The leaves are starting to change color. Pastor Rich

Greetings in the Name of Jesus

The leaves are starting to change color.  Darkness comes quicker.  A reminder that things are changing.  We, as people are changing.  Our hair color changes.  Our physical abilities diminish.  But our focus needs to stay on what really matters.  Colossians 3:2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.  It is easy to become distracted.  Keep your focus on Jesus.  Read God’s Word.  Concentrate on the Good News and not on all the bad news.  Jesus loves you.  He took our brokenness on himself and took our punishment that we might live with Him in Heaven.  Focus on Him and you will have true peace and joy.  As you focus on Him,  you will be blessed.

How about the Senior Saints who won the Baked Bean Bake Off at the Octoberfest,  The top three were Pam Garrett, Karen Baldwin and Peggy Pariseau.  Way to go gals!  God’s Blessings as you journey into Fall.

In Christ’s Love,

Pastor Rich


Hi folks,

Bingo the Basset Hound

The dog days are over for another year.  Kinda sad.  But I enjoy the return of the Seniors.  Thanks to all who repaired our Center.  The new green siding looks great.  Wonderful that so many came to help.  The Seniors all say thanks.

I hope all of you enjoyed your summer.  Remember if you visit another church, I would like for you to bring me a bulletin.  I pass them on to Pastor Rich.   Leslie Atiyeh brought me one from Luther Memorial Lutheran Church. 

Now time for a smile or two. 

How about some fall season smiles.

How do trees get on the Internet?  They just log on.

How do you fix a broken pumpkin?  With a pumpkin patch.

Why does Humpty Dumpty love Autumn?  Because he had a great fall.

What did the leaf say to the other leaf?  I am falling for you.

Why do birds fly south in the fall?  Because it is quicker than walking.

What happens when winter arrives?  Autumn leaves.

If the pilgrims were still alive, what would they be famous for?  Their age.

Why did the apple pie cry?  Its peelings were hurt. 

Okay that is enough for October.



Love from Bingo, your happy Basset Hound
