‘We Are All Part of the Flock’
Matthew 25:31–46 — Pastor Jody Beth Melton
■ In-person and online services
■ Seeking worship helpers — If you would like to light and extinguish the candles as an acolyte, lead “time with the children,” or read Scripture as part of our online Sunday worship, please contact the church office for more information.
►In-person worship at 10 a.m.
■ We plan to have outdoor under-the-pines worship in front of the chapel. Don’t forget to bring a lawn chair. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, we will join together in the sanctuary.
■ With masks, social distancing and other necessary health precautions
The peace of Christ be with you— —and also with you. Passing the peace is a deeply theological practice of reconciliation not replicated in secular culture.
We greet each other in Christ, laying aside our differences — at least for the hour.
‘Time with the children’ Our 10 a.m. services normally include this segment focused on young worshipers.
Food pantry update
The food pantry is our “moment for mission” in November. Please add to your regular monthly offering any additional monies you would like to designate for the pantry.
These monies will go toward purchasing turkeys and supplies to help make a tasty Thanksgiving dinner for those in need. The pantry will be open on Wednesday, Nov. 25, from 10 to 11 a.m. to give out the bags.
Dorothy Warren has accepted the responsibility as food pantry coordinator. There are numerous volunteer opportunities to help Dorothy with this important mission. Please contact her at 251-424-5117 if you can help.
Swift Church offers children’s church (grades K–4) during the 10:00 service after “Time with the children.” It normally is offered each Sunday except for communion Sundays. There is no children’s church at this time.

Never underestimate the power of prayer
No problem you might have
is too big for God to handle.
Because God is with you all the time,
no place is any closer to God
than the place where you are right now.
