THIS WEEK AT SYLVAN ABBEY: This Sunday the message is about Gratitude. We will explore the passage from Mark 12: 28-34 about loving God with our heart, soul, strength, and mind-yes-in that order. Come worship at 11:00 am and see what it is like to have a Heart of Gratitude. Adult Sunday school will start a new series the "Christmas Experience" from Kyle Idleman. This is a great series of 6 lessons on the events leading up to and through the birth of Christ. Remember on December 6, we will have our "Brunch with Santa." There will be crafts for kids, breakfast, Santa, and the Christmas story and maybe some other surprises. There is no charge and we look forward to seeing a house full of children and parents. Come and enjoy Sunday school for youth and adults and worship with us. We are looking forward to seeing friends and meeting new people each week.

THIS WEEK AT SYLVAN ABBEY: We are on to a new topic this week as we have finished the 7 Deadly Sins. I hope everyone was able to see the deadly sins impact and how much greater they really are than maybe what we thought they were before looking at them in some depth. This week we will focus on Worship and the ideas of worship, next week Gratitude, and on Nov. 23 we look at Joy, then we we start our Advent series of messages. Come and enjoy our traditional worship and remember Sunday school for youth and adults prior to worship. Tomorrow, Nov. 8 is our Annual Rummage Sale starting at 8:00 am and on December 6 we will have Brunch with Santa. Get the word out on these great events and bring your children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. It will be fun and food will be provided at the brunch. I look forward to seeing you at Worship service and come with an open heart and mind to the love and passion of a Savior that loves you and is waiting for you with open arms.
