Robin Boelzner Shick
September 28, 1953 – November 1, 2022

It is with deep sorrow and thanksgiving to God that we let you know that Robin Shick has now been released from her suffering and is now in glory with her Savior.

It goes without saying that the Shick family has made a lasting impact upon Hyde Park Presbyterian with their service of 30 years of ministry as pastor and family. Being the spouse of a pastor is its own special ministry and one clearly worthy of great gratitude and praise. Robin also served diligently in the music ministry, both in singing and playing the handbells.

A service of Celebration of the Resurrection will be held at Hyde Park Presbyterian this Saturday Nov. 5 at 11:00 am. A reception will follow at Blount & Curry MacDill.

Please pray for God’s comfort to dwell richly with Ken and his three sons Matt, Jon and Spencer, and their families. Spencer lives in Atlanta and they have a tiny newborn; travel will most likely be challenging.

Next Step after Survey: Focus Groups!
Friday & Saturday, Nov. 11 and 12

Leighton Ford Ministries is busy tabulating our surveys and will lead several Focus Group meetings at the church to gain deeper insights. If you would like to participate, please email Kim Brannan.

Thank you to those who have already said YES to a focus group. Your input will be most helpful as we move forward in our Visioning process.

We surpassed our goal of 70% participation in the survey and your session will celebrate with dance in December. Thank you to all 58 people who completed the survey!

Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday
Extra hour of sleep, or perfect time to start a new habit?

Until our body clocks adjust, some of us will wake up a bit earlier Sunday morning. As Rev. James asked in his sermon, will you make a pledge to God of your time and give the first moments of your day and the first day of the week to God?

Start your day with God; this Sunday will be the easiest day of the year to start a new morning routine! (Then go find the watches and appliances that didn’t magically set themselves back an hour!)

Bulletins & eChimes Newsletter
Where to find them!

The Worship Bulletin is now loaded on the Church Center App in case you forgot to pick one up in the foyer before worship. Let’s save some trees and use that if you wish. Click More at the bottom of the home page.

The eChimes Newsletter is also available on the Church Center App AND online. It will still go out via email, but many of you have told us it goes into the Promotions or other folder, so now you can just pull it up on Church Center. Click More at the bottom on Church Center.
