October 4: To Have Loved

Mary Oliver wrote, “To live in this world you must be able to do three things: to love what is mortal; to hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends on it; and, when the time comes to let it go, to let it go.” All of us face times in our lives when we must let go, as painful as that may be. Join us on Sunday morning, October 4, at 10:30 as we begin our exploration of our October monthly theme, “Letting Go.” David Horst, Minister; Robin Slaw, Director of Lifespan Faith Development; Matt Anderson, Director of Music; and Arthur Eves, Worship Associate, lead this multigenerational service. Rev. Horst’s sermon topic is “To Have Loved.” We welcome guest artist Cyril Bodnar, trumpeter, accompanied by Mr. Anderson on organ and piano.

Immediately following the First Sunday service, the Social Action Committee hosts the monthly soup-and-sandwich lunch to support the Center for Food Action Snack Pack program. The cost is $10 per person and $20 for families. Or just enjoy coffee as part of our regular Coffee Hour. Join an all-ages table conversation to consider the “Essential Questions” and participate in an art project related to the theme. Childcare for infants and toddlers provided  until 1:30.
