Bible Presentation: We celebrate another milestone in the lives of our young people with the gifting of a Bible to grow in God’s word. Students new to our programs, children transitioning from nursery to KidsWord, and children in grade 4 received Bibles on September 24. Please contact Sue, Director of Christian Formation if you need one.
Sunday, October 8 Blessing of the Animals: You are invited to bring your pets to sit with you during the 10am service! All pets should be leashed or in a cage/crate. Alternately, you can bring a photo of your pet on your smartphone, or in a frame, or even a stuffed animal to be blessed.

Four Elements of a Faith Milestone:
- Naming the sacred and ordinary events that are recognized in our daily lives
- Equipping brings generations together, builds community, invites conversation, encourages storytelling and provides information
- Blessing the individual and marking the occasion in a worship service and in the home
-Gifting is a tangible, visible item that serves as a reminder or symbol of the occasion being marked, as well as a resource for the ongoing nurture of faith in daily life
