Heifer Living Market  Nov 4th 

Join us for our annual "Heifer International Sunday".  We will be celebrating  Heifer International's work of seeking to end hunger and care for the earth and have some animal guests with us to demonstrate some of ways Heifer empowers people around the world to sustain themselves through gifts of livestock, trees, bees, fish, training, etc...  Come join us!

Children Are Important to Us!

Children of all ages are welcome and important at Community Church.  Children are welcome in worship and at events and we are working hard to be ever more inter-generational.  In addition to sitting with care givers in worship, we have space (when we are worshiping inside) dedicated for young children in the sanctuary and out in the narthex where the service can still be seen and heard.  Children 3rd grade and younger are also invited to go to a age appropriate sharing and discovery time part way through the service.  This summer children are reading books about different kinds of families and in the Fall we will begin a really exciting curriculum called "A Joyful Path".  Strollers are welcome (please use the front entrance) in the sanctuary, and expectant mother/young children parking is located in the front of the building, if that might help.

 CALL TO CARE WORKSHOP 

We will have a Call to Care workshop on October 20th 10AM-2pm (lunch provided) at the Church.  Called to Care is a resource which helps a church or other organization: 
♦ develop a care-giving program. 
♦ train caregivers. 
♦ continue to develop and support the program and the caregivers.
We hope you can join us if you are interested in this important ministry.
