Dear Members & Friends of the Beresford-Centerville Joint Parish of the UCC
Dear Members & Friends of the Beresford-Centerville Joint Parish of the United Church of Christ,
Thanksgiving is just around the corner; then Advent; & before we know it Christmas & the New Year.
December 10 is a pivotal day for our congregations; it’s Candidate Sunday, a day on which we’ll have a candidate conduct our joint worship service after which the members will vote to either accept him as our full-time minister (or not). The day begins in the Beresford UCC @ 9:30 in the morning with a Joint Parish potluck brunch & candidate meeting time, followed by the Joint service @ 11:00 a.m. Then the vote. We’re hopeful.
In the interim, we are fortunate to have Rev. Cheryl Schmeling, a retired Methodist minister, to be with us on Sundays, at least through December. She’s a treasure!
Do have a joyous Thanksgiving. As you enjoy the Day, possibly consider the quotes that follow; quotes included in the November 19 bulletin
I am grateful for what I and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.
Henry David Thoreau
Be thankful for what you have. Your life, no matter how bad you think it is, is someone else’s fairy tale. Wale Ayeni
The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest. William Blake
Safe travels & a Happy Day!

Corrigan played a wonderful piano solo while his mother both played the piano and sang an inspirational song! Thank you for sharing your talents with us! It is greatly appreciated!
