WOW! I am about ready for this clean-up and repair phase of Harvey to be completed! Some of you are still trying to find a clean, safe, dry place to lay your head at night and our prayers continue to be with you. At the parsonage, work is steady, but not nearly fast enough. We are indeed blessed to have a contractor friend who immediately sent a skilled worker to come and stay with us until the task is complete. We have had insurance adjustors come and go and are still awaiting their decision. But, God has shown Himself to be very faithful!

AND, we wish to invite all those who have helped with the Harvey relief to come for a fellowship meal on Sunday, October 22 at 6:00 p.m. We will be turning our Chapel into a dining hall and trust you will come. We especially want our first responders to come and those who have prepared community meals. We want to say “Thanks” for what you have done for our community! The meal is planned to be one to be remembered, so please set aside a couple of hours and come so we can say thanks together!

Remember, our annual Thanksgiving Community Service will be hosted by the Catholic Church this year. It will be on November 12 at 6:00 p.m. Again, we will receive a special offering to help cover the cost of our Thanksgiving and Christmas food baskets. We believe there will be many more requests than in past years because I know we have more hurting people as a result of the hurricane. There will be a fellowship meal to follow.

Those in need of a Thanksgiving food basket should contact me by phone between November 5 and November 15. We will be distributing the baskets on November 21. My contact number is 361/218-6693. Please help us find the neediest among us and make sure we feed “need” and not “greed”.

Pastor Joane has been quite busy recently. She was the featured Evangelist at First Assembly in Cuero during the first days of October, and now she is in Haiti on a mission’s trip. She will be home in time for October 22 Appreciation Fellowship Meal. Come, for I am sure she will be sharing informally, if not formally, her experiences in Haiti.

The Chapel continues passing out cleaning supplies for those still in the process. We still have things for the babies needs and, as always, emergency food supplies. We are continuing to have donations arrive from all over the nation, and we sincerely appreciate everyone who has contributed and those who are continuing to help. Recently we received supplies from the kids at a Casa Grande, Arizona school. We are humbled by all the help we have received and will continue to receive all donations, because we still truly do not know what our community is going to need.

Special thanks to Hermano Jesse who has filled the pulpit many times for us recently. He continues leading our Spanish Services each Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. Everyone is welcome to come and enjoy this service which is totally in Spanish.

Pastor Jesse has also just begun to teach from the Book of Romans each Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. Come, enjoy a cup of coffee with us as we study God’s Word together.

Fisherman’s Chapel is an interdenominational congregation, which only means that everyone is welcomed. We offer Bible Study for all ages at 10:00 a.m. We celebrate in praise at 11:00 a.m. and the children have a special service designed just for them. And, we meet each Sunday at 6:00 p.m. and Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. to enjoy the fellowship of each other and glean knowledge about God from His Word. Everyone will find a warm welcome here and all are urged to, “Come, grow with us!”
