TO ALL VISITORS ATTENDING WORSHIP THIS MORNING:  We are thankful that you are worshiping our Lord and Savior Jesus with us.  Part of worshiping our Lord is bringing our financial gifts in the form of offerings to support the ministry of Christ’s church.  As our guest today, please do not feel obligated to give an offering.  We are just thankful that you are here and hope you will continue to worship with us. Want to give your offerings online? Go to www.copperluth.org/give or text “copperluth” to 77977 from your smartphone to get started.

 HOLY COMMUNION: In preparation to receive the Lord’s Supper, please ask yourself these questions: Have I confessed and repented of my sins? Do I believe that in this Sacrament I am receiving the actual body and blood of Christ, under the bread and wine, into my mouth, for the forgiveness of my sins? Do I share the confession and wish to participate in the unity of this congregation? Will I, with the Lord’s help, amend my sinful life? If you answer, “yes” to all of these questions, please join us for this blessed gift from God for our forgiveness.

If you need a gluten free wafer, please ask the pastor when you are kneeling at the rail.

Church Communications Updates

We have some new communications methods that we want to make sure you are receiving, if you desire.

  • Wednesday Morning Weekly Update Email

If you’re not receiving this, please email secretary@copperluth.org to be added to the list. Or, check your spam folder in your email.

  • *NEW Church App for mobile phones and tablets (Apple, Android, Windows, Amazon) Go to the app store on your device and search for “Saints Peter and Paul” and you’ll see it.

ALTAR FLOWERS are given to the glory of God in loving memory of D’Lema Baughman (Dala Beard’s mother) from John & Dala. For many years D’Lema would put flowers on the altar at her home church to express her thanks to God for the faith and courage of Martin Luther.

POINSETTIA PLANTS:  If you would like to order Poinsettia Plants for Christmas, please sign the sheet located on the table outside the multi-purpose room or contact the church office at 482-4750 by Sunday, November 12th.  Cost of the plant is $20.  Only those plants that have been paid for will be ordered.  You may take your plant home after Christmas Eve Svc. if you wish.

2017 OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD: A reminder that all donations are due back no later than Sunday, November 12th. Boxes should not be taped shut to facilitate international customs inspection. A donation of $9 per box would be appreciated to offset shipping costs and provide a 12-week follow up discipleship program for the kids. Boxes and information are available at the display table in the narthex. Our 2017 goal is 250 boxes and $2,000. Thank you for supporting this worthy cause!

COFFEE DONATIONS:  We are running low on decaffeinated coffee.  Anyone who would like to donate cans of coffee to be used for church functions, please bring them to the church kitchen and they will be stored there until needed.  Thank you.
