Sunday School continues this Sunday

Our Sunday School theme this year is People of Faith - learning that it's not always easy, but good things come when you hold true to your faith. This Sunday Suzanne will help students learn about Ruth.

Our "Children and Worship" approach enables children to experience and not just learn about God, to discover the quiet place within themselves, to listen and to talk with God, and how to bring their experiences into dialogue with God in the biblical stories.

Twenty-Third Sunday after Pentecost

and Sunday School

"Then, as now, most people prayed like they brushed their teeth--once in the morning and once at night, as part of their spiritual hygiene program. [The widow in Jesus' parable] ...was willing to say what she wanted--out loud, day and night, over and over--whether she got it or not, because saying it was how she remembered who she was.
"Trust the process [of prayer], regardless of what comes of it, because the process itself gives you life. The process keeps you engaged with what matters most to you, so you do not lose heart. Prayer keeps our hearts chasing after God's heart. It's how we bother God, and it's how God bothers us back. There's nothing that works any better than that" ().
-Barbara Brown Taylor, "Bothering God" in Home by Another Way

CROP Walk Sunday Oct 23rd

The Lebanon Reformed Church will be sponsoring the C.R.O.P. walk this year! The event will take place today, October 23 at 1:00 PM. As you know this is a great event and one of the many tangible ways our congregation can put faith into action in the fight against hunger locally and around the world.

The walk will be 4.5 miles in length beginning at Fox Lumber in Clinton with the first leg of the walk down the beautiful Landsdown Trail. The route then follows the roads looping back to town. The route is flat, picturesque, easy on the feet, and can accommodate any type of walker or runner! (See attached copy of the route.)

And of course, aside from enjoying some great fellowship on a beautiful fall afternoon, the monies raised by every step you take will go to help insure sustainable access to proper, nutritious food, supporting more than 2,200 local hunger-fighting groups across the US.

There are many ways to donate to CROP. Donation/registration can be done online or in person at the beginning of the walk.

To register go to

On-site registration begins at 12:45 PM at Fox Lumber in Clinton with the walk starting at 1:00.
