1 I will bless the LORD at all times; *
his praise shall ever be in my mouth.
2 I will glory in the LORD; *
let the humble hear and rejoice.
3 Proclaim with me the greatness of the LORD; *
let us exalt his Name together.
4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me *
and delivered me out of all my terror.
7 The angel of the LORD encompasses those who fear
him, *
and he will deliver them.
8 Taste and see that the LORD is good; *
happy are they who trust in him!
Fear the LORD, you that are his saints, *
for those who fear him lack nothing.
5 Look upon him and be radiant, *
and let not your faces be ashamed.
10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger, *
but those who seek the LORD lack nothing
that is good.
6 I called in my affliction and the LORD heard me *
and saved me from all my troubles.
22 The LORD ransoms the life of his servants, *
and none will be punished who trust in him.

Elections Meeting: Sunday, December 7, 2014
The Elections Committee is now accepting nominations for four Vestry members, one Diocesan Delegate, one Alternate Diocesan Delegate, and a Rector’s Warden, who are to be elected at this year’s Elections Meeting on Sunday, December 7, 2014.
The Elections Committee members are outgoing Vestry members Lois Jenkins, Froylan Luna, Max Martinez, Paula Panissidi,
and Grace Siwajuola, with at-large members Emerica Williams and Refiloe Bam. Lois Jenkins (Rector’s Warden) is ex officio
on the Elections Committee. We are seeking nominations for the following positions:
Vestry Member for one 1 year term (filling Norm Nicholson’s vacated position) through December 31, 2015
Vestry Members for 3 year terms (January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2017)
Diocesan Delegate (3 year term, February 1, 2015 through January 31, 2018)
Alternate Diocesan Delegate (3 year term, February 1, 2015 through January 31, 2018)
Rector’s Warden (3 year term, January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2017)
In keeping with the bylaws we will need at least six nominees for the four Vestry positions, two nominees for the office of
Diocesan Delegate and Alternate Diocesan Delegate, and two nominees for Rector’s Warden, but we hope that more people
will consider running for these offices. Even if you do not get elected this time, it is a chance to begin exploring how you
might want to take a more active role in our church government. Please consider prayerfully whether this may be the time
for you to consider serving in leadership at Episcopal Church of Our Saviour in this way.
Nomination forms and ballot boxes are located in the Narthex and in the hallway beside the office wing.
This year marks the 58th anniversary of the
Fellowship of the Trees at the Church of Our Saviour!
This effort has been held every year since 1957 on the site of the church and long ago became a “community
tradition”. We look forward to another successful year in 2014 and will need everyone’s help. Please come out and
join us during the campaign!
We hope that all church members will buy their trees at the church and ask that each member encourage at least one
of their friends, neighbors, or co-workers to do the same. Remember that all proceeds from this effort are used by
the church for its outreach programs and operations. Last year we raised just under $14,200.
We plan to set up the tree lot on Saturday, November 22nd beginning at 9 am. Please come out with your portable
drill and gloves and give us a hand! The more folks that show up, the quicker it all goes!!
We have ordered 390 beautiful trees and 75 Fraser fir wreathes this year and they will arrive on Sunday, November
30 at 7 am. This is when we need the most help to unload the truck and fill up the lot. Last year we had a great
group so please come out and help us out again. It is a wonderful way to work off all of that turkey, dressing, gravy,
and pumpkin pie….
Sales will begin on Sunday, November 30th and we will be open every day. The hours and “shifts” we will be
looking to fill with help are:
Monday thru Friday:
3 to 6 pm and 6 to 9 pm
Saturday and Sunday:
9 to noon; noon to 3 pm;
3 to 6 pm; and 6 to 9 pm.
We need as much help as possible to make this year a successful one. Mark your calendars now as there are many
days on which you can help. A calendar will be posted soon on the bulletin board outside the Commons Room
where you can sign up for shifts to sell trees and help on the lot.
We must have at least two individuals for each shift. While we would like folks to commit to a full 3 hour block of
time, we understand that this is sometimes hard to do, so please sign up even if you can only come for part of the
time and indicate what times you plan to be there. There will always be someone with experience on each shift who
can operate the chain saw and help get the trees tied on the cars so don’t let your inexperience keep you away! If
you do sign up and then have to change or cancel, please let us know.
If you have any questions, please call Don Spicer at 301-989-0503. Thanks in advance for all of your support.
Those for Whom We Pray
Gracious God, watch over these your children. Send your healing power upon those who are sick, protect
those travelling or in danger, and guide those who have decisions to make. Make known your love to all.
We ask all this in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen.
