It seems that more Men can attend the retreat at Davis Mountain State Park on the 3rd through 5th of October than the September date published earlier so we’ll go with it. If you are thinking of coming and staying at Indian Lodge in the park (rather than in a tent or RV), it would be good to get that information to Greg Clark who is coordinating our plans. More information can also be found in the packets on the table as you enter church. This is a wonderful opportunity to invite friends who would enjoy a relaxing weekend away and the opportunity to be encouraged in their faith.
You are also cordially invited to a Men’s Luncheon tomorrow (Tuesday at 11:45am) at the Jubilee Center. The twice monthly lunches are attended by several of the men from All Saints as well as men from other congregations around Midland. The purpose is to build friendships and enjoy some great West Texas cooking. The menu includes fajitas (beef-pork-chicken) with all the fixin’s, homemade beans and dessert. Jubilee Center is located at 3311 Andrews Highway, just west of the church.
Talk has also begun concerning a women’s retreat in January or February. See Melissa McCarty, Teresa Sheppard or Marianne Finnie to join in the planning.
Scripture of the Week: “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we looked upon and have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life— 2 the life was made manifest, and we have seen it, and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was made manifest to us— 3 that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. 4 And we are writing these things so that ourjoy may be complete.” 1st John 1:1-4
