So, are we done with those glorious Oct days of unseasonable warmth? How can we complain after such gorgeous color so far into fall. Believe it or not, I had a second crop of tomatoes off one of my potted plants – amazing because we live in the woods and have limited sunlight!
Such fun to see folks at the turkey dinner at the Grange on Saturday night. As usual, a wonderful feast! I know it is hard work ahead of time, in the kitchen and out with many attentive servers scurrying around, but I hope you know it is greatly appreciated.
You can still enjoy a turkey dinner with all the trimmings at the Reach Out Luncheon downstairs in the church Community Room at 11:30 on Thursday, 11/16. This marvelous meal is jointly sponsored by Tyson Ladies Aid and Tyson Church. All are welcome!
The change in the weather does signal the desire and the need to think about Christmas. We had our Church Council meeting today after Worship to make our plans, so I thought I would share them with you. Advent begins 12/3, when we will have special readings and start lighting our Advent candles. That evening will be our Service of Remembrance at 5:00 PM, when we will light individual candles for those we are missing during this Holiday season. Our Annual Community Candlelight Service will be at 7:00 PM on 12/17. All are invited and encouraged to stay for our cookie sharing fellowship time downstairs afterward! On 12/24 in the morning, Janice Chilek will be with us, as we sing Christmas carols & reflect on how Christ has been reborn in our hearts this year. We do not have a Christmas Eve service, but many of us enjoy visiting other churches for their celebrations.
