    Hello Everyone,

    I just finished this week's readings. I had to do some catch-up work to get it done. I found this week that I continually fell behind. The readings are perhaps some of the most important in the NT. They are tightly compacted arguments by Paul, especially in both Galatians and Romans. I want to encourage you to persevere, because while they can be frustrating, they are also potentially most rewarding. Hang in there!

    Hi Church,

    Hope you are all doing well.

    I want to remind everyone that our October Quarterly Summit will be held on Sunday October 31 after worship. There are two things that will be preeminent: a preliminary draft of the 2022 budget, the election of the 2022 Board. I hope you will find time to commit to attending this important meeting.

    The NAACP will be holding its Freedom Fund Banquet on Sunday, November 7. This is the main fundraiser for the NAACP. It is also the event where the winners of the following awards are announced: Minority Student of the Year Award, Thomas Determan SCOPE Award, and The Ruby Sutton Award. Contact Ernestine Moss for more information, or go to http://www.dubuquenaacp.com/freedomfundbanquet.

    This week we continue in 1 John with the theme of love for our brothers and sisters and loves importance as a marker of our relationship with God. The text is 1 John 3:11-4:6.

    There is Sunday School at 9:00 a.m. for both adults and children.
