Virtual Sunday School
Join our Kids and Family Ministry for Virtual Sunday School every Sunday at 10:30am. We will be meeting virtually via the zoom platform, until we can safely meet in person. We will be using the Sparks Bible, which will be provided to every family who doesn't already have one. We will be singing songs, moving our bodies, reading and discussing our weekly bible story, and building relationships with our kiddos. This will be offered weekly on Sunday mornings and recorded and shared with our families via a private YouTube channel so that our families can access them later
TRUNK OR TREAT 10.30 // 6PM
The youth are hosting a trunk or treat and costume contest on Saturday Oct. 30th at 6pm for the whole community! This will be held in the WLLC building lower parking lot. Please come with a decorated trunk and candy for the kids and kids make sure you wear your best costume to the contest. See you then! For those looking to help be on the lookout for a form for volunteer sign up as well as a list of needed supplies. If anyone has an idea of a booth they would like to put together please let me know asap. We are also meeting with the church’s COVID team to make sure we are following all the guidelines for safety.

Volunteers Needed for Church Building Facilities Team!
We would love to have anyone join our team! This might include changing light bulbs, doing walk-through of building periodically to make a list of items to work on, finding ways to make our building more energy efficient, and coming up with creative ways to make our space inviting and enjoyable. If this sounds like something that might interest, please contact the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (503) 656-0110. We would love your help!
PALESTINIAN OILS AND SPICES ORDERS TIME
It's order time again! If you are interested in ordering oils or spices, contact Dianne Eller at email@example.com She will send you the order form that you can fill out and send back to her. Getting orders in early is important due to shipping delays. Please consider helping out Palestinian farmers this year, as the pandemic and Israeli settlers' attacks has made this a very difficult time for them. Your support is greatly appreciated!
Bring a friend and come join us on October 13th and 27th at 7:00pm for a fun, relaxing opportunity to come and meet some of the other mothers and mother figures in our church. This will be a time to learn our stories, share our struggles, get support from one another, and build friendships with other woman of faith. Our first meeting will be outdoors at the Church Labyrinth around a fire pit, so bring a blanket and wear warm clothes. We plan to meet every other Wednesday, though locations may change. We have a pop tent should the weather not hold so plan to come rain or shine. Masking will depend whatever mandate is currently in place and the comfort level of each individual. Contact Bethany Lenihan @ firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

OCTOBER OUTREACH -
CASA of Clackamas County
This month we are partnering with CASA of Clackamas County. Their mission is to train and support community volunteers to provide a voice in court to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the foster care system who need safe and permanent homes.
Donations will specifically help children within our county. Donations to CASA help with training and support of volunteers in Clackamas County. The volunteers go through 35 hours of training before becoming a sworn officer of the court. They then will be appointed to a case of a child in foster care. They advocate for the child’s best interest. They investigate by interview key persons in the child’s life (therapists, teachers, relatives and caregivers) to have a full picture of the child’s needs.
