Youth Formation ... 4th-7th Grade
Sunday, November 1 is All Saints' Day! Children will be in the classrooms this week learning about Baptism and the story of Jesus' baptism by John in the Jordan River. Parents, this would be a great week to talk with your children about their baptism. Show them pictures and let them ask questions about this day.
The Coffee House will be open this Sunday and we will be discussing sainthood and baptism. Join us in the youth room from 9:50 to 10:35 a.m.

We will be working outside and doing some fall clean-up at their offices in NW DC. Please dress for being outside and bring gloves. Sign-up at the church or let contact Sue
