This Sun, Nov 3: honoring the dead
This Sunday, we'll celebrate All Soul's Day and Dia de los Muertos. We'll honor the dead by bringing their pictures and beloved objects for our altar, as well as singing "For All the Saints," "Litany of the Saints," and other favorites.
Please remember that Daylight Saving Time ends on the morning of Nov 3. If you don't change your clock, you may arrive early to church!
Rev. Jason Hubbard returns Sat, Nov 2
This Sat, Nov 2, church development coach Rev. Jason Hubbard will return for a workshop. Now that he's helped us uncover why we gather and how we enact our core values, we'll discuss what we can do next.
Please join us from 9 am to 3 pm in the sanctuary. Food will be provided for breakfast, and we encourage you to bring a dish for our potluck lunch.
