Alphabet of Gratitude—This November, we practice gratitude together using the alphabet! Materials for all ages are available in the lobby, and we will also share access via email. Bring completed books to church at the end of November for a special prize!
In worship next Sunday, Nov. 12th, we invite you to submit your stewardship pledge for 2024. A pledge is an estimate of how much you think you will give financially to the church in the year ahead. Pledge cards are available in the pew racks, on the table in the lobby, and you can also pledge online.
The Second Half Architects Group is off to a great start, and new members are welcome at any time! So far they have covered Chapter 1 of From Strength to Strength, discussing our successes and experiences of life so far and things we think about for the future. We discussed the unavoidable declines of some skills and improvements of others over time.
The next meeting is Tuesday, November 7, at 6:00 pm at Water’s Edge Winery. Please read Chapter 2 (The Second Curve) and think about these concepts for discussion: fluid intelligence and crystallized intelligence.
