September 29th - Blessing of the Animals

 Blessing of Animals this Sunday September 29 @ 12:30 in outdoor chapel area across parking lot from church upper entrance (weather permitting) - part of our remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi.   Bring your safe and well mannered (relatively speaking!) pets and join us this Sunday.   There is plenty of space to spread out with your pets if they are not as social and to walk afterwards.  This time together following a brief opening of scripture and prayer may include individual conversation, prayer, and blessing as well as photo ops.  Our dog friends will also receive, according to wishes of their owners,  lots of love and attention from Pastor and our youth. This is also a great opportunity to meet new people in the community and some very special members of their family. – small animals should be in containers / cages and dogs should be leashed.  Also, we will be collecting donations of dog and cat food for Daily Bread Food Pantry.

9:30 Worship for One More Sunday (Saturday Worship Begins)

September 7th & 8th Kick-Off Weekend Fall Worship Schedule Begins Weekly Saturday Worship at 5:00 pm. We return to our weekly service of Holy Communion for the upcoming program year.   This service is more intimate and a little less  formal with more spoken liturgy and monthly  appearances by our acoustic group, Soulful  Strings. We always look forward to Saturdays when they lead us in worship. Holy Communion  is always offered on Saturday nights. As we  begin a new program year together,  think about family members, friends, co-workers, and neighbors who could benefit from Saturday  worship, especially those who have work or  sports on Sunday and need a Sabbath with the  Word. Also, think about those who may have  medical issues that make mornings difficult or  those who are returning to the church and looking for something different.
