November 5 marked our first worship service with the Rev. Dr. Nancy H. Soukup, our new minister. The service, including her sermon, “Traveling through the Land of Unlikeness,” can be seen HERE.
It being All Souls Sunday, we joyfully celebrated the lives of those saints and souls in our congregation and among our families who had died during the past year. As it was also the Sunday associated with Veterans Day, we celebrated the many veterans who are associated with the church family. Finally, as we do every first Sunday of each month, we celebrated Communion, to which all are invited. This Sunday, it was celebrated by intinction. As the congregation lined up to receive the bread and wine, members who have known Rev. Soukup for the many years she has been a close friend of the church took the opportunity to give her a hug and a word of welcome.
