    October 5, 2014 Thank you, brothers and sisters in Christ, for your caring concerns, cards, meals, visits and especially your prayers for God’s blessings, strength, comfort and healing powers during my recent illness. Our prayers were answered. It is now time for healing and thanksgiving. Again, thank you for your divine help. God bless you all. Yours in Christ ~  Norris Miertschin October is Pastor Appreciation Month Memorial has been blessed with faithful Pastors and Vicars through its history. On October 12 th , between services, the Elders and Leadership Team will host a cake and punch reception for our pastoral staff and we would love to see everyone there. For those who wish, there will be  baskets available to leave cards and well-wishes. Volunteer Opportunity The Society of St. Stephens at the Katy Methodist Church is in need of a volunteer driver for delivery meals to shut-ins on every other Thursday. This is done at about 10:30 am. Several of our members are already involved in this program. Please contact Marie Lau 281-578-0964 for further details.  Rice Harvest Festival Each year on the second weekend in October the City of Katy hosts the Rice Harvest Festival. Our church has a prime location in the center of the festival and as such, we open our Welcome Center bathrooms, a place to cool down, and a place to pray. We also host a Children's Carnival where the proceeds are split between missions and youth activities. To do this we need many volunteers and it is a great opportunity to serve together as a family. Volunteer times are n two hour blocks. 8am-5pm Saturday and 11am-5pm Sunday. Volunteer roles include monitoring the Welcome Center and directing people to bathrooms as well as keeping them clean and stocked, praying for individuals, or working the carnival stations. Carnival stations include: snow cones, dunk booth, lollipop tree, fishing game, ring toss, and bounce house. If you are interested in volunteering, contact Linda Elmore  (lelmore@acosta.com; 281.728.1322) or Nathan Engman (nathan@mlckaty.com; 281.391.0171) and check out the sign-up sheets in the Welcome Center.  HELPERS NEEDED This year our Children's Christmas program will be Wednesday December 17 th  at 7 pm. April Ramsey is in need of extra helpers to ensure the program goes smoothly. Parents who are willing to help plan and distribute costumes on rehearsal days and during the actual program as well as helpers to run lines, set the stage and to simply help cue kids and sit with them in pews while they wait for their turns are needed. If this sounds like something you are interested in, please email April. Dress rehearsal will most likely be Saturday December 6 th  at 10am. THE WISHING TREE IS COMING! For many years, Memorial Lutheran Church members have supported a Wishing Tree during the holiday season. Congregation members nominate families/individuals who could use some help with presents/food. They can be congregation members, coworkers, relatives, neighbors, friends, etc. It's hard to believe it's time for nominations again!! If you know of someone we could bless this upcoming Christmas season with presents/food, please contact Pastor Davis, Vicar Mike, or Deb Plautz (281-395-4681/bobplautz1@aol.com) by Sunday, October.19. Other things congregation members can do NOW to help make the Wishing Tree successful: --bring your unused coupons from Sunday's paper and put them in the box by the elevator. Deb Plautz will use them to  buy food for the families. --ask for paper when you grocery shop and put the bags in the box by the elevator. SHE NEEDS AT LEAST 200 BAGS FOR THE FOOD GIVEN OUT. SUNDAY SCHOOL THIS WEEK This week our kids will continue looking into the book of Genesis as they explore the story of God's covenant with Abraham. Kid's should  bring Bibles with them to class as well as their passports. A new memory verse this week will be from Genesis 17:7.    I will establish my covenant as an everlasting covenant between me and you and  your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you.   We will also continue memorizing the Apostle's Creed and the Lord's Prayer. Sunday School is 9:30-10:30 upstairs in the Loomis Center for pre-k- 5th grade. Nursery age kids (2 and under) meet in the Nursery in the Welcome Center. TRUNK OR TREAT  –   Year 3! Once again we ’ll  be gathering in Brookshire Brothers ’ parking lot from 6 -8 pm. We love this opportunity to be visible in our community and share Jesus ’  love for all. Last year over 100 families came by - many of them unchurched. We hope you can join us again this year (or make it your first year!). All you need to do is park your car by our area and bring some treats to share. We ’ ll also have some carnival-style games as families walk through. Come ready to spread the love of Jesus and shine bright for Him!!. Sign-up sheets are in the Welcome Center. Christ Clinic Item of the Month Kleenex
