Twenty-second Sunday after Pentecost

This morning's altar flowers are donated by Frank and Sue Orts to the Glory of God in loving memory of Reggie Lockwood.

Our annual congregational meeting is scheduled for Sunday, November 17 immediately following the worship service. All are encouraged to attend.

The congregational report is available this morning on the link table. Members are encouraged to review the report prior to the annual meeting.

The installation of Bishop Paul Eggensteiner will take place on November 16 at 2:00 pm at St. John the Divine in New York City. All are welcome to attend.

The next meeting of the book club is Monday, November 11 at 7:00 pm.

The November/December newwsletter will go out during the week of November 17. All articles for late November and December activities are due no later than November 18.

This year we will again be collecting items to fill satchels for Christmas at Sea, an ELCA port ministry of Seafarers International House. Each satchel will contain these NEW items in darker colors:

We will be collecting these items now through December 1. Please place your items in the foot locker at the rear of the sanctuary. Monetary contributions are also accepted. If you are donating by check, please write "Seafarer" in the memo line. Thank you for your generosity.

This fall, our Bible study will be looking at St. Paul's letter to the Romans. The group will meet on Wednesdays at 7:00 pm. All from first timers to Bible study veterans are welcome to join us.

The Croton Food Pantry has been feeding those in need in this community for many years. Our Saviour has always participated in this ministry. If we could all make an effort to bring one non-perishable item on Sundays, our box in the back of the church would fill quickly. This is a wonderful way to reach out to our neighbors in need.

Christian Crafters are now turning their busy hands and sights to crafts for the December Christmas Fair. Please join us in fun and fellowship. Bring ideas and willing hands. All are welcome! Please see Lois Leonard if you have any questions.
