I was impressed with our youth yesterday; they were very welcoming and inclusive to the ten visiting youth from the local Unitarian Universalist congregation. Thanks to Shantel for providing treats, with enough to go around for our visitors, too.

For those of you going out of town for Thanksgiving, safe travels this holiday weekend! For families planning to attend Worship Sunday, please let me know if your youth can help out with the Minute for Mission at either service. I will provide the script but am in need of youth acting skills!

Please take a minute to put the November & December youth happenings on your family calendar.

COFFEE OR BAGEL RUN
Sunday, November 25th, 10:10 - 11:10 A.M.
For those in town, we'll drive over to a local coffee shop or walk over to Einstein's (depending on the weather) in lieu of Sunday School.

MINUTE FOR MISSION

SUNDAY SCHOOL:
Sundays, 10:10 A.M. - Loft
We are currently journeying through the Old Testament and learning to take the Bible seriously without taking it literally. Last Sunday, we talked about the book of Ruth which went great with Scott's sermon!

If you are available to bring brunch treats (donuts, bagels, muffins, fruit, etc. for 12 youth - 1 person is gluten free), the hungry teens would appreciate it!  Please sign up for a Sunday that works for you! Sunday Brunch Treat Sign Up

Happy Thanksgiving!
