This Sunday in worship we celebrate the harvest and give thanks to God for the abundance of blessing we enjoy, dedicating pledges to the financial support of our church for the coming year, 2017. If you haven’t already sent in your pledge, I encourage you to bring it with you this Sunday so that your commitment can be included in our prayers of thanksgiving and consecration.
The 9:30 service will be really fun this Sunday, with a special guest, Chris Siebold, joining our chancel choir and Dennis Beiermann, music director, to lead us in original arrangements of favorite seasonal hymns. For the last several years, Chris was house guitarist for A Prairie Home Companion, and regular accompanist for Garrison Keillor. He continues as a professional touring musician, and has worked with a variety of popular artists and bands, including Brad Paisley, Chris Thile, Nickle Creek, and Bela Fleck of the Flecktones. From 2011-2015, he was music director for Willow Creek, Chicago.
