Deacon's Beacon: Oct 2019

Dear Friends, Happy fall!

It’s exciting to feel the changing of the seasons and fall is my favorite time of year. I love the cool nights and that freshness in the air that speaks of cozy nights, warm drinks, and settling in. I hope you’ve been enjoying the delicious meals and great opportunities to grow in your faith at PEAK on Wednesday evenings as well as the Sunday morning worship services. Speaking of PEAK dinners, volunteers are needed to help serve and clean up. It’s fun to help out and see friends and new comers alike. Students can earn community service hours and everyone can just enjoy doing their small part for our generous God. We serve Him when we care for others in His name. Contact Elaine Ross-Collins to sign up to help at PEAK. For those who find it difficult to get to church due to the lack of a car, inability to drive at night, or any other reason, please give Janie Roach a call
and she will get her group of volunteers to help you. This applies to trips to the doctor, shopping, and other errands, too. Don’t be shy! It’s a pleasure to be of assistance. It’s part of our Deacon mission. Janie’s phone number is (818) 326-1609. One significant area where we need help is for Sunday flowers in the Sanctuary. There is a flower chart in the Narthex, or as Lee says, the “lobby,” where you can add your name to the list to provide flowers on Sunday. You’re welcome to take the flowers home after the second service, or the Deacons will deliver them to someone in our church family who cannot come to church. We know those folks appreciate a short visit and the beauty of nature and love what the flowers represent. Remember, we are here by the grace of God and He gives us the privilege of caring for His kingdom.

Blessings to you all
