President of the Church Council

Closing of Another Calendar

        There are only five more church services left in this church year. Two of which are the last of the Pentecost season. There are 23 Pentecost Sundays in a year and only two are left. The new 2021-2022 season starts on November 28 with Advent. Of course, you know what that means? Wednesday Advent services and potlucks.

          We are also getting ready for the Voters meeting in November. This time of year, is always full of meetings and budget talks. Along with the election of all the council and Elder/Deaconess positions we are also looking for more people to step up and help with the Ushering and Alter guild. This is the time of year all of us need to look inside of ourselves and say, “WHAT CAN I DO FOR JESUS AND FOR THE CHURCH”? 

Also in November: We here in Fallon know it as NAS Fallon, but if you are in the Navy, you would know it as “The Base”. We as a community have a large military influence here in Churchill County. In November we have a day set aside when we honor and say thank you to our men and women in uniform. November 11 use to be called Armistice Day. This was a day to remember the end of World War I. There was eleven million military and some seven million civilians who lost their lives in that conflict. Today we refer to this holiday as Veterans Day. If you see a Veteran or military person thank them for our freedoms.

John 15:13  (Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.)
AND – Happy Thanksgiving to you all!  I thank God every day for our Church Family! 

May the cooler days of Autumn give relief from the heat and a smile as our Christmas season is near.

THE PRAYER: Heavenly Father, give us voices that by your words we may find those that need the light of Jesus in their lives. 

In Jesus' Name. Amen.
DeAl Dankers
