Announcements and Calendar
Harvest Sunday is this Sunday, October 1. This service will be a traditional West Indian Harvest Sunday service celebrating the bounty that God gave and continues to give us. It is also the time when church community is collecting non-perishable items for the Eastern Farm Workers in an attempt to fill our van with much needed food for migrant farm workers on Long Island. Please, bring as much food as you can. This is the time when the Eastern Farm Workers food pantry is at its lowest. I hope you will come to church, especially on October 1 so that we may celebrate God’s generous blessings and to help ‘the least among us’.
Adopt-A-Family: ECW will be participating in the Adopt-A-Family program sponsored by St. John’s Episcopal Hospital in Far Rockaway. We have committed to giving items needed by five families identified by the hospital as in great need. If you want to participate in this project by providing one or more items (your choice) please let ECW know. Contact Janice Taylor at Church or by phone at 516-569-6250.
At today’s Hospitality/Outreach meeting, we will be discussing ideas for hurricane relief. All parish members are invited to this important meeting after the 10:30 service.
The Rector’s Film Forum is an opportunity for parishioners and friends of the parish to gather on a Saturday at 6:00pm in the Rectory for a light pot luck supper and then watch a movie together. Afterward, those gathered will share their observations and opinions about the film. The film series is chosen by the rector and will vary in topics such as redemption, politics, family, morality and, of course, humor. Our first film forum is October 21. We will be watching Peaceful Warrior. Please see bulletin insert for details.
