Living as a saint...
View this email in your browser

On the Christian calendar, this Sunday is known as All Saints Day. This does not mean that only saints can come to church - or does it? Depends what we mean by “saint”. Is a saint defined by that with which they fill their life or by what they leave out? Or something else?

As part of our engagement with this question, the Rev. Keith Howard will look at the Sabbath: Part II, “Living as a Saint”

This Sunday there will be music, laughter, tears, the celebration of Communion and the possibility of a new orientation towards an abundant life. 

See you in church on Sunday!

~ Rev. Michelle and Rev. Keith

This Week in Our Children and Youth Ministries...

Our age-specific children and youth Sunday ministries are offered this Sunday! We gather at 10am for prayer, song, sacred story, reflection and response (for about 20 minutes), before being invited to move to separate places and ways of being together.

Preschool Church will be led by Simon and Frances, Children's Church will be led by Jasmine and Reyna, and Youth Church will be led by Zach.

More details about our fab children and youth ministry are here. Check the church calendar for our youth events, and check out our general youth group page here.
