Living Stones – Sunday, Oct. 22
October is kickoff month for the capital campaign, “Living Stones.” We’ll be asking for commitments on October 22.
The ovens will be on for the celebration potluck on October 22 right after worship. Any and all are welcome! Let us know on the sign-up sheet (or email the office) what you will be bringing.
Plant Sale and More
Ease outdoor gardening withdrawal by picking up an indoor plant to nourish and enjoy during the cold weather months that are fast approaching. On Oct. 22 before and after worship there will be plants, fall garden decor (including gourds, Chinese lanterns and broom grass) and various treats available for purchase through a donation to Community Emergency Service. Among the offerings will be beautiful violets in vintage pots, a lovely jade plant, a large scheflera and various ivies and smaller plants, all easy to grow! Green plants can enhance your work space and also make great hostess or birthday gifts. Food items will include Halloween sugar cookie cutouts and caramel apples. All funds raised will support the Home Delivery Program at St. Paul’s Home, a monthly food shelf outreach involving First Church volunteers.
