Here is the FINAL RevisedOctober-November ROTA.Please be sure to recheck the ROTA! I have made some changes. If you are unable to serve on your scheduled Sunday, please find your replacement, and let me know who your replacement is by 10 am on the Thursday morning before your scheduled Sunday.
When the man heard (what Jesus said), he was shocked and went away grieving, for he had many possessions. Mark 10:22
Jesus suggested that the man give away everything he had...no wonder he was shocked, no wonder he went away, grieving. Jesus' suggestion to each of us, though it may be very different from this this man's, may be equally shocking. What is that suggestion, and how do we feel about it?

On Clarice Ewing's recent trip to Oregon to visit relatives, she had an exiting time fishing in the Columbia River which separates Oregon and Washington. She is pictured here with the 18 pound salmon she caught!
She also visited Multnomah Falls and even climbed to the top! Then she went to see Mount Rainier. Be sure to ask her to show you more pictures and tell you about all of her adventures in Oregon.
Join us for Adult Forum, Sunday, October 10 from 8:45.- 9:15. We’re exploring together "The Way of Love". Join us, a cup of coffee is waiting.
The Way of Love is a way of life. More than a program or curriculum, it is a set of practices in our journey as disciples. Each Sunday we will look at a different practice: Turn, Learn, Pray, Worship, Bless, Go, Rest. All materials will be provided.
