A Message from the Stewardship Team

“Sing to God a new song,
for God has done marvelous things.
Let the floods clap their hands; 
let the hills sing together for joy.”

The session will be led by Pastor Miriam, Certified Advanced Labyrinth Facilitator. This time is open to all, whether you’ve walked a labyrinth in the past or not. We ask that you register for each event. Please have a Finger Labyrinth available - you can download a paper version if you don't have your own or Jamie in the church office. Join us!

Do you care about creation in this time of global warming? Do you see a connection between environmental stewardship and the Christian faith? You are invited to join in a 5-part study on consecutive Wednesdays at 1 p.m. through November 18.  We are using resources from a series called Being Reformed, and our class title is Stewardship of Creation.  Please contact the church office to sign up. This class is led by Glenn Leupold.

You are encouraged to vote in the upcoming general election.
Vote Early!   (Now through Sunday, November 1st)
If you want to make sure your vote is counted with all the other votes that are cast on Election Day, but do not want to go to the polls in person on Election Day, one option is to vote early in person at any of the following early voting locations:
(confirmed with Elections Commissioner Matt Clyne that any registered voter in the City of Albany can vote early at any of the 6 early voting locations listed above between October 24th and November 1st.)
Hours for early voting at all early voting locations are:
Saturday & Sunday: 9am-2pm
Monday & Wednesday: Noon-8pm
Tuesday, Thursday & Friday: 9am-5pm
This gives you 9 different days to vote and an ability to pick which day, time and location is most convenient for you.
