Pastor Ed

Dear Members, Friends, and Guests:

Lely welcomed four new members to include; Treva Larson, Jackie Snyder, Dayle DeAngelo, and Aimee Trochessett.

Please take time to introduce yourself to Lely’s newest member and be sure to always sit with a person you need to know better during fellowship following worship!

During Sunday’s Minute for Mission Scott Anderson delivered a powerful and inspiring message regarding foster care for children! I was moved by his words as well as by him sharing the he and his wife adopted four children!! That is putting faith into action!!!

Melana Scruggs will fill the pulpit on Sunday, September 24. She will kick off the sermon series, “How to be the Best Grandparents Ever!” While the sermon series may appear to focus on biological grandparents, know that each of us play a surrogate role for developing children in the life of the church and the community!

Following the 9:00 and 10:30 am worship services, Bette Decoteau will lead a Town Hall Meeting in Kemp Hall! She will discuss the role of church membership and a glimpse into the growth taking place at Lely!!

This past year Bette Decoteau made an incredible trip to Europe and visited old haunts and made amazing new friends! In gratitude of her return, Bette is throwing an Oktoberfest in Kemp Hall on Saturday, September 30 beginning at 5:00 pm! There will be bratts…German Desserst, refreshments, and pics of her trip shifting in the background! To Help With Planning Click Here to Let Her Know You Plan to Attend

World Communion Sunday will be observed on Sunday, October 1 at the 9:00 and 10:30 am services of worship!

Blessing of the Animals will be held later that day, and it’s always a joy to welcome the four legged members of the families to Lely’s campus for this special service!

Lely’s Music Team returns for worship on Sunday, October 15 and Choir Rehearsal begins Thursday, October 19 at 4:00 pm!!! Get your voices ready!!

As an additional note, the Session has called for a Special Congregational Meeting on Sunday, November 12 at 10:00 a.m. for the purpose of electing church officers.
