It’s always great to so see everyone gather back together after our summer activities. It will be great to hear everyone’s stories and begin plans for a wonderful church year together. To kick everything off we will have a potluck lunch on September 13 right after church. Members of the Islamic Association of Shawnee Mission plan on joining us for this meal to celebrate a successful Ramadan this summer and to discover where our future discussions and connections might be found.
Sunday October 4 will be a day of blessings as we celebrate World Communion Sunday and St. Francis Day with a Blessing of the Animals. Our morning schedule will remain the same, but many of us along with those from the community, will gather at 3:00pm to bring their pets (or pictures of their pets) for a Blessing of the Animals service on the lawn just outside the playground. This Blessing of the Animals will be a first for our church as we take seriously the importance of all animals in our lives. All are welcome regardless of whether you have a pet yourself.
What a wonderful time of fellowship and worship we have ahead of us. Come join us as we continue our mission of Giving of ourselves and caring for one another, we Worship, Learn, and Serve our needy world together.
In Ministry Together,
– Pastor Craig
