The Spire for January 19th, 2022
As we hum the beautiful song: "In the Bleak Mid Winter” (an old high school chorus favorite) remember that Everyday is a gift!
We have completed the first cycle of our rotating Interim Pastors with one weather adjustment.
After last week’s service Ed Townsend guided us through our first “visioning” exercise. He reviewed our history of pastor’s
making the point that we, like so many small churches were training grounds and stepping stones for those who accepted our call.
Posing questions like how does that feel, and what does it mean, we explored how we can move forward as a more unified congregation.
In growing as a team together with you: Ed suggested he, Naomi and I were available for one on one conversations via email, telephone or Zoom. Personal contact by phone or Zoom is much preferred. Ed and Naomi are not local so reaching out to them is a great way for you to get to know them and ask your questions and offer your thoughts.
Initial contact can be via Email:
We had a nice turn out for this congregational meeting and our second meeting will be Sunday February 13th! Please join us: you are welcome!
Our drive thru “Stone Soup Dinner" will be held tomorrow (Thursday 1/20) beginning at 4pm.
All are welcome at this table.
Greg Jenkins will be our guest pastor this Sunday, please join him at 10AM.
This Sunday has been designated as Per Capita Sunday. It is a day to recognize being a connectional church!
Being a connectional church takes both the contribution of gifts to per capita and the work of pastors and elders who together advise, guide, and govern our General Assembly, synods, and presbyteries. An example of the work of our Presbytery is the development and support of the Interim Team working with the churches in Northern New York including Lowville!!
If you have any news you would like to share in The Spire please send it to me at the email above!
Have a great week! Stay in touch with each other!
"No one has ever seen God, but if we love one another, God lives in us.” 1 John 4:12
The Presbyterian Women will be meeting each month on the 2nd Tuesday at 10:00 am in the Church Basement (Fellowship Hall). All the women of the church are invited!
