Wednesday Highlights

October begins on Sunday!  Here are some of the things on my list for this busy month:
  • Sunday School begins!
  • Confirmation class for grades 6-8 will begin on October 15, the Third Sunday, from 12:30 to 3:00.
  • On Sunday, October 29, Shepherd of the Valley will celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. There will be one worship service that day at 10:00 a.m. and a potluck will follow. During the month of October a special offering opportunity will be available to contribute to the needs of those affected  by fires and hurricanes during the last several weeks. More information will follow from the committees!
  • I will be gone for a few days (9th through the 11th) for the annual Synod Bishop's Convocation, a time for rostered ministers and pastors of the Oregon Synod to gather with synod staff for learning, training and conversation.
  • Stewardship! Watch for opportunities to think about giving as a part of your discipleship as the Council and Committees begin to develop a Spending Plan for next year.
I hope your fall is going well! See you at worship.

Pastor Dan
