This Week at HTLC, November 11, 2016

Hi, everyone,

This Sunday is November 13th, 26th Sunday after Pentecost and Scrip Sunday.  It is not All Saints Sunday as the bulletin insert reads.  (I only notice these things after I print!)

Let the feasting begin!  On Tuesday, Nov 15th the Daytimers are having their annual Thanksgiving Potluck at 11:30 AM following the 10:00 Bible Study.  All are invited. You don’t have to bring anything; you don’t have to come to the Bible Study.  All you have to do is show up and eat!  (Now there’s a church function I can really get behind – as if my behind wasn’t big enough already)  There will be no Bible Study the following week, since we’ll all still be recovering from…

Another Thanksgiving Potluck following the single service at 10:00 AM on Sunday, Nov 20th.  There is a sign-up sheet on the media table for those who would like to bring food.  Sunday School will meet at 9:00 before the service, and Adult Forum and Parenting Forum will not meet.  Then you will only have four days to get hungry again before it’s Thanksgiving for real.  (I think someone has misinterpreted the phrase “growing our congregation”)

November’s Cause of the Month is Adopt an Angel.  There are still a few tags on the Angel Tree in the narthex.  Please help us ensure that children in foster care have a wonderful Christmas by participating.  Just choose an Angel tag from the tree, purchase the gift, and put it unwrapped under the tree by Sunday, November 27th (only two days after Black Friday!).  If you are unable to shop, you can give a gift card or donation to Cheryl Kuhlmann and she will shop for you.

Also, the Angel Tea will be on Saturday, December 3, 2015 at 11:30 AM, $35 per person, Limit 25 people.  All proceeds go to purchase Christmas gifts for children who are in the care of Alameda County due to unsafe conditions in their homes.  The tea is held at the home of Laurel Beebe, 35839 Hibiscus Ct., Fremont, CA 94536.  Carpooling will be arranged once sign-ups are complete.  Questions?  Contact Cheryl Kuhlmann at 510-502-0890

See you in church!
