Announcements

The flowers this week are given to the glory of God by Stan & Sharon McCaslin.

Presbyterian Women will meet on Tuesday, November 14 at 10:00 a.m. in the fellowship hall to work on various projects.  Please bring a sandwich for lunch.

Westminster will be hosting the joint Thanksgiving worship service on Sunday, November 19.  Following worship, we will gather in the fellowship hall for a meal of soup and salad.  If you would like to volunteer to make soup, bake cookies, help with set up or clean up, etc., please add your name to the sign-up sheet in the parlor or speak with Kathy Miller.  Attendees are asked to bring canned goods to the lunch to help stock the food pantry at Pilgrim Church.

The study group that formed during this year's Lenten series around reading the book Waking Up White has continued throughout the year.  We continue to focus on reading books that deepen our understanding of how racism has shaped our society and how that plays out in people's lives. We would love to have more people join us.  Our next book is Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America, by Michael Eric Dyson.  Our next gathering will be on Tuesday, November 28 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at Pilgrim Church. Since this is a new book that isn't widely available in libraries, Rita Hill is arranging for some copies to be available for purchase at a discounted price.  Her email address is 4rhill@prodigy.net.  People may also contact Susan Baron if they have questions.

If you have not yet returned your Time and Talent Survey and Pledge Card for 2018, please do so at your earliest convenience.
