I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God's hands, that I still possess. - Martin Luther
Yoga and Weights to the Oldies new sessions will begin this morning, October 28 and this Thursday, October 30. Veteran yoga teacher and personal trainer Pam Sharpe is looking forward to new and returning fitness enthusiasts to join her in these fun and focused classes.

Why do we? Every fall and winter, our pledges allow the church to forecast how much it will receive in offerings and to plan an annual budget. Pledging is a deeply personal matter, and there is no uniform guidance. But we can reflecton our connection to the church, our faith in God, and prayerfully consider our giving.

The Our House mission is to break the chain of homelessness by providing early childhood education and comprehensive support services for families experiencing homelessness. Through October 31 we will collect gently used or new items for the Mitten Tree to benefit the children of Our House (mittens, gloves, hats, etc.). Place your donations on the tree outside of Room 107. Contact Becky Schreiber becky.schreiber@gmail.com with questions. Thank you for your support.
