§ Last week the church office had some issues with the email software we were using, so we switched over to a new software called MailChimp. This is now the email carrier by which the weekly e-blast and our current 40 Days of Blessing daily reminders will be sent out. We appreciated your patience while we worked through the issue last week. If for some reason, a weekly e-blast does not go out, please refer to our website, www.ecoos.org. The weekly e-blast for Oct. 12 was posted there as is every week’s e-blast.

§ The Diocesan Convention begins this Friday, October 17, with Leadership Day. Registration is open at 1:00 p.m. at Christ Church in Greenville, if you would like to attend.

Our Delegates, Maggie McGill, Barbara Pierce, and Pierre Chalaron, and our Sr. Warden, David Stringer will be attending the Business Day sessions on Saturday, October 18. Our Rector, The Janice Chalaron and her husband, Pierre, will be attending both days. Please keep everyone in prayer during the convention this weekend.

40 Days of Blessing – Stewardship 2015

Monday October 6, 2014

Dear Companions of Christ:

A relationship with God in Christ takes a commitment and a willingness to invite God into our lives.

We seek and find Christ in our worship and our ministries but where can we discover Him in the rest of our week? The Rector and the Vestry invite you to join with them in an amazing adventure to seek God’s blessings every day for 40 days starting October 8, 2014. This “40 Days of Blessing” will be a fresh and easy way to keep the message of God’s love in front of us and it will frame up our 2015 Stewardship Campaign. We are ALL stewards of the generosity of God’s gifts – God has given us a lot to be thankful for. Each day will have a suggestion for a way of deepening our awareness of God’s gifts to each of us.

The Church office will email out the daily suggestions for seeking Christ’s blessings and we hope that you will share the gifts given back to you through email notes to us and on the graffiti scroll set-up in the Parish Hall on Sunday. We hope that these “40 Days of Blessing” will encourage you to share generously with our Church in 2015. At the end of the 40 days, each of us will be given the opportunity to make a pledge to strengthen the mission and ministry of our Church. Pledge cards will be mailed the week of November 3rd.

Join with us on this amazing adventure and let your heart and soul be filled with the blessings of God!

Celebrate Christ, Serve Christ, Share Christ!

Blessings,

David Stringer

Senior Warden
