The word for October 2022, is CALL
Reading passages from Luke during worship, we are reminded of Jesus’ call to discipleship. God is always calling us – to prayer, to service, to live out our love of God. May our hearts be open to hearing God’s invitation to celebrate
the risen Lord every day of our lives. May those moments – and an awareness of God’s presence and blessing – inspire us to deeper faith, the kind that can carry us through all of the seasons of life.
“As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.” [Colossians 2:6-7]

So much to celebrate!
