November 10 Celebration Schedule

Honoring Former Leaders/Open House and Ice Cream Social

Two messages that came through loud and clear at the “Appreciating Our Anniversary” planning session were that we should honor our former leaders, and also include the neighbors in our celebration. Sunday, November 10, is the day we do both!

The worship service will feature special music, including but not limited to the ringing of the Memorial Carillon and the debut performance by our new handbell choir. Former pastors who are able to attend will take part in the worship service, and they and their wives will be available after worship is over so that we may greet them and thank them for their service at First Presbyterian. The Post-its honoring others who have acted as spiritual mentors will also be on display.

The meet-and-greet will take place in the church courtyard, at a free ice cream social to which we’re inviting the neighbors. We are using press releases, direct mail, and door hangers to ask as many as possible to join us. The Sanctuary will remain open for those who would like to see it, and entertainment will be provided by four members of The Sun City Stomperz, a “traditional Dixieland jazz band.” Shade and seating will be available and a great time should be had by all.

We hope to see you on Sunday!
