Sermon: Wednesday November 22, 2017 - Thanksgiving Eve


View the bulletin for Wednesday November 22, 2017

The Holy Gospel according to St. Luke, the seventeenth chapter.
On the way to Jerusalem [Jesus] was passing along between Samaria and Galilee. And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance and lifted up their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” When he saw them he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went they were cleansed. Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan. Then Jesus answered, “Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?” And he said to him, “Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well.”

Help Needed with Children’s Outreach Angel Tree program


Hello! I am Barb Oechslein and I am on the Bridgeville Area Food Bank Volunteer Committee and coordinator for the Children’s Outreach Angel Tree program. Our committee consists of two people and we are looking to find a few one time volunteers to help organize the gifts received from this year’s program.

I need one person prior to Wednesday, December 13 to numerically organize the gifts brought to Zion and make sure all gifts have been received. Call to remind anyone who has not returned gift by Wednesday, December 13.

I am also in need of two or three volunteers on Thursday, December 14 to help transport the gifts to Bethany Presbyterian Church and organize all gifts received from the area churches. This will be done starting at 12:30 and should be finished before 3:00. If you can only help transport or only help organize any time would be appreciated.

Please contact Barb Oechslein,
before Wednesday, December 13 if you can help.
