Sunday Adult Forum
The Forum continues at 9:00 am in the Lounge. This fall, until the First Sunday of Advent, we will examine and discuss the Gospel readings: what do they offer for our consideration about values in the world today and choices in our lives? Led by Fr Charles.

2014-15 Church School
Church School is under way! Missed registration? It's never too late to join! If you have any questions or would like to register, please contact Carol Ferguson, Director of Children and Youth Ministries.
Church School Day and Open House
The entire parish is welcome to join the Church School for our annual Open House on Sunday, October 26 at 11:30 am. Please visit the classrooms, meet the dedicated teachers and learn about our program. Special treats and refreshments of the autumn season are for the sharing in fellowship with family and friends.
Our Young Adults in the Church (YAC) will be starting this special day with a YAC Liturgy at both the 8:00 and 10:00 am services. Members of the YAC class undertake most roles in the liturgy and have prepared the sermon. This is their opportunity to thank the parishioners for their support, to share their spiritual experience and learnings, and be welcomed by the congregation into their adult ministries as stewards in the life of the parish.
A special Pilgrimage 2014 video presentation follows the 10:00 am service in the Chapel. Members from YAC will be on hand to answer questions and share more moments of how their Pilgrimage and other experiences have impacted them and their faith journey. The video runs continuously, so please join us at any time.
Guest Teachers Needed
Faith formation is a process of discernment. The Church School and Journey to Adulthood is interested in sponsoring guest teachers to share their stories. The youth groups in particular are eager to hear about your passions, your spiritual journey, an epiphany, or your outreach initative.
Please contact Carol (663-0518 ext. 202, firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like more information on how your experience can provide a meaningful message to our children and youth.

The 2015 Episcopal Church Calendars, both Ordo and Regular, have arrived; they are $6.00 each and feature a photo of the acolytes on Easter. They can be found in the lobby, near the chapel.

Permits are available at no cost from the church office during office hours or after services on Sundays. Vehicles without permits WILL BE TOWED

Hymn 602: Jesu, Jesu, fill us with your love
Hymn 602 uses Jesus' example of washing his disciples' feet as a call to wide-ranging, inclusive, and mutual service. The text also reminds us that we are all neighbors to each other. The very existence of this hymn demonstrates our relationships with Christians around the world: both text and tune come from Ghana. The lilting folk tune was collected in northern Ghana in the late 1950s and is, as the Hymnal Companion describes it, a melody "in which the words could ride with the greatest ease." The form of Jesus' name used in the first line is pronounced "Yay-zoo." --Donna Wessel Walker
Love Divine, All Loves Excelling - Philip Ledger
This morning's anthem is a setting of Charles Wesley's (1707-1788) famous hymn. The hymn's incipit (opening line) is a play on the opening line of John Dryden's (1631-1700) poem "Fairest Isle, All Isles Excelling." Percy Dearmer, who along with Ralph Vaughan Williams published The English Hymnal in 1906, notes "how few of the earlier hymns dwelt on the thought of God as Love" and attributes the enduring popularity of this hymn "to the fact that it does address God in this way." --Dennis Powers
