Organ Recital

This concert will be the kickoff for Music on the Mountain, a series of musical events that will occur throughout the year.

Mountaintop Moments
Sunday, October 1
An exciting new series of get-togethers is planned this fall: MOUNTAINTOP MOMENTS, a chance for us to share our unique stories with one another in response to questions like these: 
Have you had a mountaintop moment...
  • that changed your life?
  • that made spirituality more real or personal?
  • right here on our mountain, and could you share what that meant to you?
These informal gatherings are non-judgmental and non-competitive. Listeners are welcome-you don't have to share if you don't want to. We'll gather in the Chapel on Sunday mornings after church on October 1, November 12, and December 10, with the possibility of continuing this series into the new year. For more details, please contact a member of the Mountaintop Moments committee: Lindy Judd, Hilary Thomas Dorer, Jerry Murphy, or Al Hudgins.

Halloween costumes for CASA SHaW, a non-profit organization helping children in foster care. Your donation will help children celebrate the holiday when they otherwise wouldn't be able to so. Costumes can be dropped off at the Bedwell Elementary School lobby between now and Thursday, October 5. Please put all costumes and their accessories in one bag secured either by tying the bag closed or otherwise sealing it shut. If you have any questions, please contact Rita Gudgion  or Heather Eich Thank you for your support!
