COMING UP SUNDAY- NOV. 1

November 1 is All Saints Day.  It is one of the major feast days in our church calendar.  On All Saints’ Day, the Church honors all the saints’, known and unknown.  While there is information about many famous saints, there are countless men and women who have lived lives of faith, but never been honored or remembered. On this holiday, we celebrate all these holy men and women.  Join us for virtual worship at 9am.  The Zoom link can be found in the right column of this page.  We will read aloud the names of loved ones who have died in the past year.  Send a message to the email in the Contact Information if you would like us to remember someone.

COMING UP SUNDAY-OCT.25

 This is the 21st Sunday after Pentecost (Proper 25).  Last Sunday morning, worship was inside the church due to the cold temperature. The plan is to stay outside as long as possible throughout the Fall, as long as it is not too cold.  The service will be available live on Zoom each week.  If you want the details or in person worship or the Zoom connection, send an email to the address in the Contact Information tab above.  All are welcome at our services!
The Strong Arms Support Group continues to meet virtually twice a month. If you have a family member who is struggling with addiction, or if you have lost a family member to an overdose, join this support group.  It is led by two licensed therapists and they offer support and hope.

COMING UP SUNDAY-OCT. 18

This is the 20th Sunday after Pentecost (Proper 24).  It looks like it will be sunny (but chilly) again this week, so another outdoor worship service is possible. There have been 15 consecutive Sundays with excellent weather.  The worship services on the lawn have included music, Scripture readings, a sermon and Eucharist.  They have been accompanied by birds, squirrels and now falling leaves in our midst. All are welcome for these services.  Send a message to the email address in the Contact Information tab and ask for details.  Or ask for the Zoom link so you can watch it virtually.
This is the week that our congregation gathers food items for the WARM Center.  The following items are needed: prepackaged cookies and treats, juice boxes, water bottles. Bring them to church on Sunday, or contact us if you have something to donate.
