A HUGE thank you to Butch and Lynne Porter for their donation of a Baby Grand Piano! It looks fresh, new and shiny in the Sanctuary. What a generous gift and blessing. Our Old Piano has been donated to Gulf Pointe Plaza.
Holy Cross will be singing for the residents at Gulf Pointe Plaza on Friday the 16th at 11am. Anyone in the congregation is welcome to join us at 1008 Enterprise Blvd, Rockport. It’s all about being kind and attentive to the nursing home patients there, not whether you sing well. We will be singing Thanksgiving songs from our Hymnal.
We have a new sign up station for Ushers, Readers, Flowers and Cookies, it is located outside the Secretary’s office. Please sign up for assisting with worship and fellowship.
The “Prayer Warriors” Group is off to a great start! The “prayer wall” is being used and we are so pleased to be able to help out our members with extra prayers. If interested in volunteering, please see sign-up sheet. Feel free to add your own prayers. All prayer requests will be held in the utmost confidence.
Choir practice will be held every Tuesday at 5pm at the church from now on.
If interested in joining Choir, please contact Toni Post. You do not need to read music to be a part of this special group.
Castaways Report : Monica read a heartfelt card sent to us by Peace Lutheran for our involvement and share of the work. Volunteers are STILL needed Monday mornings and all day Wednesdays. Please make time in your schedule to assist with this worthy cause!
Please consider being an Altar Guild. If you are interested in serving feel free to contact Lee Price or any member of the Altar Guild.
Devotional booklets for the season are on the table at the entrance of the church. Please pick one up.
If you are a Lector/Reader and would like your Celebrate early to practice, please see me for a copy. I have them through the end of the year.
Secretary’s office hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday ~ 900am to 1130am. I can always be reached on my cell phone 210-787-7000. Please leave a message as I usually don’t answer unknown numbers. I will store your number and call you right back (just too many spam calls) I am always reachable by email as well. (see below.)
If you have anything you would like added to future reminders, please let me know. Any information is good information.
