Worship: “It’s Scary…” RevAlex

Our children help us begin worship today with our Annual Halloween Parade of Costumes! (Children and Adults are encouraged to come to church this Sunday in costume.) It’s our “Scary to Be Hungry” Sunday on which we’ll learn about the incredible food drive that our children are mounting to insure that no one in the Roanoke Valley goes hungry in the upcoming winter months. In adult worship, we’ll ponder gifts of fear especially the gift of sainthood. Come, Come to laugh with our wonderful children! Come, Come with gifts of food and money for our children’s food drive. Come, Come to face the fears of our time and ponder the possibility that great gift does lie in them!
