If your child is interested in attending the National Youth Gathering, we need to get registrations in. Please contact me or Pastor Tim with questions and interest. National Youth Gathering will be held in Minneapolis in July of 2022, July 24-28. This is an unbelievably amazing experience!
Next week, office hours are limited to Tuesday and Wednesday from 8:30am-Noon. The church office will be closed on Thursday, October 21, as staff are offsite.

Remember, you must be 6 months out from your second Pfizer vaccine to qualify for a booster.

Trunk or Treat is Sunday, October 31, from 5:00pm-6:30pm. I would appreciate everyone who can, to please host a car in the parking lot. You can begin parking any time after 4:00pm. Please continue to bring bagged candy donations to the church office. It’s amazing how many bags of candy we can distribute in such a short period of time! If you are the parent of a confirmation student, hosting a car is a wonderful opportunity for your student to come and have fun handing out candy for the evening. There will be a costume contest for all middle school and high school youth. The one caveat is that everyone should wear appropriate costumes, be creative in your selections.
All Saints Sunday is November 7. During worship, we will acknowledge those of our loved ones and members who have entered the Kingdom of God these past two years. The Sanctuary will be decorated with arrangements of white roses given in memory of departed loved ones. The names of those remembered will be printed in the bulletin. If you are interested in purchasing a rose in memory of a loved one, please make out a check in the amount of $5.00 per rose, and include your name(s) and in whose memory the rose is being given. You may use a pew envelope and/or include the information on a sheet of paper. Please place it in the offering plate, mail it to church or drop it off at church. The last day to order is Sunday, October 31.
We are preparing a newsletter which will be mailed on Tuesday, October 26. The newsletter will highlight worship, activities and events through the beginning of the New Year.
I hope you have a blessed day! Take care…Be safe…
