Pastor Margay’s October, 2017 Article

          
This month we celebrate the 500 Anniversary of the Reformation.  We celebrate a God whose love for us unconditional and direct.  St. John’s has been a witness to the abundance God has in mind for us here in Poughkeepsie for the last 116 years.  On October 22, Stewardship Sunday, you will have an opportunity to respond to God’s love for you and the whole creation, by offering your estimate of giving for 2018.   And you will offer your estimate  as an act of Worship during the service.  Then at 11:15  at our Go and Grow time, you are invited to join other members of the congregation for a celebratory brunch in the Fellowship Hall.  During the meal, there will be a skit presented by the Stewardship ministry team.  The menu is ham, cheese and egg strata by Rich and Carol Ferolito.  Please sign up in the church office, or say “yes” when someone from the telephone team calls to ask if you are coming to the brunch. There is no charge for this brunch, not even a donation basket, as a generous donor has offered to cover the cost.  Looking forward to seeing you at brunch!
