JOYFUL NOISE HANDBELL CHOIR. I f you've ever thought about ringing with the bell choir, now would be a good time to stand up and be counted! You don't need to know anything about bells. Short-term commitments (a month at a time) welcome! If you're interested, talk with PL or Fred. The bell choir rehearses most Wednesdays from 6 p.m. until 7.30 p.m. in the meeting room.
 
FOOTHILLS' CHOIR NEEDS YOU!  Can't attend Wednesday rehearsals? Don't read music? Sing with the easy choir! Just show up at 9:15 a.m. on the first Sunday of the month in the sanctuary.

TRUTH SEEKERS Our current study is  Countering Pharaoh's Production-Consumption Society Today.   Walter Brueggemann describes it as "a journey from slavery to covenant that we keep making over and over again...[because] Pharaoh has immense powers always to draw us back into slavery."  It will be interesting to talk about the way our consumerist society affects us as we head into preparing for Christmas. All are welcome. Thursday mornings 11:00 a.m.-12:15 p.m.
