CHILDREN'S PROGRAM. Children and youth ages 3 through 12th grade are invited to join their parents for the first part of worship. After the Children's Time, children and youth leave with their teachers for their age-based groups in the Learning Center.  Brittany and the preschool through first grade class have embarked on a service project, and we invite you to join us. We are creating blessing bags for homeless people. Each contains food, water, and hygiene supplies. There are a couple ways you can be part of this effort, donating supplies and distributing bags to people you see as you go about your daily life.  Please drop by our table in the courtyard after church to pick up a card with an item we need and a bag or two to take with you to help someone in need.

ANNUAL STEWARDSHIP CAMPAIGN. Today marks the formal start of this year's annual stewardship campaign. Our campaign theme this year is Giving It Forward, and it will run through the first week of November. We will mail out Estimate of Giving cards this coming week and we're asking you to have them back to us no later than Friday, November 3rd. This coming year promises to be an exciting and challenging one. Please give generously to help us move forward into this next chapter in our congregation's life .
