Weekly Announcements

 

WELCOME TO WEST LEBANON CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH, U.C.C.
Sunday, November 10, 2019

 Welcome and Announcements: Welcome to worship today at WLCC: where, as friend, as visitors, as God’s beloved children – you are loved, you are precious, and you matter!

Prayer before worship: Help us, Lord, to become masters of ourselves, that we may become the servants of others. Take our hands and work through them. Take our minds and think through them. Take our lips and speak through them. And, take our hearts and set them on fire. (Gomes)  

 Today we thank members of our Stewardship Committee; for their creative and inspiring series of presentation, (including today’s from Laurie Tosteonson) these last few weeks, based on this year’s theme, Catch the Wave. And this is the day! Today is Dedication Sunday. We will be receiving and dedicating our pledges for 2020.  Please join in the festive “luau” following worship, as we celebrate.

Survey says?  Please get yours in today!  We are beginning to wrap up the survey and it is essential that everyone participate, so please submit any remaining surveys today so that we will have heard from each member and congregant. Our hope is to begin collating and organizing results to help determine the direction we take – in restructuring our committees and ministries as well as the ways we “do church” here at WLCC.

 Today we give thanks for Aaron and John’s gift of music during the offering and dedication of our pledges.
