October is Breast Cancer Month and Domestic Violence Month.  The challenges of both profoundly impact our community.  This month our worship will include raising awareness of these issues and we will hold those who are impacted by either in our thoughts and prayers.

"Shining A Light on Domestic Violence"

In the past few weeks our attention has been drawn to domestic violence against women and children because of the highly visible cases of professional football player perpetrators, but every day in our own community, women, men, and children suffer verbal and physical abuse and often endure it in silence. It is a painful topic to discuss, particularly for those who have been victims. We do so this morning with the hope that by shinning the light of truth and by bringing our compassion and the principles of our faith to this problem, we can help those who are in abusive situations.  In addition to our worship service this morning,  there will be a forum in our community room after each service to learn more about this problem in our community, how to get help, and the what each of us can do to help those who are the victims of violence.

All Souls Day is a day of remembrance for those loved ones we have lost, especially those who died in the last year.  With words and beautiful music from our choirs, soloists, and instrumentalists, we will bring them close again.  Everyone is invited to bring a photo or memento of a deceased loved one to help us create our beautiful "All Souls Day Altar of Remembrance." At the end of the service we will plant daffodils in front of the church, so that they may rise up in the spring to remind us how the loved ones who have died live on with us in spirit. Visitors, especially those who have lost a loved one recently, are invited to join us and participate in this beautiful service.
