September 01, 2022 -  December 31, 2022   Time: TBA

The Columbia (SC) Chapter of the Links, Incorporated is entering its 70th year of community service and philanthropy within the Midlands of South Carolina. To commemorate our 70th year of community partnerships and service, we aim to administer 70 Intentional Acts of Kindness between the months of September 2022 and December 2022. We need your help to nominate individuals, families, and/or organizations that will benefit greatly from an “Intentional Act of Kindness.”  Examples of “Intentional Acts of Kindness” include but are not limited to helping a family reconnect their power, gas or water, helping someone enroll in Medicaid, helping connect a child with a rewarding summer camp, learning or tutoring experience. Awardees will be randomly selected and contacted to facilitate their Act of Kindness.

Interested persons  will need to complete the attached application in order to nominate an individual, family or organization for an Act of Kindness within the 2022 calendar year.

SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON
October 2, 2022
9:00 AM

Faith Requires Mutual Love

Background: HEBREWS 13:1–6; 1 CORINTHIANS 13
Devotional Reading:  JOHN 13:31–35

Keep in Mind
“And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.” (1 Corinthians 13:13, KJV)

Aim for Change
By the end of the lesson, we will DEFINE Christian love and discuss its implications; REFLECT on the ways we experience Christian love in our lives; and PRACTICE love as it 
is rooted in our faith in Christ. 

Focal Verses: Hebrews 13:1-3; 1 Corinthians 13:1-13

Hebrews 13:1-3
1 Let brotherly love continue.

2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
3 Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.

1 Corinthians 13:1-13
1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2  And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains,
     and have not charity, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it
   shall vanish away.
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity

Daily Bible Readings:
MONDAY -- “I Love You, O Lord” -- Psalm 18:1–6

2022 Saint John’s Drive-Thru Trunk or Treat
DOWNLOAD THE REGISTRATION FORM BY CLICKING THE LINK:   TRUNK OR TREAT REGISTRATION

You are cordially invited to participate in this year’s Trunk or Treat for the kids of Saint John and the surrounding communities. Saint John will host Trunk or Treat on Monday, October 31th from 6-7:30 p.m. We would love for you to join us!

What is Trunk-or-Treat? Trunk-or-Treat is where individuals or groups decorate the trunk of a car and pass out candy as kids “trunk-or-treat” from car-to-car. Trunk-or-Treat allows kids to have all the fun of trick-or-treating in a safe environment without crossing streets or worrying about traffic as well as going into unfamiliar neighborhoods and homes.

How to get involved: Participation is free! All your group needs to provide is one (1) car trunk decorated with a kid-friendly theme and someone to pass out candy (enough candy for 100 kids). Please return the enclosed registration form via email by Friday, October 28th.

On the day of the event, please arrive by 5:30 p.m. to receive your assigned spot and begin setting up your Halloween scene. You may incorporate your auxiliary’s name/ministry into your display as well as dress in friendly costumes.

 Please contact me at 803-760-3508 if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for your interest and I hope to see you at Trunk-or-Treat!
