A public meeting of GalePride, Inc. will be held in the Christian Education building of First Presbyterian church Thursday, September 1st, at 7 pm. Ideas for providing educational, cultural, beneficial and mutual improvement activities to strengthen and support Galeton youth and adults will be discussed. Anyone with ideas to share please plan to attend, and spread the word about the meeting! 

Galeton library’s Fall Fest is Saturday, September 3rd, from 1 to 5 pm in center town park. 

 Grapevine articles are due to Robin Leach by September 6th. 

August birthdays and anniversaries in the congregations were celebrated during worship. 

Pastor Tom told us we are peculiar because we have a distinctive way of living. We love one another and practice hospitality from a circle reaching outside the circle. We take time for ourselves, family, to serve in some way, and we manage our money so we have some left to share. This is distinctive and peculiar. 

Jesus is a mentor for guidance and direction in Christian ethics. 

He attended a garden party at the home of a Pharisee and told a parable (Luke 14: 1, 7-14). He said not to take the best seat at a wedding to prevent embarrassment if the host asked you to move. 

Those who make themselves great will be humble, and the humble will be great. God will repay you the day the good people rise from death. 

Jesus also said when we have a party invite the uninvited. 

According to Pastor Tom, his important instructions were to relate to the world and give us a design for life. 

 God is good, Jesus is Lord. He gives us our marching orders. Be peculiar and distinctive!
