During this Season of Creation, let us remember that we are stewards of what God has provided for us, not owners. 

*  Do you know how the Bible Stories are told in Godly Play? If you would like to know, why not come some Sunday morning in October at 11 a.m.  For example, on October 6, you will hear and learn about "the Ark and the Tent."

*  The Ride for Refuge takes place this coming Saturday, October 5, at 8:30 a.m. To date $930 has been raised.  Donations will be gratefully accepted until October 31.  

*  I assume you are helping the CLB by storing your recyclables until Saturday, October 26, when the CLB will be collecting them door to door; or, if you choose, you can drop them to the church parking lot from 10 until 2 p.m. on that day.  Thanks for your continual support.

 Youth group!!! We are meeting on Friday, October 4, from 7 to 9, at the Church of the Ascension.  Please bring a t-shirt, socks, or a hat for tie-dying.  You are kindly welcome to bring a friend.

*  If you are doing your grocery shopping soon, the food bank would appreciate if you could add tinned fruit, tea bags, and/or sugar to help the needy.  Thanks, as always, for your generosity. 

*  Thanksgiving Sunday is October 13 and as usual we will be decorating our church with items to reflect our thankfulness for our many blessings.  We would like to see you at the church on Saturday, October 12, from 10 to 11 a.m. with things such as vegetables, preserves, baked goods, berries, flowers, and whatever you deem suitable to display your gratitude to God in this way.  

*  Our traditional Jiggs Dinner will be on Friday, October 18, in the church auditorium.  Tickets for the dinner (adults $20 and children under 12 $10) can be booked or purchased starting Sunday after the 11 a.m. service.  There will be only one sitting at 6 p.m. and only 150 tickets will be sold on a first come first served basis.Take outs are available! They must be picked up 5 and 5:30 that day.  Deadline for all tickets is Sunday, October 13.

*  And for you card players, on Tuesday, October 22, there will be a card party at 7 p.m. in the church auditorium.  Thanksgiving goods will be sold at that time as well.  So with just $6, and your cards and basket, you will be all set for a fun evening. 

*  Captains, please remind your teams:  Sidespersons' Team # 2, and Counting Team # 5.

*  The next evening service will be Sunday, October 27, at 6:30 p.m.
God Bless,
Jean on behalf of Ascension
