1. Baptism and Communion and Thanksgiving
Join us live online or on campus this Sunday as we celebrate the baptism of a new believer and receive communion together.
Communion will be self-contained on campus, and if you’re joining us online, have some crackers or bread handy along with some water or juice.
Since Thanksgiving is next week, I want you to be thinking of multiple ways you can express gratitude to God even with all we’ve walked through this year.
2. Deermeadows, 2021, and $$$
Last Sunday, Deermeadows affirmed the 2021 Financial Ministry Plan (church budget). It represents a modest 2% increase. Keep in mind the budget was cut a full 10% from 2019 to 2020.
Deermeadows recognizes the economic uncertainty many households are facing. Therefore, the big ask this year is for each of us to commit with a pledge to give something to the financial health of the church on a regular basis throughout the next year.
Several of you have told us pledging an amount is very helpful for you. We welcome that. In fact, it’s helpful for the decisions we make.
Will you CLICK HERE to pledge your commitment to give something regularly or a specific amount for the upcoming year? Thank you!
3. On-Campus Attendance
Recently we’ve experienced some spikes in on-campus worship attendance. We’re glad you’re here and desire to help Sundays be a meaningful, safe experience. To that end, we’re beginning to host an option in Founder’s Hall to accommodate more people.
What’s happening in the sanctuary is being streamed in, and a leader will be there to guide us in the music and in prayer.
Thanks to the many of you who are volunteering to begin worship there so others, especially guests, can worship in the sanctuary.
