It is Saturday, November 5th, what a beautiful day outside too! At our house we have been outside doing chores and clean up getting ready for winter, how about everyone else? I still see many farmers out in the fields working on harvest, thank you to each and everyone of the farmers that help keep food in our homes!
So what does this Sunday, November 6th hold for us? Our speaker this Sunday is Reverend David Jennys; the following is the bio information that Reverend Jennys provided us:
Rev. David Jennys lives in Francesville, IN with his wife, Susan. They have two children, a son and daughter, and one son-in-law. David is ordained in The United Methodist Church, but has recently been involved in the United Church of Christ with the interim pastoral ministry. David’s wife is also a pastor, serving two rural United Methodist churches. David participates in endurance sports and has run twelve marathons and two ultra-marathons, and most recently he biked a 100 mile “century.” David likes playing strategy games, he and his wife enjoy spending time reading a wide range of topics, traveling, and interesting conversation.
I am sure he will be an interesting speaker, I know I look forward to hearing his sermon entitled “Honor Thy Name”. Divine Worship starts at 10:30 am, with Sunday Classes starting at 9:30 am.
