The 3rd Sunday of each month, we offer a special children's program at 10:30 am.  Our next Kid's day is November 19th!

Proceeds will be used to purchase lighter safer risers for the choir and make a minor adjustment to the stage to accommodate them. 

Select a leaf (or leaves) and donate the amount shown on that leaf in addition to your usual contribution. 
Please use the orange "Prosperi-Tree" envelopes provided. 

Money received that exceeds the cost of the risers will go toward the cost of painting the window trim.

 A Note From Lucille Olson

 A Rat Race or a Dance?
   When I think of a rat race, I picture a maze of cubicles and tiny hallways in an enclosed box or cage, with rats running around searching for a piece of cheese or a way out.  Sometimes our lives can feel like that.

   A few years ago, a politician had the bright idea that the state could save money by consolidating office spaces.  They chose a large room with no windows and artificial lighting for their experiment.  This room was filled to capacity with cubicles with little space for actually doing any work.  After enacting this money saving maneuver, employee moral plummeted.  Perhaps it was too much a reminder of the rat race described above!

   What if we could look at life as a dance instead of a rat race?  What if we embraced the magic, the mystical, or the mystery of life so we could see what it has to show us?  We might discover something that delights our senses, and engages our imagination.  Then, once engaged, dance with the challenges and obstacles that arise as we pursue this new interest or desire.  Take two steps forward, one step back, circle and sway, as we go where the spirit leads.  Sometimes the dance calls for a partner, but more often it is a solo performance.  Dancing with the rhythm of life can be fun if we allow ourselves to feel the joy of being in the flow of the Universal dance!

   A rat race is the antithesis of joy.  It produces stress, frustration and physical ailments, whereas a dance feeds us, gives us freedom, movement, and the joy of discovering what really motivates us.  The difference is in our feeling nature and the choices we make.  Are you ready to get out of your cubicle and dance?

If you, or someone you know, is  experiencing illness,  bereavement or other  life challenges,  contact Debbie Pennington at
