THURSDAY NOTES – 10/12/2017

Members of Church of Our Saviour,
The time is quickly approaching when we will have our new Priest!  Jacob and his wife Gina are in the process of preparing to move to our great community.  His first Sunday with us will be on Sunday, October 29th.  Father Jacob will be coming to us from the Dallas area, where he has been a Curate at the Church of St. David of Wales.  He is a graduate of Nashotah House Theological Seminary.  He and his wife are wonderful people, and I hope that you all can be in attendance to meet Jacob and Gina.  I would personally like to thank you all for being supportive and present during this time of transition.  The Vestry has been working very hard over the past few months to ensure our transition was conducted smoothly and quickly.  If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to any of your vestry members or Suzy.  I very much look forward to our future together as we welcome Father Jacob and his wife Gina! 
Morning prayer will be conducted on the 15th and 22nd.  This Sunday, October 12th will be Vestry.  There will be a children’s sermon Sunday at the 10:30 service. 

In Christ,
Paul Richaud
Senior Warden 

NICEST PLACE IN AMERICA:  Our city of Gallatin has won the title of The Nicest Place in America. in a Readers Digest contest Gallatin will be featured on the cover of the November issue of the Readers Digest. Check it out
A teacher was testing the children in her Sunday school class to see if they understood the concept of getting to heaven.   She asked them, "If I sold my house and my car, had a big garage sale and gave all my money to the church, would that get me into Heaven?"  "NO!" the children answered.  "If I cleaned the church every day, mowed the yard, and kept everything neat and tidy, would that get me into Heaven?"  Again, the answer was, "NO!"  Now she was smiling. Hey, they're getting it, she thought! "Well, then, if I was kind to animals and gave candy to all the children, and loved my husband, would that get me into Heaven?" she asked.   Again, they all answered, "NO!"  She was just bursting with pride for them. "Well," she continued, "then how can I get into Heaven?"  A five-year-old boy shouted out, "YOU GOTTA BE DEAD." ALTAR FLOWER SIGN UP SHEET!!!  There are still openings on the sign-up sheet added to the bulletin board in the Parish Hall.  Please sign up for your flowers in honor of, memory of, thanksgiving for, etc. 
FOOD and FELLOWSHIP (9:30-10:30AM):  Please sign up to provide food for CoOS coffee hour between the services on Sunday mornings.  It doesn’t have to be elaborate or even homemade, the point is to give people a little something to have with their coffee so they will stick around for fellowship and conversation.  Sign-up sheet available in Parish Hall
