ALL WELCOME SO INVITE YOUR FRIENDS!
SEPTEMBER “ABOVE AND BEYOND” AWARD GOES TO
The GCC Worship Committee
All who helped out with the 2018 Pie & Ice Cream Social
The Pie & Ice Cream Social (held on Saturday, Sept. 1) was a terrific success! Not only was it a financial success ($2,108.00), but it was also a day of good, old-fashioned New England fun – hay rides, checkers on the front lawn, silent auction, live music by Vinoy Laughner and Karen Newpower; and, of course, delicious pie and ice cream!
Thanks to everyone who helped – our guests, the businesses, individuals and the devoted Worship committee who, every year, plans this event.
See you next year when the community comes together again at the 2019 Pie & Ice Cream Social!
SCRIPTURE READINGS FOR NEXT SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 23
A good wife is to be valued because she cares for her family and her servants, she provides for her household, she brings honor to her husband and she is hard working and resourceful.
Righteous people are blessed because they do not follow the ways of the wicked, but love God’s instruction. They are like trees planted by streams, bearing fruit and always succeeding. The wicked, however, are destroyed.
James 3:13-4:3, 7-8a:
Wise followers of Christ should live a humble life. Jealousy and selfish ambition are not wise, but cause evil, conflict, murder and struggle. Therefore God’s people should resist evil, submit to God, draw near to God, and seek to be cleansed.
Jesus predicts his death and resurrection, and then challenges the disciples for arguing about which of them is greatest. Then he teaches them that the greatest in God’s Reign must be the slave of all, and that whoever welcomes a child, welcomes Jesus, and the One who sent him.
