On All Saints Day, Sunday November 1, 2015 at 5pm the parish choir and friends will offer a special Evensong of Remembrance for All the Saints, particularly those we have mourned this past year. Classic works by Sir John Stainer and Charles Villiers Stanford as well as contemporary composers Robert Lehman and Alfred Fedak will be performed. If you would like a friend or loved one remembered in the service program, please contact the church office before October 26.
October 18 is Celebration Sunday, a day when we celebrate God’s presence in our church and in all of the ministries that you do. Please plan to join us after the 10:30 service next week for the Celebration Sunday Ministry Fair. This is the perfect time to explore HCFM ministries or to try something new!
All parishioners (teens and up) are invited to help shape the future of our church. Throughout the month of October a short survey will be available in the church narthex and office. The results will be summarized, discussed, and shared with the congregation early in 2016. The clergy, vestry and members of the Communications Ministry truly appreciate your thoughtful participation.
The Fellowship Table for snacks after worship needs volunteers for October, November and December. Please sign up on bulletin board in the Narthex just before you leave. Suggestion sheets are on the kitchen counter if you need more information.
November 13 and 14 will be HCFM’s chance to serve our Diocesan Convention in many ways and to enjoy working with fellow parishioners. In order to provide breakfasts, lunches and dinner that weekend, the Hospitality Ministry has identified these volunteer needs. Please contact Kathy Thompson or Mary Boyd Brown SOON to say you’ll help.

WAIT!! It’s too early to put away those saddle shoes. The group of One-ders and NDY’s that gathered at the church for line dancing lessons had so much fun that they’ve decided to do it again. Whether or not you were there the first time, plan to join in for Line Dancing Friday, Oct. 23rd at Holy Cross. 5:30 til 7:00pm. Dress comfortably, bring finger food to share and something non-alcoholic to drink for yourself. Bring friends! We will be reviewing Cupid Shuffle and Electric Slide, and adding on Macarena and perhaps another. Good exercise, much laughter, and socializing too.
The October Social Night Out will be co-hosted by Lu Jones & Julia Cripps and Wil & Amanda Keith. It will take place at the Keith home on October 24th, beginning at 6pm. A Sign Up sheet will be in the narthex the two weeks prior to the event.
