The newsletter is going out really early this week. Claudette and I will be traveling this week so today was the best day to get this out.
I want to remind everyone that this Sunday is the first of the month so we will be celebrating the Lord’s Table. There will also be a Fellowship Meal after worship. You are invited to bring a dish to pass.
We are having a guest speaker this Sunday. The Rev. Nancy Bickel will be filling in. Nancy and her husband Ken were co-pastors at 1st Congregational UCC here in Dubuque for twenty-six years. Nancy is a wonderful preacher and she is Julia’s mom.
Kudo’s to Dawn and Brian Burch who are leading our guest ministry. They are making sure that no one gets in or out of the building without a friendly hello! Brian is going to have some surgery, so they will be needing some help. If you would like to officially help out talk to either of them of the pastor. But this ministry is really something we all have to own. If you see someone you don’t know, go up and introduce yourself. Bring them over t the pastor and introduce them. I know many of you do this anyway, but I wanted to remind you to keep up the good work.
In two weeks we will be showing an excellent film on Friday, October 12, entitled, “I Can Only Imagine.” Why not invite someone from your network and come watch the movie together?
Congratulations on voting to approve the “get out of the mud” project. We can now move forward on this and will see its completion in a few weeks, weather permitting.
Blessings to you all. See you next week!
Rev. Timothy Bees
First Baptist Church Of Dubuque
