Twentieth Sunday After Pentecost
October 2, 2016


"We invite everyone to share communion around God's altar. 

We strive to be a welcoming and relevant Christian community doing what matters through prayer, worship, teaching, outreach, fellowship, and service.  
We will demonstrate the real life application of scripture, tradition, and
reason by providing a safe place to respond to each other's needs,   
hurts, joys, and interests."

Preschool News

We talked about how a leaf changes colors.  The children helped prepare for this experiment by breaking up the leaves and mixing them with rubbing alcohol.  We added some hot water and then waited for our results.  They did a great job making predictions on the colors we might find.
