What It Means to be Reformed
11:00 am Sundays in the Conference Room 

The Sacraments, Governance, the Great Ends of the Church ... join in the discussion with former Catholic Brian Malek and Rev. James. 

This church workday got out of hand.
All we said was "do some weeding". 

But we promise to rein in the over-zealous at the upcoming HPPC Work Day and even keep it short. Just 9 - 11, Saturday Oct 30. Nothing more than a little brass polishing, window cleaning, trimming bushes and trees, sprucing up the courtyard space, and yes- weeding.  
Look at that date - Oct. 30 - practically winter!
It'll be great...  And refreshments will be served!

"The Jesus Music" Movie 
AMC Veterans 24

This fascinating documentary reveals Christian Contemporary Music's uplifting and untold story. Jesus music rose from America's 1960s counterculture movement with stirring songs of faith, love and hope to become a worldwide phenomenon.

Love or hate the music, this movie is the Soundtrack of a Movement, and worth a look.
