Create Your Own Pumpkin Planter Oct. 20

Happy fall from the Flower Guild! Catherine Harrod and Blanche Hilman, representing the flower guild, will be holding a workshop for adults on Sunday, Oct. 20 in the parish hall after each service to show you how to create your very own “living pumpkin”— a small pumpkin with succulents on top!

These are easy to make and can be used for a tabletop decoration or to give as a gift!  A $5 donation would be greatly appreciated to cover costs. Please contact the church office before 10/18 if you’re interested in attending.

 

Stuff That Matters — People

Next Sunday, Oct. 20, the theme for our sermon series “The Stuff that Matters” is People. Grateful, Glad & Giving will host a table in the parish hall with stationary, envelopes, and stamps so that church members can write thank you notes to the important people in their lives.

 

Supplies Available for Coffee Hour Hosts 

Hello, Coffee Hour Hosts!

We have an overabundance of paper plates, napkins, utensils, and tablecloths in the Community Meal closet in the parish hall. If you are hosting a coffee hour, please use these items. The cabinet is on the left and the items are stored on the left side of the bottom shelf. Also, we appreciate your tidying up after the coffee hour.

—Kim Rodekohr, Jr. Warden
