Twenty-fifth Sunday After Pentecost
November 13, 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."

Angels will be available for adoption in the narthex on November 13 and November 20 after both services.  Gifts must be brought to the church
no later than December 4.
