A Note from Pastor Rafe
The Shepherd's Vigil
This past Sunday was a great day of worship. I love worship! However Sunday turned out to be a different kind of day. We had a funeral service that afternoon for a beloved member of our church family. That was sad and wonderful at the same time.
Funerals have always affected me for the rest of the day. Then Sunday became a day of more sadness. I am a big baseball fan and love the Marlins. Then news of the tragic death of Jose Fernandez left many of us stunned. I also like golf, and before the day was over Arnold Palmer had passed.
I spent Sunday evening kind of stunned. Then Monday night I watched the Marlins game and witnessed the sadness in the team. I love baseball but the emotions transcended the game. I also saw tributes to Arnold Palmer and remembered all he had done.
Many of us enjoy sports but death seems to help us get past the game and see the person. I think we like sports and charismatic sports personalities because they remind us to enjoy life and play.
Life is precious. Yes we can enjoy sports but true life is found in the joy and passion of "playing with our friends". That is what God gives us in the community of faith, the joy of life in every part of our journey. I pray you find this joy as you share in the life of the church.
See you on Sunday,
The Pumpkins Are Coming - HAPPY OCTOBER! Truck #1 Saturday
Did you know we have been turning our field into the 'most sincere pumpkin patch' in Broward County for more than 25 years? Great stories are shared from moms and dads who visited when they were children and are now bringing their children! Check out some of the pictures on our website.
We have trucks arriving October 1-8 -15-22 and need many hands to help unload. Youth service hours available. Please join us at the patch! Many volunteers make this month long community outreach and fundraiser successful.
Please sign up on the poster in the hallway to help daily at the patch. We have preschool classes coming for their pumpkin patch field trip each morning. If you can come for an hour especially from 3 pm to close that is more helpful than you might realize especially the last two weeks of the month!
Pumpkin Sales—Our patch is open each day 9am - dark and volunteers are needed to help with sales. Our supplier prices the pumpkins. We need to be available to help shoppers choose that perfect pumpkin!
