CFL Schedule

September 10 – Grandparent Sunday and Affirmation of GO! Challenge, Deacon Jane Elliott and Fran Derhammer

CFL will celebrate the gift of grandchildren and grandparents. We will share stories of grandparents at Holy Spirit, the difference they are making to create meaningful relationships with their grandchildren, ideas of ways to connect and things to do together, joys and challenges. We will close by linking arms with fellow grandparents to pray for our grandchildren. Come, celebrate the blessing of grandchildren.

We will also celebrate the growth and progress of the well-being of those who accepted the summer Go! Challenge by recognizing results of “stretch goals” on the “I Completed the GO! Challenge bulletin board”.

September 17 – Council Forum, Lorie Stout Sherman, Council President

The Fall Council Forum will provide up to date information concerning the congregation’s fiscal status, property issues including the nave/narthex HVAC and project funding, the status of the search for an Associate Pastor focusing on youth and young adults and their families, as well as a Mission Statement revision.

September 24 – Bible Sunday, John Mosovsky

Attendees are requested to bring their personal Bibles to this session and share any history or significance that may be associated with them.  We will also discuss favorite passages, Bible history and Martin Luther on the Bible.
