September 22nd: To Dwell, To Seek, To Grow
Service Leaders: Rev. Meghann Robern, DLFD Andrea James, and Music Director PJ Buchan
Service Coordinator: Marian Siemens
We celebrate our ingathering once again with our annual Water Communion tradition, and we will covenant with our 2019-20 Board of Directors.
For this multigenerational service, please bring water from a source that has meaning for you -- an example might be from the hose you use to water your garden. This service will also be followed by the annual Ingathering All-Congregation Potluck. Signups for potluck setup and cleanup will be forthcoming in the all-church email.
Hymns: 92 Mysterious Presence, Source of All; 1007 River Flowing in My Soul; 1034 De Noche; 94 What Is This Life (Hymn of the Month)
From the Minister's Study - September 2019
As many of you know, our Director of Lifespan Faith Development, Andrea James, has begun her twelfth year of service with us. She has demonstrated over and over again her dedication to our community and to our shared ministry together. To support her continued growth and learning as our DLFD, the Board of Directors has granted her a four-month sabbatical this year, from the beginning of December to the end of March.
This congregation has worked hard to live into the reality of being a fair and just employer of its professional staff, and one of the ways we do this is by taking into consideration the guidelines given by our professional organizations. In the area of faith development and religious exploration, we turn to the Liberal Religious Educators’ Association (LREDA for short). This is what their guidelines offer us about sabbaticals:
Adult Drop In Monthly Theme Discussion
On Saturday September 14th from 10:00 to 11:30 AM we will be meeting in the Living Room to discuss the theme for September which is "Work and Play" with other adults. This is your chance to have an in-depth discussion about the theme of the month.
Childcare will be provided, so bring them with you if that works better for you. Please let Odell know ahead of time if possible.
Begin the busy fall season with a time of quiet, reflection, and peace. This self-directed Meditation Group is open to all members and friends of the congregation. No meditation experience is necessary. Drop by when you can. Meditation will be held the following Mondays, 7:00 - 8:30 pm in the living room.

Hospitality Setup Sign-up Sheet
We need some volunteers to help with Sunday mornings for hospitality set up - we are at risk of losing this wonderful part of our time together.
We all enjoy our tea and coffee hospitality after the Sunday service - it is an important part of community building, catching up with friends and making new friends. Please help keep our morning hospitality happening. We are in big need of people to volunteer for the set up each Sunday. The time commitment is approximately 45 minutes before church and under an hour afterwards for clean up.
Use this easy-to-use online Hospitality Setup Sign-up Sheet to sign up for a Sunday or two now and give it a try - it's fun and you meet great people.
Please help keep our morning hospitality alive and well for all to enjoy.
