From the Pastor’s Pen:

Dear Friends in Christ,

The Yard sale, held this past Saturday, raised about $1,200.00 for our Outreach Ministries. Because of this, people in need and or distress will have their lives blessed and hopes raised. I know that raising these funds did not come about without a lot of hard and time consuming work. My thanks to Sue DeGraff and those who put in hours preparing for the Sale, staffing the merchandise tables, the food and bake good venues, and clearing and cleaning at the close of the day. Bless you, every one of you.

Faithfully,      

Bill

For the Week of June 10 – June 16
Sunday, June 10, 2018
Service begins at 10:00 a.m.

From the Pastor’s Pen:

Dear Friends in Christ,

 This past Saturday, the 2nd of June, our Vacation Bible School team spent the morning planning for the July 9-13 event. It was a very productive meeting, and my thanks to Barbara Scira for leading us through an examination of the curriculum. Also, my thanks to the team members for stepping forth to take on the leadership roles necessary for a successful Vacation Bible School (VBS).

 This year’s VBS theme is BLESSED ARE THE PEACEMAKERS. The curriculum is Bible based and is developed around Matthew 5:9: Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. The goal is that the children will understand that:

  • Peacemakers find good ways to solve problems.
  • Peacemakers help other people.
  • Peacemakers speak up for what is right.
  • Peacemakers ask for help to resolve conflicts.

 The VBS is open to children entering kindergarten through children entering the fifth grade. Since we are getting back into VBS after several years off, we are limiting the enrollment number to about 20. There will be information and registration forms available at the Yard sale this Saturday the 9th of June.

 Jesus said, Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.

Faithfully,      

Bill

For the Week of June 3 – June 9
Sunday, June 3, 2018
Service begins at 10:00 a.m.

From the Pastor’s Pen:

Dear Friends in Christ,

 This week a word of congratulations to all in the Saint Nicholas’ orbit who are graduating from high school or college. What a wonderful and exciting time it is to be engaged in the transition that graduation marks. New adventures are ahead, decisions are to be made and goals to be set.

 Some of you will be going to work, some into the military, and some will be continuing your formal education. Whatever choice is made, may it be one that gives fulfillment and provides opportunity for using and developing the gifts and skills that are yours.

 May the Lord bless you and keep you, may the Lord make his face shine upon you and give you peace, this day and all the days of your life. 

 

Faithfully,      

 Bill

(The Very Reverend William B. Lane)
