the unseasonable heat has moved on and it is a gorgeous, clear, crisp fall day.
What a wonderful world God has created for our enjoyment!
We have so many
opportunities for you in this new fall season! Please join us in this next week
or two for:
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 1st is a BIG DAY! First of all, it’s World Communion
Sunday!!! Please help us celebrate by wearing or bringing something that
represents your ethnic heritage! ALSO, it will be your last chance to
contribute to turning my hair blue! Contribute to the CROP walk to raise $1000
and I will come to church on Sunday, October 15 with BLUE HAIR! I’ve never
colored my hair, so this will be my first foray into the wild world of hair
dye, so do your part to MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!! I hope any of our fitness members
will join the Blue Grass Presbyterian Church CROP walking team!!! Registration
is at 1 p.m. at Modern Woodmen Park and the six mile walk commences at 2 p.m.
October 4, at 6:30 p.m. we will be celebrating St. Francis’s Feast Day with a PET
BLESSING Service. Our pets are a sign of God’s love to us! Join us in
saying “Thank you” to God for our pets. Important note: Pets must be on leashes
or in crates. You may also represent your pet if you are unsure about bringing
him/her. We will meet at the front doors of the church, or in case of inclement
weather, we will meet in the hallway.
bells are ringing! Tracy Smyser and David Curry invite you to join them as they
celebrate together in a Service of Christian Marriage! The service is
Sunday, October 8, at 9:30 a.m. Stay after the service for wedding cake and
the month of October we will be collecting NEW underwear, socks, bras, and long
johns for the 27 various shelters in the Quad City area. This effort is the
ONLY way our brothers and sisters in need have been able to get the
undergarments we all take for granted. BLUE GRASS PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH has
historically been undefeated in collecting the greatest number of articles
across the whole Quad Cities. Let’s blow everyone away with our
generosity again this year! God bless you and God bless your gifts!!!!!
the month continues, we’ll have more and more special events – look inside for
more! In the meantime, lots of regular activities are up and running – Men’s
Breakfast, Choir, Midweek Coffee, Sunday school…. See you there!
in love and service,
The Rev. Dr. Mary N.
