Upcoming October News & Events
Our church will join the community in the annual Forest Grove Merchants’ Halloween for kids on Saturday, October 31.

Thank you!
*Oct 20th-Senior Lunch: At our last Senior Luncheon we discovered the Talents of the Columbia River by Robin Cody. At our next Senior Luncheon our speaker did not canoe the entire length of the Columbia River to discover her talents – she has displayed them over and over as our Coordinator and our second-in-command inspirer. When Kristy delivered the sermon a couple of times for Pastor Jennifer, we learned much; she challenged our thinking; and sometimes she even got us to do something! Surely Kristy will return from her honeymoon with new insights to share! All are welcome. We hope that those younger than 50 will also attend! For those who join us for the lunch, we appreciate a donation of $5.00. Lunch is at 12:00 noon and the program will begin about 12:35 p.m., Tuesday, October 20, 2015. If you wish to eat the lunch and are not on our senior calling list, please call Dottie Waltz, 503-357-4488. If you want to attend only the program, come at 12:30 pm. Free!
