News for October 13-19

Be Thou My Vision

Our stewardship campaign for 2020 continues the rest of this month, with videos posted on our website and special messages on selected Sunday mornings. We hope you’ve had a chance to reflect on how God is calling you to share in this incredible community!

Pledge cards have been mailed to member households, are available at church, and can also be filled out online. Timely submission is incredibly important to our budgeting process, so your reply by Sunday, November 3 would be greatly appreciated!

Women’s Retreat – Sharon Brown Books

Our 2020 women’s retreat will be led by Sharon Garlough Brown. Among her many other talents, Sharon is the author of the Sensible Shoes books (featuring friends and spiritual companions Meg, Charissa, Hannah and Mara), as well as a new novel, Shades of Light, (about mental illness and spirituality). She will be releasing her 6th novel, Remember Me, just before our retreat.

While it is not necessary to have read any of these in order to fully participate in and enjoy the Women’s Retreat (If you haven’t already signed up for the retreat, you can register here!) many of you have read some of them, and have inquired about others. Since Sharon Garlough Brown will be our retreat leader, her publisher, InterVarsity Press, makes her books available to participants at 50% off retail. If you are interested in taking advantage of this offer, please click here for additional information.

Pew Cushions

A reminder that pew cushions are available for folks to use to make the wooden pews more comfortable during Sunday services. The cushions are stored in wooden boxes in the narthex, and can be returned there at the end of the service. Please feel free to take one (or two) as needed to help soften the time on Sundays.
