Sunday, November 14 was the twenty-fourth Sunday after trinity. It was also the annual Harvest Festival at which time we collect items for the Food Harvest of the Ozarks and a good number of items were brought to the church as donations. As always the altar guild under the leadership of Rita Fancher had the church beautifully decorated with an autumn motif and the altar was furnished for the occasion with the bright green and gold linens that are only once a year at this time as well as altar flowers consisting of mums and autumn leaves.
Fr. Glen based his sermon on the epistle for the day, Colossians 1:3, in which St. Paul discusses the characteristics and requirements of the Christian life which requires duties both to God and to our fellow man.
We were glad to have our acolytes Chandler and Lincoln back from their trip to Des Moines, Iowa for a leadership conference of the Future Business Leaders of America; both reported they had a good trip and a positive experience. We appreciate these young men and the contributions they make to our church and community.
After church we had a potluck dinner followed by the November vestry meeting at which church business and finances were discussed.
