Pastor’s Weekly Email Message – October 26, 2014

God’s grace will be in plentiful supply this coming Sunday, October 26 at 10:30 AM!  It is a gift.  We cannot earn it or pay for it.  But we can hear about it, receive it, and share it as the people of God.  Come and hear more this Reformation Sunday!

Parents/Kids Alert!  Trinity Lutheran Church (2170 Route 212 in Pleasant Valley) is holding a “Trunk or Treat” event on Halloween – Friday, October 31, from 5:30-7:30 PM.  If you have a little one whose feet give so you have to carry them, or if your feet give out before the kids do, or if you’re tired of the stop and go driving because the house are so far apart, Trunk or Treat in the Trinity parking lot is the solution!  For more information, call Trinity at 610-346-7282, or visit their website at

All Saints’ Sunday, November 2 at 10:30 AM – We’ll celebrate the baptism of every worshiper and remember the saints who have preceded us, died and entered the Kingdom of Heaven — with candles, bells, prayers, etc.  Come and celebrate the whole church – God’s Great Cloud of Witnesses!

The weather has turned colder — brrr!!!  Many of us are blessed with warm homes to weather the temperatures for the next 6 months.  But what about the 50 or more homeless people in and around Upper Bucks County?  On December 1, the churches in our area will begin our second year of Code Blue Outreach to these men and women.  Host churches will open their doors on any evening December 1 – March 31, when the temperature or wind chill drops below 260 F.  Many volunteers are needed to sleep over with the homeless on designated nights, provide transportation, provide a meal, and other forms of service.  Training is provided and is a must for all volunteers.  The next training is November 16 at West Swamp Mennonite Church, 2501 Allentown Rd., Quakertown.  Please contact me ASAP at 610-346-8314 if you would like to volunteer in any way.  A few folks for Durham volunteered last winter and can explain more of what is involved.
