Harvest Festival and Homecoming Weekend Worship
The Harvest Festival and Homecoming is this weekend, October 20. We actually have 4 worship opportunities for you. We encourage you to plan to gather with God’s people for worship. You are especially invited to attend one of the alternative time services in the event that your volunteering for the Harvest Festival and Homecoming would conflict with your participation in the 9:30 a.m. service. Planning ahead is a good thing.
Here are times and locations of the four services:
Saturday at 6:00 p.m. at MLLC
Sunday at ~7:00/7:15 a.m. at the Carmine Hall – lower level by kitchen
Sunday at 8:00 a.m. at Waldeck Evangelical Lutheran Church – our partner church,
The Waldeck Church is located at 6915 Waldeck Church Lane, about 6.5 miles south of Ledbetter at the intersection of FM 2145 and FM 1291
Sunday at 9:30 a.m. at the Carmine Hall – upper level – featuring Polka style worship songs
All of these services listed above will offer Holy Communion.
Note that there will be no 10:00 a.m. service at the church this Sunday (October 20). We will resume our normal schedule on the weekend of October 26-27.
