the church is an astounding gift that takes energy, imagination,
intelligence and love. God provides the gifts of worship, prayer and
study to nurture us for the journey of faith in the midst of our
hurting and broken world. Here are some of the opportunities that
will help us be nurtured for the journey:
Group – Meets each Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. in
the prayer room of the church. You are invited to gather with others
in a time of focused prayer. These gatherings last about an hour<.
a reminder – PW’s Halloween bake sale, Ghostly Goodies, is
being held TODAY
in the gym with Cottonwood’s Book Sale.
Buy a treat to enjoy while browsing (and buying!) books. All
proceeds from PW’S Bake Sale will go toward several mission
projects. The book sale will also take place again on Sunday,
November 2 after both services. All proceeds from the book sale goes
to Crossroads Thrift Store.
Cargo Day is Saturday, November
1, 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. All
are welcome, including the kids and youth of the church. It’s a
chance to work alongside others, have fun together and be a part of
the church community. It takes lots of people to keep the church
beautiful and clean! Your
help is needed with cleaning out flower beds, raking leaves, trimming
the shrubs, washing windows and general clean up around the church.
Bring your garden tools, window washing equipment and rags. Lunch
will be provided by the Soul Garden.
