EOU Study Snacks

It is that time of year again!  Our Mission folks asked us to send out the information on the Study Snacks.

Besides Hanging of the Greens, we will collect the Study Snacks on Dec 1st.  We will either 'basket' them up or pass them on to our K-House people to do that.  This year they are looking to get the following:  Apples or oranges, fruit cups, snack cracker packets, granola or protein bars, pudding cups, hot chocolate packets, tea, candy bars, fruit snack packets, microwave popcorn, and trail mix or nut packets.  

We will have a signup sheet in the back of the sanctuary as well.  Thanks in advance for reaching out to the EOU students before finals!

10 Years!

Tomorrow, Saturday, Nov 9 marks our 10 year anniversary as serving as your co-pastors.  In recognizing this milestone, we want to celebrate you on Sunday, Nov 10!  After service, we will host a Congregation Appreciation Potluck at the PFC and we want you there to say thank you for growing with us during these 10 years.  We are bringing the cake. Even if you didn't sign up to bring something, that's ok. Bring something if you can, but help us celebrate the joy of seeing Jesus in action through you!  See you Sunday!

It is Star Time!

It is time to make the Star Ornaments that decorate the sanctuary during Advent.  These are the stars the Star Man gives to children after the Christmas Pageant.  It is a tradition to only have adults involved in the making of the stars since they are a gift to the children.  Please join us on November 7 from 4-6PM in the parlor to work together on this project.  Thank you!

All Saints Celebration

This Sunday, Nov. 3 at 9:30am worship, we will be celebrating All Saints. As part of the service, we will remember and read the names of beloved ones who have died. 

On Sunday morning, there will be a list at the back table in the sanctuary for you to write the names of loved ones you would like named. We will also set up a table in front where you can place a photo or small memento of beloved ones. 

It is always a moving remembrance time, as we celebrate the whole communion of saints, God's people through history and across time and space, whose stories continue to inspire and instruct us on our own journeys of faith. We hope you can be with us this Sunday.

Peanut Butter Drive for Friday Backpack

Hi, Friends-We are doing a peanut butter drive for Friday Backpack this fall.  Our goal will be to bring in 100 jars of peanut butter by the end of November.

They take jars from 15-16 oz, no glass.  The brand is not important, but they try to stick with the name brands.  So next time you are at the store, please remember to pick up an extra jar or two!

ps-I also learned, ending today, that if you have a Safeway card, the Safeway brand jars of peanut butter are $.99.
