Job and Jacob both had visions for what they wanted their lives to be and were led in faith to lives beyond their imagination.
This week Sunday, October 18, at Guilford Community Church, United Church of Christ, the music, children's story and sermon will all celebrate the vision God has for all of us and, with it, our part in bringing that vision to fruition. The congregation will welcome new members: Evan Cross, Alice Maes, Perrin Scott, Annette Spaulding and Tom Yahner along with their children and grandchildren.
Rev. Lise Sparrow will preach on "Innocence" and our unknowing before God's great mercy. Peter Amidon will lead the choir in two anthems: ""Be Thou My Vision" and "Daniels", a shape-note piece. Tony and Margaret Dale Barrand and Peter and Mary Alice Amidon will open the service with "I Come Like a Beggar", a traditional hymn by Sydney Carter. The Sunday School will continue learning music of the season, this week with with Mary Alice Amidon and the Confirmation Class and Interfaith Youth groupswill begin preparing for service work in the months ahead. Nursery care is provided.
