Weekly Staying Connected While Apart
Week of September 28 - October 4
Dear Church -
Can you believe that we are already coming into the month of October? We've officially been in Fall for a month already. Only recently, are you starting to feel the sadness of leaving summer. Going to the river, vacation, blueberry picking, water activities, the warmth of the sun, wearing slippers, worshipping outside! But, look at these great things about the Fall ...
Apple and pumpkin flavored everything
Sweaters and boots make a reappearance
Leaves start to change colors
Pumpkin patches are the best
Classis movies come on
Reading books in front of a cozy fire
Let's not lose sight of the God who created the seasons - both in nature and in our personal lives. No matter what "season" we are in - there are good/God things in store for us.
In this newsletter - look for new ways to connect, learn, and grow. We don't want to live in any season alone - God has given us His love, a community, and a purpose - let's stay in fellowship.
Majors Celestine and Shoshannah
Church Family Chat
Hi all! We've decided that instead of Life Groups, we're going to keep connected and grow into Life Groups in time. What is a simple way to connect? We want to do a church Family chat - grab your household, click on the Zoom link, to join us Thursdays from 6:00 - 6:30 pm to say hi and pray. It's an easy way for us to be in each others lives and hopefully keep it short enough so we don't feel online fatigue!! This starts THIS Thursday, October 1st. Here's the link.

Senior Soldiership Classes on Zoom - You can still join
*** Several people are interested in these classes - so it's not too late to join. At this time, we are only doing classes on Zoom to accommodate schedules. ***
Zoom Senior Soldership/Salvation Army 101 Class on Mondays @ 6 pm, starting September 28. Taking the classes is not a commitment to become a soldier (church member) - but rather for believers to learn more about The Salvation Army and it's doctrine. We do ask that you make a commitment to these classes from September 28 - November 30 (10 meetings, once a week maximum). The classes may end earlier depending on how the discussion and instruction goes.
Click here to join the classes. The classes will be no longer than 1 hour each time.
