We welcomed Paula Detar, Noah Detar and Dale Bliss as members of our congregation today. They have been worshiping with us for quite some time, and we are glad to have them in our fold!

Today's lesson was based on Ecclesiastes.  Pastor Sandi also reflected on writings from Adam Hamilton.  Finding your purpose in life can be hard work.  We all can have spiritual restlessness.  She reflected on Paul, who did most of his writing from a dark place in jail, being jailed for spreading the word of Jesus. 

Pastor Sandi had us explore where one finds the most contentment.  We have jobs, and purpose in that to pay the bills, but does that serve your passion?  Passion brings us joy in sharing with others.  Contentment is purpose and passion wound together.

Safe travels to Pastor Sandi and Dave as they ready to visit their daughter Allie in Uganda. 

Just a reminder of the Woman's lunch at Antique Inn Tuesdays at noon.  Bible study has also begun- 10:00-11:30 each Wednesday at church.  Lots of opportunities for learning and sharing!

Please contact Babs if you wish to attend the Laity Banquet at Club 86 in Geneva at 3:30 on 10/14- this is a gathering and meal with other Methodists in our conference.
