Linda Wilkes and Nedra Stimpfle will lead participants in a service dedicated to the blessings animals bring to our lives.
Guest speakers Jill Sweet and Cynthia Klopfer will present the sermon in two parts. Jill Sweet will speak to how animals assist humans, specifically assistance dogs. Cynthia Klopfer will discuss her work with the Italian Greyhound Rescue Club.
Never forget that there is evil in this world, some directed at God's creatures.
Hymns will include All God’s Critters by Bill Staines and songs will include Old Dogs by Bill Staines and I Wanna Be a Dog/Cat by Barry Louis Pollisar.
Time will be given for a pet remembrance ceremony for past pets.
We will have guests and information after the service on opportunities for you to help animals in our area. Specifically we will have a guest from the Friends of Saratoga County Shelter, who will be accepting your donations of pet food, blankets, towels, paper towels and laundry detergent.
Half of the offering plate will be given to the Friends of Saratoga County Shelter and the Italian Greyhound Rescue Club.
So animals, please remind your owners to bring you to church this Sunday, at 10am. Treats will be available, oh and lemonade for your human friends.
Woof, meow, chirp, whinny, hiss, and hoot!
