Hi Church!
Another beautiful Fall day, I hope you can enjoy it!
 
Tonight at 6:30 is Godly Play, which is geared for children 5-12 years of age. If you have children who have not attended in the past it is recommended that you contact Christine Quintana prior to their attending at 563-583-4623.
 
On Sunday our focus text for the day is found in the Gospel of Luke, chapter 18, verses 1-8. Jesus proclaims that this little parable is about persistence in prayer and not losing heart. Prayer assists us in keeping our hearts where they need to be. We will further unfold this text in worship on Sunday.
 
I want to remind you that prior to worship there are some great opportunities for both children and adults in discipleship classes. Yes, 9:00 am can seem early, but it is worth the investment.
 
I hope to see everyone on Sunday. God is with you through all of your day.
Sincerely,
 
Rev. Timothy Bees

Email from the pastor - Sunday, October 13
Hi Church!
Claudette and I returned from El Paso on Monday evening. We had a wonderful time with old friends and old surroundings. The weather was averaging 84 during the day, so coming into Dubuque on Monday evening constituted a weather shock.
 
Before I get to Sunday, I want to mention two events that will occur yet this week:
1. Movie night on Friday at 6:30 p.m. We are showing "Friendly Persuasion" a civil war film that deals with how a family of Quakers live while being surrounded by war. One of the sons wants to enlist even though it would be against their pacifist groundings. The movie has some serious moments as well as some surprisingly humorous ones as well.
 
2. On Saturday there is going to be an OCC work day. The event runs from 1-4 p.m. and will have snacks and drinks. There will be various chores, some of which will be the assembly of school supplies, hygiene kits, and accessories for older girls. God has been good and the congregation has been generous as we have a garage that is overflowing with donations. Come and have fun as we work for collection week in November.
 
This Sunday we will be considering the importance of gratefulness. The story of the ten lepers in Luke 17:11-19 tells us something about our heart attitudes toward Jesus and all that he has done and provided. I hope you can join us this Sunday, help out on Saturday, and be entertained on Friday.
Blessings!
