Read the newest issue of First Press today and share with your friends and
neighbors as an invitation to visit the
church. The introductory article, written by Elder Marty Bowles Edwards set the tone for the “Connect” theme.
She writes, “How do we experience our spirit? Spirit seems to be packed into a little box, deep in our hearts,
awaiting our decision to take a peek. Something else, something exciting, something awesome is
experienced if we lift the lid and gaze inside…
When encouraged to “BE” rather than “DO” we experience the Holy Spirit’s presence
in the core of our BEing. Holy Spirit stretches and expands our world and our
awareness. The Holy Spirit connects us to all of creation and invites us to be
a part of the creative process.”

Church Grounds Clean-up Day - Saturday, October 28, 8:00 am
You don’t need a green thumb to help with this project! Here is an opportunity for
productive fellowship and breakfast, too! On Saturday, October 28, from 8:00 am to
12:00 pm, everyone in the congregation is invited to help tidy up the planting beds
and lawns around the church building to get them ready for winter. If enough
volunteers attend, the playground and family gardens can be worked on as well. The
church will provide lawn bags for the yard waste and has a wheel barrow and small
rolling carts for use. Here’s what is needed from you... bring rakes for leaves and
tools to cut back plants for the winter. The Buildings and Grounds Committee
will provide a continental breakfast of bagels, cream cheese, donuts, juice, milk, and
coffee. Our custodian, Georgia Roberts, will serve as project manager that morning
and will be here to answer any questions or to grab tools for your use. Please
contact John Gere to RSVP if you would like to help.
