November 2018 Events
Friday, November 2nd ~ 6:00-8:00pm ~ Join us for Sunday School Game Night in the Parish Hall. We will share a dinner of macaroni and cheese (including gluten free) and then play board games. Several will be provided but if you have one you’d like to share, please bring it with you that evening. This is a friend-friendly event so feel free to bring others along! To help us with meal planning, please RSVP at:
Sunday, November 4th & Sunday, November 11th ~ 5:00 - 6:30pm ~ The Middle School Youth group will be working through Rena Rossner's Eating the Bible, making meals for themselves and the high school youth group using recipes from the book that have Biblical significance. If possible, please bring $5 each meeting to cover the cost of food supplies.
Sunday, November 4th & Sunday, November 11th ~ 6:00 - 7:30pm ~ The High School Youth group will continue their "Christian Faith and Practices" curriculum, focusing on community building as a spiritual practice. What does the Christian faith tradition share with other religions regarding issues of charity, service, education and civil engagement? If possible, please bring $5 each meeting to cover the cost of food supplies.
Sunday, November 4th - Sunday, November 25th ~ The Missions & Social Justice Committee will be conducting their annual sleeping bag drive during the month of November to benefit Safe Harbor, a program of the Community Health Center in Burlington which serves our chronically homeless neighbors. The sleeping bags are military grade, designed for below zero temperatures and, unfortunately, are more expensive than they have been in prior years - $65 each. Missions has already purchased 4 bags to get the ball rolling and we are looking for monetary donations to purchase more but will also gladly accept a used sleeping bag that is designed for colder temperatures. The drive will run through November 25th. Let’s make this another great success!
Wednesday, November 7th & Wednesday, November 21st ~ 12:30pm - 2pm ~ Our knitting/crocheting group will meet in the Parish Hall to work on our projects together and enjoy some fellowship time. Bring your project, new or old, or simply bring yourself. All are welcome - including beginners!
