For Reflection

Today we celebrate calling, service, and the 100-year anniversary of Mennonite Central Committee.



Sunday morning will be Zoom only.  Sunday school will be at 9:30. There will be a "fellowship break" at 10:30. Worship will be at 10:45. We will observe communion... if you haven't picked up your cups yet, please plan to provide your own elements. The meeting will be "open" from 9:15a-12:30p. We will also celebrate calling, service, and MCC; and we will read Jonah 3.

Next Sunday Bill Thornton will have the message, and he will be speaking on the fruits of the Spirit.


There’s one more week to donate for the People's City Mission Thanksgiving baskets: please drop off the big cans of yams and boxes of stuffing at the church by Nov 15. Talk to Dave if you need pick-up or help getting in the building.


We have a sharing fund to assist our members as well as those more loosely connected w/ us who are struggling with financial hardship. Please speak with someone on the nurture commission: Steve, Julie, and/or Ron.


Gifts Discernment is looking to fill the primary Sunday school superintendent position. If you would like more information please contact Brett, Julie, or Becky. 


The shop will continue to be "open" for shop hours Thursday from 3-6. We are meeting virtually on Zoom. Stop by to chat if you'd like.


As winter weather forces us to adjust our lifestyles, please continue to be extra intentional in connecting. Physical distance is not equal to social isolation. Let's love our neighbors around the area and world.
