October Greetings~

As we move further into fall, our church’s “cup runneth over” with interesting and inviting activities. There’s been a large turn out for the Monday evening Relax, Renew, Meditate yoga and contemplative prayer sessions led by Rosemary Peters.  And our vibrant FaithLife group meets one Sunday evening a month. We’ll also be hosting two Coffee Hour Conversations, one of which encourages you to “read ahead” as follows…

You’re invited to read, If the Oceans Were Ink: An Unlikely Friendship and a Journey to the Heart of the Quran, a book about the friendship between author, Carla Powers, and Sheikh Mohammad Akram Nadwi. CONTINUE READING
