Today’s blog is a short collection of tidbits of things coming up in the next week you might want to know about.

First, please remember to submit your Estimate of Giving card this Sunday, October 29th so the Stewardship Team can begin working on the 2024 budget. You can drop it off in the box in the gathering space, pop it in snail mail, drop it off at the office, or click here to submit it online. Please remember that every EOG counts!

Second, this Sunday is Reformation Sunday. It is the 506th anniversary of the day Martin Luther nailed his 97 theses to the church door in Wittenberg. This Sunday we will hear the story of dear Martin and the movement he started that became the Lutheran church as we know it. The color of the day is RED!!!

Third, Tuesday is Halloween! It is also known as All Hallows Eve or All Saints Eve because it is the day before All Saints Day where we remember those who have died. Now the traditions of Jack-o-lanterns, Trick or Treat, ghosts, and goblins were most likely influenced by some pagan rituals long ago. As the church, we will celebrate All Saints Day next Sunday, November 5th by remembering those who have died in the past year. As for all the silliness and fun of Halloween…it’s just another day to celebrate and have fun!

See you Sunday!
