Our Church’s Fall 2013 Events and Guests! Don’t miss out!

Happenings Fall 2013


OCTOBER 8
GenderQuest genderquest - renee

If you have gender, you are ON a GenderQuest!  Come join in the
conversation, sharing of experiences, and general support of one another’s dealings with gender…good and less-than-good.  We meet at 6:30pm.

This week, we will view the movie “30 for 30: Renee” – a documentary released by ESPN Films about the life of Renee Richards, a transgender woman who, following transition, sought (and WON!) the right to play in the 1977 US Open.  


Shelly Torres-West
THIS WEEKEND.
OCTOBER 13.

Shelly Torres-West, jazz singer, is joining us for worship at 11:00am, followed by a POTLUCK, and a seminar about LegalShield, for which Shelly is a consultant.  This is an opportunity to experience the smooth sounds of jazz, eat some great food, and learn about a service that will help you navigate legal needs.

Bring a dish to share with your church family.  You do NOT have to stay for the seminar to participate in our potluck lunch!  All are welcome!

Learn a bit about LegalShield before you come!  Click here. >>

“LegalShield has helped me draw up papers for Medical Power of Attorney, my Will, and assisted in providing legal information regarding my rights as a step parent.  Having a lawyer at the ready and as close as a phone call is well worth the service.”  ~ Rev. Mel Martinez   


Downtown Dinner
OCTOBER 15
Downtown Dinner!

Our next Downtown Dinner service is Tuesday, October 15.  Gathering begins at 5:30, and food service begins at 6:00pm.  We will serve until 7:30pm.  WE NEED VOLUNTEERS!  Please join us as soon after 5:00pm to begin set up and ready the church for this most important service.  If you haven’t yet taken the opportunity to serve, make time.  This is as much a blessing for us as servers, as it is for those who are in need of a meal.  See you then!


Creating a Life that Matters
OCTOBER 20
Creating a Life that Matters Begins!

The class for this year’s CLM study is 11 members strong, but can always receive more!  We will have our first class meeting and decide on scheduling further classes as a group.  If you’re interested in attending CLM, please let Pastor Mel know and plan to be at class!  We will meet after church, from 1:30-3:30pm.


Living Through Grief
OCTOBER 26
Living Through Grief: A Seminar for Healing and Wholeness

We all grieve things in life.  For some, the source of our grief is a lost loved one.  For others, the source of grief may be a lost job, a move, a birth, the end of a relationship, even just a change of direction in life.  We grieve so much more than we give ourselves compassion for.  In this  seminar, the Rev. Kay Seitz, a chaplain in Dallas, TX and MCC pastor, will direct us in understanding our grief, embracing one another’s grief in a safe and respect-filled space, and making steps toward healing as we live through grief. 

Join us Saturday, October 26th, at 9:00am (breakfast served at 8:30am) and plan to stay through lunch.  We will enjoy music, sharing, and learning.  Cost is free, but donations for Pastor Kay’s time and provision of food are most appreciated.  Recommended donation:  $20.  Please RSVP (tell us you’re coming) so we can plan correctly for meals.  Click here to RSVP. >>
