Please join us for a discussion of the process of dying, from both the perspective of the dying person and those who help to take care of him. This is designed to be a useful class, sharing ideas and experiences. Please join us to add your own unique perspective.





What: Start-up Book Group reading 
We Make the Road by Walking 
by Brian McLaren 
When: Thursday mornings, at 10:00 am.
Where: Conference Room, Parish Hall 
This book is organized around the traditional church year giving us a rich study, interactive learning, and the opportunity for personal growth. Each chapter is 4-5 pages long and comes with questions to engage discussion. 4 copies of this book have been purchased and we will read it aloud at the meeting. Each lesson can stand alone. So, come when you are available.
There is a sign-up sheet in Narthex for those interested. We hope you will join us on our “walk”.
Questions: Lorraine O’Heren or Sandi Thompson

Attention: St. Francis Knitters!!
St. Francis has a sweet ministry of providing baby items for Salud Medical Center in Woodburn on Epiphany Sunday in January. Among these are many beautiful knitted baby hats and blankets made by the talented members of our church and community. If you love to knit or want to learn, there are patterns and yarn on the narthex table, but your own favorite patterns would be wonderful also. This is a great time to get out the needles!!
Please contact Jane Domagalski with questions or ideas.

Additional Knitter Alert
Thank you to all who are taking part in knitting baby hats.
We also have the opportunity, as last year, to knit little purple hats to support Legacy Hospitals’ program ”Period of Purple Crying” that seeks to reduce or eliminate, the tragedy of Shaken Baby Syndrome. I will soon have purple yarn on the narthex table for those hats.
If anyone is available:
Legacy needs a knitting helper for an hour at their knit-ins: September 14, September 21, or September 28. If you would be able, please contact me, and I can give you the contact information.
Thanks, Jane Domagalski

Stewardship Sunday, October 1
We will combine the 8:00 am and 10:30 am services into one service beginning at 9:00 am. Please take note and come as we worship and celebrate together.

Stewardship Sunday Brunch will immediately follow the 9:00 am service in the Parish Hall hosted by the Hospitality and Stewardship Ministries. Please come and enjoy this celebration and fellowship.
St. Francis Day October 8
St. Francis will be celebrating the feast day of our patron saint, St. Francis of Assisi. St. Francis saw in all creation - animals, plants, stars, people; the evidence of God’s handiwork. We are honored to share in the name of this beloved saint, and we continually strive to be worthy of his name. People are invited on this day to bring their animals to church for a personal blessing during the church service. It is both a fun, and yet very moving experience to have your little dog, cat, turtle or canary, blessed and honored.
Our special guest on St. Francis Day will be Kathy Loter, who directs the animal assisted therapy program at Dove Lewis Animal Hospital. Donations will go to Clackamas Dog Services.
Donations will go to Clackamas Dog Services.
