Just a reminder that this Sunday we will be observing the sacrament of Holy Communion.  For those joining us in person, we will distribute individually wrapped communion packages with grape juice and communion wafer.  If you are joining us for worship online, we invite you to use whatever bread and wine or grape juice you have available in your home. Please prepare your hearts and minds over the next few days as we approach this sacred Sunday observance. 
Pastor Neal's sermon last Sunday on the Parable of the Talents is available to watch by clicking on the image above.  You can also find recent sermons and worship videos on our church YouTube Channel as well as our Facebook page
It is that time of year again for our annual and very successful Coat Sunday! In partnership with our preschool and elementary school, we are currently collecting new and used coats until October 23rd. You can bring coat donations to the church office, or simply hang them on the fence near the front office door, and we will collect them.  Then on October 25th (Reformation Sunday!) we'll say a prayer of blessing over the coats in both Sunday worship services, after which they will be delivered to needy children in Ciudad Juarez. Thank you for your donations!
While we are still awaiting guidance from the City Health Department, we are very much hoping to host a safe and socially-distant version of our annual Trunk or Treat event on Saturday, October 31st in the afternoon/evening.  If you would like to volunteer to decorate your vehicle and provide us with a trunk, please contact Patty at the church office (915-533-7551, to let us know.  We'll provide more details as they become available, but need to get a sense quickly for who is interested and willing to help.  

On Thursday, October 15th, First Presbyterian Church will participate in the international "Wave of Light" event with an evening worship service and candle lighting at our outdoor prayer labyrinth.  The service will be an opportunity to remember children lost during pregnancy, infancy, and childhood or adulthood. Participants are invited to bring a small picture or memento to deposit in a memory box that will be interred beneath the labyrinth. The service will begin at 6:30pm, and at 7pm we will join in with others around the world in lighting candles of remembrance.  Please feel free to invite anyone you think may benefit from this event.

Wishing You A
