Jason is Back!

That’s right folks, I’ve officially returned from my break, and I’m starting my first day back with a frightening special Bible study during which we’ll explore the history and culture around Halloween. Regardless of how you feel about day, I promise you’ll leave with a deeper understanding of the second most celebrated holiday in the US.

Join us in-person or on Zoom for this special Bible study this afternoon: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83431443393

If you can’t make it tonight, I look forward to seeing you this Sunday, October 30th for our weekly worship service at 10:00am in the sanctuary and on Zoom. This Sunday is also Reformation Sunday, where we acknowledge the significance of those who founded our denomination during one of the most significant shifts in church history. As usual, fellowship will follow the service.

This Sunday, I’ll be preaching from the Gospel text found in Luke 19–the story of Zacchaeus. If you’d like to read it and other other lectionary texts, they are included in the Order of Worship below.

Here are your announcements for this Sunday and the week ahead:

Games Up Here
Join us for “Games up here” on Monday, October 31st at the Presbyterian Annex at 7:00pm.

Wednesday Bible Study
Join us this Wednesday, November 2nd at 5:00pm in Darley Hall as we look at the other side of Halloween. During this Bible study, we’ll examine All Saint’s Day, Reformation Day, All Soul’s Day and the Day of the Dead.Β 

Men’s Prayer Breakfast
Join the men of Lake City this Thursday, November 3rd at 7:00am for good food, prayer, and Bible study.

Next Sunday, November 6th
We’ll be celebrating Communion, next Sunday, November 6th during our worship service, which will be followed by our monthly Potluck directly after the service. The theme for this month’s potluck is Thanksgiving. Turkey will be provided, so please bring your favorite Thanksgiving dish.

What’s Happening in October?

Hey Everyone,

I’m certain that’s a question that some of you are asking. As many of you know, I will be taking three weeks vacation in October. During that time, my family and I will be visiting Judah in Santa Fe, doing some work on our house and I’ll end my time away, conducting a wedding in Pittsburgh for a old friend of our family. I will return on Thursday, October 26th with a frighteningly scary Bible study on the topic of Halloween. We’ll meet at 5:00pm at the Presbyterian Annex for this chilling gathering. πŸ™‚

And, for those wondering what the plan is for Sunday morning worship. I’m delighted to share that our Session and a few other folks from the body will be leading us in worship for the next three weeks. We’ve got a great line up of preachers, we’ll be singing hymns from our summer series, and as always, we’ll still have cookies and coffee fellowship. (Speaking of which, we could use a few more dozen cookies for those who like to bake). πŸ™‚

On October 9th, Rev. Keri Shelton, the Stated Clerk of Presbytery of Western Colorado, will be preaching. Then, on October 16th, we’ll have a blast-from-the-past preacher, as Dr. John Roose graces our pulpit once again. Rounding out this trifecta, I couldn’t be more thrilled to announce that our very own Ron Bruce will be bringing the Word on the third Sunday, October 23rd.

Although our Clerk of Session, John Bonner, will be bringing you the most up-to-date announcements each week, just a reminder… There will be NO Games Up Here or Wednesday Bible Study for the next three weeks.

We’ll still be Zoom broadcasting during my vacation and you can attend our Sunday services through this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/88489308747?pwd=RHVFY1BybkU0a1RXZE9GRlBZWWpNUT09
