Animal Blessing on Sunday, October 1st at 2:00 pm

Our Service of Animal Blessing will be held in Brand Hall on Sunday, October 1st at 2:00 pm. All friendly pets on leashes or in carriers are welcome! Invite your two-legged and four-legged (winged and slithering) friends!

 

Children’s Table in Sanctuary

For those children who are too old for the nursery, but too young to be expected to sit quietly until the Children’s Message, we have set up an activity table in the sanctuary.  Children are not required to be at the table.  They are welcome to play at the table for part or all of worship, as they would like.  There are coloring sheets, books, and games available.  If you have an older child who would like to sit at the table and engage with the younger ones as a helper, that would be great too! We hope this creates a space in which parents can worship and children feel welcome and included.  Children are a blessing to our church and our worship experience, with all the joy and enthusiasm they bring!

 

Donations of disposable razors and tooth brushes are needed for JUMP (Joint Urban Ministry Project).
