October 31st Announcements

  • Our building will be used as a Polling Place on Tuesday, Nov 2. (We won’t be sharing refreshments this time around.)
  • Do you have anything for our Governance Team to discuss? Please let Rich or Brenda C. know as soon as you’re able.
  • This year we’ve had painting done, put on a new roof, re-floored the Pantry, installed state-of-the-art AV equipment, and are on our way to finishing up a HUGE garden fence and planting over 100 trees. This is in addition to all the little fixes and replacements that happen throughout the year! Take a moment to thank God that you’re helping provide such a wonderful place to so many people who need it. Thank you.
  • In lieu of canceling the Regional Gathering, the North Central Region will be hosting a Zoom conversation Thursday, November 11th at 7:30 pm. Mark your calendars now! Link to follow.
  • November 13th! Come plant trees with us! 9a, rain or shine…
  • October 31st was once known as All Hallow’s Eve, the day before All Hallow’s Day, also known as All Saints Day. In time, “All Hallow’s Eve” became “Halloween,” much as “God be with you” became “goodbye.” All Hallow’s Eve was a time of spiritual preparation for All Saints Day, an explicitly Christian tradition now largely lost. On All Saints Day we remember that all Christians are “saints,” or “holy ones,”–that is, “hallowed”–that the Church is the community of holy ones both alive and who have passed on before us. What “saints” have helped you experience God’s love? How can you be a living saint today? Who will you remember tomorrow on All Saints’ Day?
