    OCTOBER

    West Richmond Church of the Brethren

    WORLD COMMUNION SUNDAY

    We will have communion with our brothers and sisters around the World on Sunday, October 6th

    Won’t you join us?!

    From the Pastor 2

    In Our Congregation 3

    Calendars/Schedules 4-5

    With Our Community 6

    Around Our District 7

  • L ast October, The Christian Education Commission set aside a special Sunday and called it Bible Sunday. We presented Bibles to our 3rd and 4th Graders. We recognize the special Bibles in our own lives. I was extremely impressed with a Bible Ann Andrus brought. It was a family heirloom, a Bible printed in the 1700s by the Sauer Press of Philadelphia. The Sauer Press was well known for printing the Bible in German for the German immigrants that had settled in the Germantown area of Philadelphia, PA. The Sauer’s were members of the German Baptist Brethren, now known as the Church of the Brethren.

    T he Christian Ed Commission plans to hold another Bible Sunday. This year’s Bible Sunday will be on October 13 during the morning service. Zherina Whitten, our 3rd Grader, will be receiving her Bible that morning. We will take time to share the stories of the Bibles we bring.

    C hristopher Sauer II (1721-84) took over his father’s print shop during the Revolutionary War. Due to his neutral, pacifistic position, authorities marched Christopher Sauer off at bayonet point, tormented, arrested, and sought to force him to swear an oath of allegiance to the cause. He refused, due in part, to his ultimate allegiance to God. They seized and sold at auction his property and he was left penniless with just his clothes on his back (Brethren Encyclopedia p.1146).

    P lease, bring a Bible from home that has special meaning for you and plan to share on Sunday, October 13 during our Sunday morning worship.
