6th Session of "Resistance & Transformation" Adult Education Class: "Religious Freedom on the Margins of Empire"
This session will be co-facilitated by Rev. Melanie, Deanna Vandiver, and Bonnie Schmidt. Our focus will be on the development of congregationalism, and on the question, "Is religious freedom a social justice issue?" You don't have to have attended any other sessions to come to this one. Materials will be available to help folks "catch up" on previous sessions. (Please note the change in location for the next 5 sessions!) Learn More.

Thanksgiving Bread Communion Service
Join us for our annual celebration of diversity and gratitude, with every household in the church bringing bread of their culture or heritage or family background to share. This year we are also remembering those less fortunate than ourselves, by bringing non-perishable food items for the church's Food Pantry. If you are able, please remember to bring some kind of bread to share in the service, and something for the Pantry (examples: canned meats, milk, soup. & vegetables, pasta, cereals, rice, nonfat dry milk, peanut butter, jelly, honey, cooking oil, etc.). We would also be glad to have grocery certificates to be able to distribute to those in need, if you are able.
November 20, 2011 @ 12pm (after the service)

Feeling Ultimate Life & Love (FULL) Group
Thursday, November 24th, Thanksgiving Day
On the day when the people of our country will mark Thanksgiving, families and friends gather to count their blessings over delicious meals. In our church there may be those who do not have family nearby and who have not yet been invited to savor Thanksgiving with others. There may also be those in our church who enjoy enough bounty to invite one or two others to share with them. Please contact the church office if you need a place to go for Thanksgiving dinner, or if you have a place at your table for a friend from the church.
