Midweek Update – October 10, 2018

On Sunday, our worship service will include communion. Usually, we celebrate World Communion on the first Sunday of October. This year, we pushed it back one week while Pastor Julie and I were off. Let’s assume that the Spirit is connecting us to our brothers and sisters around the world every Sunday and every moment!
Thank you to Elder Fred and Deacon Todd and Jenya and everyone else who covered worship while we were away. I was in California with the Enneagram Prison Project. I am too tired at this moment to tell you about that trip, but I will say that God keeps moving in my heart and through this program to change me, change lives, and spread grace in the world. Tomorrow, I and my EPP colleague will be starting our third class at Shakopee Women’s Prison. This seems like a miracle to me.
We are so looking forward to being with you all on Sunday. The text is from Mark 10:17-31, where Jesus asks us to think about where our treasure is. If you want something to think and talk about before Sunday, here is a question for you:
• What messages did you get from your parents or care-givers about money?
Feel free to write these messages out and consider whether those messages are still serving you or if they are limiting or burdening you in some way.

The next backwoods workday will be Saturday morning, October 20, when we plan to start (& finish??) covering the meditative pathway, clear more brush, and other projects. This will be fun and easy with lots of people, so we hope everyone can be there!
If you have a wheelbarrow and/or pitchfork to bring, please let Pastor Phil know.

We are continuing to collect personal care items for our All Church Mission Project. I’ve attached the shopping list if you haven’t yet had time to bring in your donations. Bags will be packed and prepped during worship on Sunday, October 21. Monetary donations can also be given to purchase any additional items that we need, please make checks out to EPC with “mission project” in the memo line. The goal is to collect enough items to fill 50 bags.

THIS Saturday from 1-4pm, everyone is invited to an Art Play time! Bring a journal, sketch book or some paper. We will do some totally free-for-all, no-judgment messing around with art supplies. There will be lots of supplies to share so don't sweat this. If this doesn't grab you bring whatever you like to do such as knitting, embroidery or whatever. All ages welcome.
Led by Carol Schweickhardt who would REALLY like to know how many are showing up. Please text or email her at or text to: 651-468-9888.

This Sunday will be the last chance to make updates on the Church Directory in the narthex. Or: contact Lois in the church office
