Fifth Sunday Game Night  Game time!  (No, not football)  We play card and board games every fifth Sunday.  The next one is Sept 29, from 4:00 – 6:00 pm in the Fireside Room.  Bring a snack to share; games will be provided.  All ages welcome!
Family Camp  Two nights at Arch Cape, s’mores on the beach, and lots of joy.  We do it once a year; this year it’s Oct 11-13.  Only $50 for one night, $75 for two – for the whole family!  Saturday only option is $20.  See Elizabeth Brown for more info.

September 29 All are invited to a Town Hall Meeting in the sanctuary and to rehearse a special song for World Communion Sunday.  Stay for a short time after worship and lend your heart and voice to one or both of these events.

All Church Work Party  We need you!  For only two hours, 10:00 – noon, on Saturday, October 5.  Help us prove that “many hands make light work.”
