“The Celebration of Saints”

Holy Communion

Join us on Sunday as we remember the saints from the past who made a lasting impression on our lives and give thanks for the saints who surround us today! Our monthly celebration of the Lord’s Supper was moved to this Sunday since Kahu Akana was on study leave last week.

LECTIONARY READINGS (Old & New Testament Readings for the Week)  Each week, Christians throughout the world read biblical passages from the Revised Common Lectionary, including the Old Testament, Psalms, New Testament, and Gospels. After three years, a good portion of the Bible is included and the cycle begins again. RCL passages are often read in church worship services, and Kahu Akana usually includes at least one of them on the following Sunday. This week’s readings are Haggai 1:15-2:9; Psalm 145:1-21 or Psalm 98 or Psalm 17:1-9; ; Job 19:23-28; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-17; Luke 20:27-38;

PARKING NOTES  Thanks to all who are able and have been making parking more manageable on Sunday mornings! Those who have been carpooling or parking at the school and on Waikomo Road have made a big difference in making room for the elderly, our visitors, and those who have trouble walking.

Coming up….

CHURCH OFFICE CLOSED  November 11 in observance of Veterans Day.
