ADULT CHRISTIAN EDCATION November 15 Presentation: Laudato Si—A discussion of Pope Francis’s Encyclical on the care of the earth led by Keith Edwards, John Prince, and Rufus Hallmark will be offered after Coffee Hour. Printouts telling where to get hold of a copy of the encyclical, as well as were to find reviews and discussions of it, are located on the Ushers Table in the rear of the church, or upon request from the parish office.
BRING A FRIEND TO CHURCH SUNDAY: November 22 Lots of people say that more than once it crossed their minds to check out what church might be like, but they don’t know how to “do it”—how to “go” and how to “act” once they cross the threshold. Give them the gift of an invitation! Ask them if they’d like to come to church with you on November 22. They will at least learn something about you—what brings meaning and joy and direction to your life.
ADULT CHRISTIAN EDUCATION OFFERING for December 20: “Re-Considering Handel’s Messiah”, a presentation led by Rufus Hallmark and Vince Peterson as a prelude to our annual “Messiah Sing” to be held later that evening.
MESSIAH Sing Sunday, December 20, 7:00 p.m. Already our (now) annual Messiah Sing has become a favorite holiday event of parishioners and neighbors alike. And although tickets are “cheep,” a crowded audience greatly helps the parish budget. Our own Vince Peterson directs a baroque orchestra and professional soloists, while the audience sings the great choruses of Handel’s Messiah, concluding with the thrilling Hallelujah chorus. After the “sing,” all are invited to the Parish Hall for seasonal homemade cookies and warm cider. Tickets go on sale beginning November 15, but mark your calendar now, and invite friends to join you.
PLEASE PRAY FOR THE ANNUAL CONVENTION OF THE DIOCESE OF LONG ISLAND which will be held on November 13 and 14. Our parish lay delegate, Ben Ellis, joins the Rector in representing St. Paul’s.
