Celebrate Christ’s coming

On this final Sunday of the church year our gospel is Jesus’ great story of judgment. In the end, the faithful are those who served Christ by ministering to those who are poor, hungry, naked, sick, or estranged. In the first reading God is the shepherd who seeks the lost, weak, and injured and feeds them with justice. We gather this day to celebrate the reign of Christ and his victory over death, yet awaiting the consummation of all things yet to come. Acknowledging Christ as our merciful ruler, we go forth that his reign may be known in our loving words and deeds.

The Holistic Healing Book Study

medical medium

Tuesday, Nov. 28, at 7 pm.

We will discuss “Medical Medium” by Anthony William. Mr. William, starting at age 4, has helped tens of thousands of people heal from ailments that doctors couldn’t resolve. He’s done this by listening to a divine voice that literally speaks into his ear, telling him what lies at the root of people’s pain or illness, and what they need to do to restore their health. His methods achieve results, even for those who have spent years and many thousands of dollars on all forms of medicine before turning to him. Now, in this revolutionary book, he opens the door to all he has learned over his 25 years of bringing people’s lives back: a massive amount of healing information, much of which science won’t discover for decades and most of which has never appeared anywhere before.

Poinsettia Garden

Order by December 3

A beautiful poinsettia garden will adorn the Altar this Christmas. On November 26th and December 3rd a member of the Altar Guild will be taking poinsettia orders in the narthex between services. The cost of each plant is $16.00. Prepayment is required. You may pick your poinsettia up after worship on Christmas Day. Any poinsettia not picked up by January 7th will be given to a homebound member, a local nursing home or someone in need of cheering up. On behalf of the congregation and the Altar Guild we thank you for your past orders and rely on you to once again be part of this festive tradition.

Cristo Rey Scholarship Program

El salvadore

Lake Edge has had a relationship with Cristo Rey in Santa Ana, El Salvador for 25 years. Several years ago we asked Pr. Carlos how we could help them. He said the best thing we could do was to provide an education for the children. Education is not mandatory and requires the student to wear a uniform and have their own school supplies. The cost to send a child to school is about $100.00, a month’s income for a family. Every fall Lake Edge members provide scholarship funds, which are wired to Cristo Rey in January before the start of their school year. We have been able to support around 150 children each year. Some of the children have actually been able to pursue educational opportunities after high school. If you wish to participate in this program, please identify your donation as Cristo Rey Scholarship. There are cards in the fellowship area if you wish to donate in someone’s name as an alternative holiday gift.

Matching Gifts Update

gift hands

During August and September, we drew attention to two needs for fund raising through the gifts committee:

1) The congregation approved funding a youth pastor part time for the next year for $14,400. Parents and kids both spoke up in support of retaining Pastor Christa Fisher to continue in this position. Gifts given so far total $1,755, which the gifts committee has matched. Please support this position with donations made to the gifts committee for “youth pastor” and we’ll match your gift up to a total of $3,600. The gifts committee has already spent another $3,600 for this position for January through March 2017 and is in need of your support.

2) The congregation approved funding through the gifts committee of the repair of the front rock wall and fixing the drainage issue near the front door to prevent rain water from reaching our elevator shaft and basement hallway. The total for this project is $12,650. To date, we’ve raised $25. Please donate to this project through the gifts committee and mark your donation for “rock wall repair."

As always, thank you for your support of these types of special initiatives through the gifts committee. Jim St. Vincent, Chairperson, Gifts Committee
