WE WILL SAY A SPECIAL PRAYER FOR DISCERNMENT during the Prayers of the People in the Sunday service. We will pray for God to show us what he wants us to do and be in the Clinton/Laurens County community. Please pray for discernment in your daily prayers as well.
SINGING ROOSTER FAIR-TRADE COFFEE FROM HAITI is available through the church as a way of supporting our diocesan mission in Cange. An order sheet is placed in the church and in the parish hall. Buy some for yourself—and some to give as Christmas gifts! All proceeds go to the farmers who grow the coffee in Haiti.
GLUTEN-FREE COMMUNION WAFERS are always available upon request. Let Fr. Morgan know before the service or at the communion rail.
A PERSONAL NOTE FROM HAROLD AND ELIZABETH MORGAN:
We are finally moved out of our house in Clinton and into our new house in Bostic, NC—and also into the rectory in Newberry, where we will be staying most of the time for the near future. I will be commuting to All Saints’ until my last day on December 31, 2016.
We are still trying to make our way around boxes and stray furniture in both houses, and it will take a while for us to get settled in. My cell phone remains the same: 864-938-6693. Our mailing address is now: 1207 Calhoun St., Newberry, SC 29108.
Thanks to all of you for your prayers and patience during this time of transition for us.
