Please consider giving Fair Trade Chocolate Minis this year at Halloween! It’s guilt-free: Good Chocolate for Giving, and Fair Trade for Justice. Even if the trick-or-treaters stay at home this year, you can celebrate Halloween with guilt-free Fair Trade Chocolate Minis with your family. The current world-wide pandemic affects farmers everywhere, and they need your support, too. Two chocolate minis make a nice Halloween treat. The kids really love them! We have both milk and dark chocolate Fair Trade Minis: small bite-sized pieces of great chocolate!
We stock some minis, but we can order what you need in time for Halloween
if you let us know by October 18.
Our Annual Snowflake Bazaar will be held on Saturday, November 13 from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm. Due to Covid Regulations we all must wear masks to be admitted are we are not allowed to serve food or beverages in the building. This will change the looks and sounds or the bazaar, no choir singing Christmas Carols, no gigantic potatoes served with all the toppings you could imagine, no leisurely lunch with friends. Ruth Circle will be having a homemade pie sale for take out, either with pieces of pie or whole pies. We'll have our regular Cookie Walk where you may choose your favorite kinds and pay by the pound. We'll have our usual booths with breads, jams, jellies, etc., embroidered tea towels, Christmas Crafts and decorations will all be available and of course GRANDMA'S ATTIC with all the favorite White Elephants for sale. We also need you to save your White Elephants for us. One person's junk can be another person's treasure. Bring them to Fellowship Hall on Friday, November 12, the day before the bazaar. Preschool and Children's Commission will be there too. Hope to see you there!
Both our congregation and the Worship Team of the Annual Conference would like to pray with and for you. If you would like to share your prayers with the congregation and/or the Worship team for the Closing session of the Annual Conference, please let us know
What did the “Lord’s Prayer” mean to Jesus’ disciples when he taught it to them 2000 years ago? It must have meant a lot because we still repeat it today – probably the one prayer most often recited in group worship around the world. Our Bible Study group continues to explore those meanings and invites you to participate.
We meet weekly on Zoom for about an hour, during which we share how we have experienced God in our lives, as well as current challenges. We will discuss a faith based article during each meeting and lift each other up in prayer. If you would like more information or need access to the current article, you can contact Elham Rafla-Yuan at email@example.com
The men’s breakfast group is studying Deep Adaptation: Navigating the Realities of Climate Chaos
edited by Jem Bendell & Rupert Read.
‘Deep Adaptation’ refers to the personal and collective changes that might help us to prepare for – and live with – a climate-influenced breakdown or collapse of our societies. It is a framework for responding to the terrifying realization of increasing disruption by committing ourselves to reducing suffering while saving more of society and the natural world.
Join us in relationship as we explore the challenges of our times and discern our responses to those challenges.
We meet Thursday mornings 8:30 to 9:30. All men are welcome!
As stated on the inside flap of her book: "In the 1950's and 1960's, white officials in communities across the country opted to drain their public swimming pools rather than integrate them. Generations later, America still hasn't recognized that racism has a cost for everyone. But our future can look different."
