Lord’s Supper – All of today's bread is gluten, soy, dairy, and nut free

The Elders have made a decision to not hold a service here in Carlisle on Sunday October 14, during the weekend of the retreat. The Elders encourage you to attend the Retreat held at Camp Berea on Newfound Lake in Hebron, NH, there are sign-up sheets for the Retreat, just outside the sanctuary.

Adult Sunday School this Fall - We will study together, led by elders and past elders, a 6-part video series with R. C. Sproul titled “The Holiness of God.”  The Holiness of God examines the meaning of holiness and why people are both fascinated and terrified by a holy God. This series closely explores God’s character, leading to new insights on sin, justice, and grace. The result is a new awareness of our dependence upon God’s mercy and a discovery of the awesomeness of His majestic holiness. Dr. R.C. Sproul says, “The holiness of God affects every aspect of our lives—economics, politics, athletics, romance—everything with which we are involved.”

Ladies’ “Nite” Out – All ladies are cordially invited to the next meeting of the Ladies’ “Nite” Out to be held Friday, October 19, in the church library at 7:00 p.m. Gretchen M. will be in charge of the program – more on this next week. We hope you will join us for a pleasant evening together.

Thank You from Keith & Bonnie G. – We are back home and quickly settled back into the work given to us and in which you partner with us.  But memories of our time in New England and being with you all persist and are part of our “present.”  It was a blessing to see leaders in action, servants serving so quietly and lovingly in meals and a wedding cake and flowers and cards in connection with our 50th.  It was a blessing to see the musical gifts being shared so freely and all the warm words and hugs!  We have to say and want to say that you again blessed us into embarrassment with your grace and kindness.  It was fun staying in the parsonage and enjoying Steve and Deb’s open hearts and home.  We treasured the time with you.  As we deeply appreciate your prayers as part of your missions' family, so we pray for you all and the ministry of the Word to and through you and out to Carlisle and surrounding towns and to the ends of the earth. With gratitude and love, Keith and Bonnie
