Elizabeth Fink-Perez’s 90th Birthday!

We are creating a surprise video montage (or “Tribute”) for Elizabeth Fink-Perez to celebrate her upcoming 90th birthday on October 14. It is very easy to make and submit a video (you can record your own video on your phone and upload it or easily make a recording right on the Tribute site). The video can be seconds long just to say hello, or as long as you would like to express your sentiment or a special memory you might have of Mom. You can even sing happy birthday to her if you like. Videos must be submitted by October 8th at:

This will make an unforgettable gift for her and hearing from you will make her day very special! We love you all and we can’t wait to hear from you. Thank you in advance for making her 90th birthday one to remember!

FELLOWSHIPS ARE BACK!

Beginning this month (next Sunday, September 18), monthly fellowships will be held on the third Sunday of every month. They will take place after the 10:45 service, and everyone’s invited! If you wish, bring a covered dish, as always, but don’t stay away because you don’t have one. If you’d like to help with setup or cleanup, please contact Ann Reede.

Help Decorate the Vestibule for Harvest Home!

In preparation for Harvest Home Sunday on September 25, we’d like to decorate the vestibule with pumpkins, gourds, Indian corn, and any other natural or dried materials that will help to create a beautiful fall-themed entryway. Items may be dropped off in the vestibule.

Blessing our Pets and Animals.

On Sunday, October 2, our service of worship will include a special blessing of the animals. In preparation for this service, you may put together a sheet of paper with a picture of your pet or favorite animal along with brief information. Your pictures can then be displayed on the glass sanctuary doors prior to the service. You also may bring your pet in person to the service that day if that is manageable.

Blood Drive.

The Red Cross will be hosting a blood drive in the fellowship hall on Thursday, October 13, from 12:30PM – 7:30PM.
