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 have a buyer for our house in Clinton and are buying a house in Bostic, NC, in Rutherford County. Both closings will be on September 20. In the meantime, we are packing everything for the move. We will also maintain a residence and mailing address at the rectory next to Saint Luke’s in Newberry, and I will commute to Clinton until my retirement on December 31. Our phone numbers will remain the same.
Bostic is located in a scenic area called Golden Valley that is approximately equidistant from Greenville, Hendersonville, Brevard, Ashville, and Hickory. It’s very close to Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, Rutherfordton, and Shelby. Our new house is a modern log cabin home built in 2007, in a gated community of similar log homes called South Mountain Peaks. This is an appropriate moniker, as our house is nestled among the ridges of the South Mountain range.
I will continue to keep office hours (as I am able), take care of administrative tasks, lead worship, and provide pastoral oversight. While I am glad to be moving toward retirement, it will be difficult to leave our home and neighbors in Clinton—and all of you! It has been a pleasure to live here and an honor to be your rector for the past 10 years.
Please keep us in your prayers as we make this move!
