October Missions Project: Dismantling the Doctrine of Discovery


October 29 is Music Sunday and will focus on “Singing Through Our Burdens.”   We will reflect on the healing, strengthening, and encouraging power of music in times of trouble and suffering.  If you would like to contribute in any of the following ways, please let Justin or Chris know no later than TODAY, Oct. 22:

Hundred word stories.  Please consider submitting a brief written story, 100 words or less, describing how music has helped you or others bear burdens, endure sorrow, or otherwise cope with hardship.  The story can be personal, but need not be.  The stories will be read during the Music Sunday service.

Special music.  As always, we invite and encourage contributions of special music.

Song requests.  We invite suggestions of music for congregational singing—especially music dealing with burdens, sorrow, struggle, hope, or encouragement.  We will try to work in as many requests as possible.  If we receive many requests, preference will be given to songs that best fit the theme of the service.

Visual art.  We invite you to share a piece of artwork or some other visual feature that would help the congregation reflect on the subject of the service.

Adriel will be working on the Sycamore home on our campus to start some much-needed upgrades and are looking for some help with pulling up old carpet, and getting it ready to paint and install new carpeting. We have designated November 8th and 9th at 6pm and November 11th at 9am. If you are interested please RSVP to Wayne Yoder at wyoder@thomasmarker.com.
