Our fall work day is from 9-12. Bring your rakes and some Windex to help clean up and make the place *sparkle*.

At 6:30 Madden Hall will be transformed for our annual Halloween party. Wear your costume and come on out for a great time of games, refreshments and fun.
Ornaments celebrating our 150th anniversary just arrived this week! Elaine and Carol will be showing them in the vestibule on Sunday. Take a look, place an order or purchase now for $12 each. Many thanks to Louise and her son, Ken, for their technical advice and graphic design!

In All Seasons – Read Romans 14:7-9
I enjoy trees in every season. In spring they are beautiful with new green leaves, fresh and lovely. In summer they are thick with green foliage and give refreshing shade. In autumn the leaves change color, creating a wonderful tapestry of yellow, orange, red, and brown. In winter the bare branches of the trees stand silhouetted against the blue sky of sunset. And when there is a frost or a snowfall, how incredibly beautiful the trees look! In every season, trees have great beauty.
So it is with our lives. We are beautiful in God's sight throughout our lives. God delights in us as children in the springtime of life, as young adults in the summertime of life, as more mature people in the autumn of life, and as older people nearing the end of our earthly life.
And though trees appear to be dead in winter, we know they are not; their life will be revealed again in spring. Likewise we know that though we die, yet shall we live in heaven with God, through faith in Jesus Christ.
