October 6 Church Bulletin Highlights

Blessing of the Animals Today
4 pm - Courtyard

Choir (Children and Youth) Practice Today: Our choir needs more musicians (singers and instrumentalists) than just elementary age singers. All ages are invited to join us after Sunday Worship in Room 209 as we work on learning new canons (rounds) and rehearse our song, “If I Were a Butterfly,” and the ringing of the melody line for “All Things Bright and Beautiful” which we will sing today at the Blessing of the Animals.

Dear Readers: Book Group is meeting on Tuesday, October 8, at 7:30 pm, discussing the last two chapters of How God Became King by NT Wright. We'll also be discussing which book to read next, so be on the alert for options. Happy reading!       – Kay Greer

Sandwich: Volunteers are needed to place sandwich meat between two slices of bread and place in a baggie! That’s how you can help feed our city’s hungry children. Come to Fellowship Hall at 6 pm Wednesday and truly make a difference in a child’s life.

Congratulations to Vera Newell: Vera will be honored at a dinner on October 10 for 21 years of service at Braes Interfaith Ministries (BIM). Bravo Vera!
