This Sunday, October 30, we gather to be engaged by the Reformation proclamation of God’s generous grace given so that we might be free to live as creatures in God’s creation. Worshippers are invited to wear RED which signs the Holy Spirit’s presence in our midst. Two Confirmands - Valentina and Kyra – will Affirm their Baptisms at the 11:00 am service. In between services there will be cake and treats as we congratulate them as they join us as adult members in the mission and ministry we share.
