At the same time, through the water and the Word of Baptism, God will wash away their sin and declare them to be His daughters whom He dearly loves.

Sacred Acts - Baptism: This morning Harper Elizabeth Joyce, daughter of James and Jennifer (Scutt) Joyce will be baptized with water and in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Her Godparents are Aaron and Meghan Peters. We praise God for His great gift to us of Holy Baptism for through it He has washed away Harper’s sins, planted the seed of faith in Jesus as her Savior, and has declared her to be His very own child whom He dearly loves. We pray that as she grows in years she will be brought up in the knowledge of the Lord and faithfully be in His House so that her faith will grow, she will remain steadfast in Christ, all the days of her life, and obtain eternal life.

News and Notes for Sunday, September 30, 2012



Donations may be placed in the box labeled Chinese Auction under the sign-up table. 

October 20th--save the date! The Hearts and Hands craft sale and Chatterbox Cafe provide a wealth of opportunities. If you'd like to be part of the merry crew that makes it happen, you can help direct vendors during set-up, be a runner, sell Chinese Auction tickets, feed and care for our guests in the cafe or help clean up the aftermath of a good time had by all. Another way, possibly the most popular way, to help is to round up some friends and attend the sale and have a great lunch. As always, sign-up sheets are in the lobby and you can call Karalee Morris, Shelly Dunne or Deb Kling with questions you may have. No matter what form of participation you choose, we'll be happy to have you with us.

His God parents are Michael and Kathleen Lamberson. Through water and the Word the seed of faith will be planted in Kelston and God the Father declares; “Kelston, you are My son who I love and am well pleased.” We praise God for the gifts He bestows upon Kelston through Baptism. We pray that Kelston will be brought up in the Lord through the years and remain in fellowship with the Church so that He will remain steadfast in the saving faith of Jesus as his Savior and gain eternal life in heaven.

Arieanna’s parents are Robert Porter and Kristin Fahs. Her Godparents are William Fahs and Caitlyn Slep. We praise God that through this Sacrament He has planted in Arieanna’s heart the seed of faith in Jesus as her Savior and made her His very own child. We pray that as she grows in years, she hears and is taught God’s Word and remains in communion with the Church so that she may mature in the Christian faith, especially growing and remaining steadfast in the belief that Jesus is her Savior from sin and death, and thereby obtain the crown of righteousness, eternal life.
