Unplug the Christmas Machine:
October 15 -- Workshop by Pastor Sylvia -- Unplug the Christmas Machine.  This is a chance to reflect on what we most want from the Christmas season and how to get it. The workshop will last from 8:30 till 2:30 or 3:00. Registration information will be available at the Welcome Center and in the church office. Child care will be provided.  

Fall Cleanup: 
With fall here and winter on the way, it’s time to get the prayer garden and church landscaping ready for the seasonal change. On Saturday, October 22, beginning at 8:30, volunteers are needed to move the fountain, statuary, planters, benches, trim shrubs, rake leaves, and in general clean the property. This year we also need help moving curb stops and cleaning the exterior of all the windows. Please bring loppers, leaf blowers, rakes, shovels, and small shop vacs to clean cobwebs from the windows. As always, coffee break treats are greatly appreciated and can be left in the Fireside Room that morning. Please contact Vicki Rye 389-4781 for more information.

Home Communion Deacons: 
We are in need of people to serve as Home Communion Deacons.  We have many members unable to get to church who appreciate receiving communion occasionally.  Our volunteer deacons call on 3-4 members once every three months to share communion with them.  If this is something you could help with please contact Bob Rye, 382-2973 or
