Weekly Announcements

WELCOME TO WEST LEBANON CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH, U.C.C.
Sunday, October 8, 2017

Welcome to worship here today here at WLCC. As the morning frost becomes a more predictable morning occurrence – may the Son and light of the world shine upon you (as well as the hospitality you experience here) and warm you significantly!

Today, we continue with stewardship moments highlighting a stop on our  “Journey to Generosity” with a scenic presentation from “Motivation Mountain”, with heartfelt thanks to our stewardship team for their leadership.

Thanks to everyone (including men’s group ‘hangers on’ after their breakfast) who helped clean the Drake Room and lent a hand with some service work around the church yesterday.

Today we will be receiving the Neighbors in Need special mission offering for the second/final week.  One-third of the offering undergirds the work of the Council for American Indian Ministry (CAIM), two-thirds of the offering supports justice advocacy and direct service projects such as just-peace programs and community grants.

Announcement from the MISSION COMMITTEE
CROP WALK – Have you had anything to eat or drink this morning?  If yes you have been fortunate.  Today those walking and donating to CROP WALK (12:30pm in Lebanon Green) will help people who have not eaten get and grow food.  In coffee hour there will be some folks who will be walking and hoping you will support them.  It is a good feeling to remember that a good amount of this money stays to help folks in the Upper Valley.

See the Order Form for wreaths in today’s bulletin. Please turn your orders in to Women’s Fellowship by October 22nd.

Book/Bible Study. Week 3: Wednesday, 6:30PM, All are welcome. We will be studying the following passages having to do with Quitting: /Jonah Flees/ John 1, Devotional, Psalm 42-43, /It’s Not  Over/ Luke 24:13-35, /Finish the Race/ 2 Timothy 3:10=4:8

The registration forms for Sunday School will be available for a few more Sundays. As you all might know, we are still looking for school helpers and/or teachers. If you would like to help educate our children, please see any of the Sunday School teachers or Jeff. Even if you think you could only do it once! Any help is gratefully welcome!
