Thought for the Week:   All Saints.

I know a lot of saints, I do, so let me mention just a few:

I know someone who runs a team and teaches kids to play and dream,

Who stands in cold and wind and rain, on days they play and nights they train;

Someone who's there when we are sad, the best and gentlest friend we've had,

Someone who says "just do your best”, when I am scared to take a test;

A friend who takes the time to show, how things were done so long ago;

A teacher who just always knows, where the comma always goes;

And others who are kind and good, who try to act as Jesus would;

Who show God's love in all they do,

I know a lot of Saints, Don't you?   (Christy Kenneally)


An Invitation to Teenagers: Thursday night’s mission talk at 8 00 pm will have a special theme for young people. Kristen Mahon from the mission team will lead this youth night.

This is to prepare for and to make the Thursday Youth Mission night memorable
