An Open Invitation to our Pumpkin Party

In case you weren't aware, we Friesens are throwing a party on Friday, November 2nd! But this is not just any party: we are having a Pumpkin Party, to celebrate the most beloved squash of the season. Any and all are invited. A huge pot of pumpkin soup will be bubbling away for your enjoyment. We humbly request everyone bring something to celebrate the pumpkin, be it sweet, savoury, or alcoholic - but to encourage creativity (and quell the inevitable battles over whose grandmother's recipe is best), pies are strictly forbidden. Tarts, I suppose, are pushing it. Custard and curry alike are welcome.

Come any time after seven. Please also bring your own spoon ... maybe even your own bowl if you remember. (Sadly, I'm not kidding. I'm pretty sure all the Friesen spoons at some point undergo a metamorphosis and become forks.) The address is in the directory. We may have a weird parking situation, in which case parking instructions will be relayed, either here in advance or via text/frantic window gesturing upon arrival. Hopefully not the latter.

Warm regards,
Andrew and Erin

PS - sorry to those whose land-lines we texted. I know that's annoying.

Sunday School & Other Updates!

October 2012 will be another busy month!

CHURCH SCHOOL will begin this coming Sunday Oct. 7th in the hall during Matins-- please arrive on time at 9:30 AM!

For more information please contact Zane G -- minimum age was announced, but I forget what it was! But please note that this is not meant as a babysitting service. This will be an experiment and will be adapted as it goes along.

ALSO this coming Sunday Oct. 7th:  Please bring your harvest plenty for blessing (bring in the morning or to vespers the night before) to beautify the church. The harvest will be blessed after liturgy.

and some other important items: 

  • Reminder of CHURCH CLEANUP at 10 AM Saturday Oct. 13th  mostly outdoor work, see Lora-Lynne or Sid
  • DIAKONIA is now collecting cold weather clothing to help street-dwellers-- I believe they said they have enough socks at the moment, but sweaters and scarves, perhaps mitts and gloves will be welcomed
  • The Fall 2012 PARISH DIRECTORY is available in the narthex-- thank you Kai for getting this done.
