Scottish Heritage Sunday: October 30! Remember to wear your plaid to church! During worship we will enjoy music by “The Kilts of Many Colours” and “New Orleans Strathspey and Reel Society”, along with readings from the earliest days of the Presbyterian Church. We will also be honoring our 50+ year members. The music will continue in a festive reception following 10:30 worship in Frampton Fellowship Hall.
SCAPC Members Departing for Cuba: We ask your prayers for members Martha Beveridge, Mary Monsted, Laura St. Clair and Ann Van Horn as they embark on their mission trip to Cardenas, Cuba October 24-November 1. They will deliver vital supplies to our sister congregation, El Fuerte Presbyterian Church, and perform maintenance on the water treatment system which was installed by our members in 2012 in partnership with Living Waters for the World. Last month, through financial assistance from SCAPC, Gustavo Rodriguez became the first Cuban to attend “Clear Water U” and thus learn to lend professional help in installing and maintaining additional water systems in Cardenas. To read more about Gustavo and SCAPC’s involvement in the Living Waters newsletter, click here. We pray for God’s safekeeping and guidance upon our missionaries, Gustavo, and all our brothers and sisters in Cuba.
Cakes Needed! All are invited to the Wednesday Night Out Cake Walk on November 9 beginning with supper at 6:00 p.m.! If you would like to provide a cake (or even a dozen cupcakes) for this fun event, please contact Pierce at firstname.lastname@example.org. Lupberger Lecture Series: We are honored to welcome Dr. Tyler Mayfield, Professor of Old Testament at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, for a stimulating weekend of faith study. Through a new examination of the book of Genesis, Dr. Mayfield will ask the question, “How can our sacred scriptures help us think about issues such as religious pluralism and chosenness?”
The series will begin with a workshop on Saturday, 8:30 a.m.-noon, in Frampton Fellowship Hall. Dr. Mayfield will then lead a combined adult Sunday School class at 9:30 a.m. in Frampton Fellowship Hall. He will also preach during both the 8:30 and 10:30 services.
All are encouraged to attend! For further details about the 2016 Lupberger Lecture Series, please click here.
