“Losing Our Religion” Documentary Showing
Tuesday October 22 at 7 p.m in the Sanctuary
Losing Our Religion is a feature length documentary about preachers who are not believers, and what atheists do when they miss church. Allowed access to the 600 members of The Clergy Project, the documentary follows ex-members and clergy who are still undercover. They are not just losing their religion, for many they are losing their friends, community, family and job.
Join film-makers Leif Kaldor and Leslea Mair for a thought-provoking evening, with discussion to follow the showing. No charge, donations accepted, refreshments provided.

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.
Calling all Elders
Come join us for our October Gathering on Wednesday, October 23 from 12:30 - 2:30 In the Church Sanctuary.
What does it mean to be ‘independent’? How can I ask for assistance? When is help not helpful? Most of us highly value our capacity as to act independently and to make our own choices.
We will be sharing strategies and insights, exploring questions, and learning new information about how to handle some of the challenges we encounter. How can we get the support we need and, at the same time, continue to make choices and remain as independent as possible? Come find out!
