Announcements and Messages for the Community

Kids N Cookies.  New this fall is our all-ages faith program.  Parents to attend with kids, aunts and uncle to attend with nieces and nephews, grandparents to attend with grandkids…you get the picture.  You may also attend without children.  The program will include scripture readings, fun activities, and of course cookies!  It will be short, about 15 to 20 minutes.  For more details and ways to get involved, contact Bill or Mary Hudson.  

How to Be a Worship Reader.  This participatory one-hour class will provide you with a bit of historical look into the role of readers in worship service, how to become familiar with texts in private, and how to embrace and assume readers’ roles in public. We will read selected texts from the lectern during the session. Contact Pastor Shuji for more details.
