Welcome to the Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost!   

Update for Youth & FamilyAnytime the weather holds such that we are able to worship in person, we will also be holding a picnic blanket activity session for our youth, wee ones to middle school, directly after the service.  This will include coloring sheets, games, or simple activities lead by our gracious volunteers.  Additionally, a Youth and Family trip to Libby's Pumpkin Patch is in the works for Sunday Oct. 10th, 1-3pm.  The church will cover the cost for all youth.  Adult tickets are $7.  Please let Jana Hovland know if you plan to attend and with how many youth: 

We are currently planning for worship to be held outside in the sideyard at 10am.  In the event of rain, please join us online instead.  For outdoor worship, we ask you to wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status, and if you are feeling ill, to please attend virtually.  As always, reach out to the office if you would like assistance carrying your chair or to have a chair provided for you.      

The bulletin for this week, including the readings, may be downloaded under "downloads" at the bottom of this post.
