Next week begins the “Generous Grace” sermon series and our annual Stewardship Drive. You are invited to worship each week to learn and experience how God’s generosity towards us invites us to do the same for others. Please join us Commitment Sunday (28 October) where we will celebrate the generosity of our community with board games, crafts, fellowship, and food.

Socialize with your pewmates! This year’s Cottage Groups are now forming, and will start meeting in October. Up to eight people will meet at a residence to share a meal and get to know one another better; by the end of the night, the next meeting is scheduled with the goal that everyone will take a turn hosting over the next nine months. Cost is minimal, but the experience is priceless! Sign up during Coffee Hour in the next two weeks, or contact Kathy Kullberg (612-374-4456).

WONDER Eucharist, our monthly liturgy for wiggly young worshipers and their families, begins on 7 October at 3:00 pm. This service will include stories, opportunities for play, interactive music, and sacrament. Please bring the little ones in your life to this service held on each first Sunday at 3:00 pm.

Grow your faith and sign up for The Path, Youth Confirmation, The Apostle Paul Class, and more! Sign-up sheets for Faith Formation classes can be found at any information center around the church (underneath the announcement monitors).

The Episcopal House of Prayer in the City invites all to join for their weekly Contemplative Prayer Practice each Monday at 6:30pm in the Auxiliary Classroom. Whether you are looking for a way to revitalize your prayer life or just searching for space and quiet, pray-ers of all abilities are welcome. If you are new and would like an orientation, feel free to come at 6:00 pm.

Change is in the air this fall. Bishop Brian Prior released an announcement Tuesday you can read here.
