Help kick off this informal weekly service that features worship, communion, scripture, and prayer.

You are welcome just as you are – in jeans, with wiggling kids, coming straight from work, in a suit, with questions, with doubts, with your family, by yourself.

A vegetarian dinner is provided – this is not a potluck and there is no expectation that you bring a dish to pass. No RSVP is required. 

Practices of Progressive Christianity
An adult education forum –  September 24 after worship

 Sponsored by the Deacons, Pastor Mark and Leah will lead

Drawing from his work as global activist, pastor, and public theologian, Brian McLaren challenges readers to stop worrying, waiting, and indulging in nostalgia, and instead, to embrace the powerful new understandings that are reshaping the church. In The Great Spiritual Migration”, he explores profound shifts in spirituality, theology, and mission that define the change. We will discuss these three foci in the forum.

 

What does non-toxic charity look like?  
Come and find out
Sunday, Oct. 1, 11:30 am, Living Room

Our social welfare system has helped many families survive periods of crisis, but has done little to address the root causes of poverty and remove barriers to upward mobility. The Family Independence Initiative (FII) has been studying and working with families of low-income communities since 2001. FII brings families together so that they can learn from each other and from the accumulated experience of FII staff, many of whom come from low income communities. Join us for a chance to learn more about their impressive and innovative work.

 

 

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO REVIEW BYLAWS

As your moderators, we are seeking five (5) volunteers to work with us on the review and revision of the church bylaws.  This is a task specified in the bylaws to be carried out every five years.  In September each board, committee or office will be asked to submit to this bylaws committee, changes that pertain to their role in the church.  All recommended changes will be due by mid-October.  In October, the bylaws committee will prepare a draft of revised bylaws, taking into consideration all recommended changes and the bylaws a whole.  This draft will be made available to the congregation in November, as specified in the bylaws.  A vote on the revised documents will take place at the February Annual Meeting.

Please consider volunteering for this important, short-term commitment.  If more than five people step forward we will make every effort to select a representative group. 

To volunteer please email Pat Bonnet pbonnet15@gmail.com, or Alan Sooho  soohoalan@gmail.com  Thank you.

Pat and Bubba, Co-moderators
