Join us for Adult Spiritual Formation by Zoom at 9:00 am or show up in the Shadow Rock Multipurpose Room! Today, we're taking a look at the range of stories in scripture with women characters. Everyone is welcome - come prepared for challenges and surprises, experience and growth.
Next week (November 28), the 9 o'clock hour is a special event: an Advent "Y'all Come" Sing Along. Singers and listeners are welcome in the sanctuary and on Zoom. Thanks Forrest and Julie for making this possible.

Celebrations and Prayer Concerns
Our Whole Lives Liturgy (adapted from "Good Is the Flesh" by Brian Wren)
One: Good is the body from cradle to grave, growing and aging, arousing, impaired.
All: Good is the pleasure of God in our flesh, Good is the flesh that the Word has become.
One: Good is the pleasure of God in our Flesh, longing in all, as in Jesus, to dwell.
All: Good is the body, for good and for God, Good is the flesh that the Word has become. Amen!
One: We give thanks for all those involved in Our Whole Lives: curriculum writers and testers, trainers and facilitators, parents and young folks!
All: This ministry blesses the world! This ministry blesses our community! Amen!
