It’s time to ring! This Wednesday at 7 pm (immediately following WE MEET the hadbells will rehearse upstairs in the bell room. It’s fun. It’s easy. It brings an extra sparkle of joy to our Sunday Worship! Come check it out!
Getting To Know You – And Our Mission!
            Our “Season of Gratitude” wouldn’t be complete without the opportunity to get into a few homes, and our church home, for some fellowship and a chance to talk about our church.  What are we most grateful for at the church?  And, in plain English, what does our money accomplish when we “pledge”?
So we have scheduled three “House Gatherings”:
            Sunday Oct. 30, (Joyce Kepke, 1132 Lyn Rd), 5 pm
            Wednesday Nov. 2, (church fellowship hall after the WeMeet supper), 7 pm
            Thursday Nov. 3, the Revs. Saunders (875 Lyn Rd.), 5:30 pm
Sign-up sheets are ready for you today in the Fellowship Hall, or you can email or call the office.

YOUTH OVERNIGHT!! Our junior and senior high youth will gather next Saturday at 6:00 pm to launch their fall overnight event.  They’ll attend the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration at St. Aloysius Catholic Church that evening (7 pm) and then have food, fellowship and a mission focus on the situation in Haiti.  Sunday morning they’ll help with the church service and Trunk or Treat, and will wash your car to raise money for disaster assistance in Haiti.  Bring a friend!

Trunk or Treat - As is our tradition, we'll be hosting Trunk or Treat for our students and the neighborhood kids after worship on the last Sunday of October, October 30.  We'll have snacks, treats and games for everyone to enjoy.  We'll need lots of cars to be lined up in Presby Park for the kids to visit, so plan to bring your car and show off your fall festiveness on that Sunday.
