                           AFFIRMATIONS OF FAITH

The Apostles' Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth;

And in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord;
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;*
the third day he rose from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic** church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.

The Nicene Creed

We believe in one God,
The Father, the Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
True God from True God,
begotten, not made,
of one being with the Father;
through Him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation

He came down from heaven,
was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary
and became truly human.
For our sake He was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
He suffered death and was buried.
On the third day He rose again
in accordance with the scriptures;
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead,
and His kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of Life,
who proceeds from the Father,
who with the Father and the Son
is worshiped and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church.
We acknowledge one baptism
for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen

OCC items to collect

It is that time of year again for us to start collecting items for our November Packing Party. We are hoping to pack 260 shoe boxes this year.

Items this month are:

Non-violent coloring books & stuffed animals

both of these can be found in dollar stores. Also keep an eye out for any school supplies that might be on sale. We will be looking to collect them in the months to come. Items can be placed in the box outside the sanctuary.

Thank you so much for your support of this children’s Evangelical ministry!

FELLOWSHIP WITH PASTOR NANCY

Do you enjoy coffee, or tea, hot chocolate or a fruit smoothie? How about friend-ly conversation; does that boost your spirit? If so, I invite you to join me for a beverage and a time of fellowship at Sozo Coffee Roasting on Wednesday mornings. I will arrive at Sozo’s at 8:00am and will stay until 9:30am, or as long as someone wants to chat.
Our conversation can just be about life in general, it can involve our relationship with Jesus and/or the Bible, we can discuss joys, cares, whatever you like.
I don’t need to know in advance if you will be joining me. I will be there reading or preparing my sermon, but I do hope someone will show up once in a while.
Sozo’s is located on North M66 (576 North State Road).
Pastor Nancy
