Volunteers Needed for Sound Team
The sound team needs 5 more volunteers to help unload/set up and pack/load the sound equipment. Volunteers only do this once every two months and are paired with other volunteers. This small act of service is integral to the worship team being able to practice on time. Please consider helping in this way. You can contact Israel Ruiz or Nate Telus to sign up.

Election 2016 Luncheon
In the face of a particularly complex and divisive campaign season, many are wondering how to approach the upcoming election. While our church never identifies with any political party, policy, or politician, we do want to help people look at government, elections, and citizenship through a biblical lens—even if that perspective leads to differing policy conclusions. Join us on Sunday, October 2, for a message from Scott Seaton on law and politics, followed by a lunch seminar with Stephanie Summers of the Center for Public Justice, a non-partisan organization dedicated to helping citizens follow God’s call to do justice in the public arena.
