1 Thessalonians 5:1-11, putting on the armor of faith;
and Matthew 25:14-30 the Parable of the Talents.


Our Message: "Oh Ye of Little Faith.   
 This parable always seemed to be a backwards way of looking at wealth. 
Then I realized it is about Faith. 
No wonder it never fit a stewardship message! 
Faith, relationship with God...if you don't have one or the other, life is that much harder. 


With Children: Kay Lautzenheiser will offer the Time for Children then the children are invited to attend Church School.

In Music: 
HANDBELL PRELUDE:  “With Praise and High Thanksgiving” – Ryan          
YOUTH CHOIR:  “Simple Gifts/Pachelbel’s Canon”- arr. Moore
SENIOR CHOIR ANTHEM:  “Autumn Carol” – Schulz-Widmar  
 HANDBELL OFFERTORY:  “Simple Gifts” - Kinyon        
POSTLUDE:  “Thanksgiving” - Callahan
