Thursday Announcements-From the Vestry
August 4, 2022
1). Canon Easton will be coming to St. Francis for our service on August 21st. On this date the vestry will recognize Father Bob and Mother Karen for all their work in keeping St. Francis alive and well and the search committee will be recognized for their work. Please put this date on your calendar as we will celebrate with cake and fruit after the 9:00 am service. What a great way to celebrate with all our church family.
2). Please continue to offer prayers for our new rector as she prepares to make the move from South Dakota to the GOOD LIFE of Nebraska, and our St. Francis parish.
Lord, please encourage Rev. Erin Rath by the power of your Holy Spirit. Let her soul be refreshed with the love of Christ. Let her have faith for the future. Help her to keep pressing forward even when the way is not so clearly defined. Let her be refreshed by the fact that your grace is sufficient for her. In Christ’s name we pray. AMEN
3). 100 years of services at our church, St. Francis, will be celebrated later this year. You can look forward to information and photos being shared in the coming months. December 24, 1922, was the first church service at our current location. The church has lots of memories to share!!!
4) Office Hours – Ann will be in the office between 9:00AM and 1:00PM on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Father Bob will be in the office on Wednesday, August 10 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. The office phone will be manned outside of these hours when the office is closed.
5) Some levity to share (because who couldn't use a good laugh these days?):
Three friends from the local congregation were asked, "When you're in your casket, and friends and congregation members are mourning over you, what would you like them to say?
Artie said, " I would like them to say I was a wonderful husband, a fine spiritual leader, and a great family man."
Merle said: "I would like them to say I was a wonderful teacher and servant of God who made a huge difference in people’s lives."
Don said, "I'd like them to say, 'Look! He's moving!'"
