Waco churches planning Halloween ‘trunk-or-treat’
Brrrr. You can tell November is just around the corner!
After an unusually warm fall (was it just last week?), these 40-ish temperatures sure feel winter-like, don't they?
Someone said the other day that he believes we have only two seasons now – summer and winter. I'm inclined to agree.
You know next week is Halloween and trick or treat for the youngsters. Most of our churches are offering “trunk-or-treat” on that night, Oct. 31, from 6 to 8 p.m. as an alternative and “safer” way to collect all those treats!

Sichko’s ‘Among Friends’ ranks high on amazon.com
“Among Friends: Stories from the Journey” by Father Jim Sichko of St. Mark Parish in Richmond is ranked 19th in the amazon.com category of self-help/spiritual books. It ranks 1,742 among the 10 million books available through the online retailer.
The priest signed copies of his book Thursday night at the church. Despite competition from a downtown parade that inhibited traffic, a large crowd showed up to get personalized autographs for their copies.
Our readers tell us about their pastors
These responses were posted on the Richmond Register’s Facebook page when we asked our readers to tell us about their pastors for Pastor Appreciation Week.
Holding true to our faith in Him
Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; and having an high priest over the house of God; let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering, for he is faithful that promised
— Heb 10:19-23

There is a reason why we have been located here for seven decades, and that is simply because we believe in sharing Christ around the corner and around the world.
For 70 years, we have strived to help families and individuals to build and strengthening their lives through our lord and savior, Jesus Christ.
The just shall live through their faith
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
