Our Outreach Committee continues to collect Children's School Supplies. Thank you to those of you that have donated, and we hope to collect even more supplies during the next few weeks. This year your donations will be more important than ever because as the children return to school they will not be permitted to share their supplies with other children, such as pencils, crayons, etc.
If you would like to donate to our Children's School Supplies, please donate only:
You may drop off your donations at the church on Fridays from 8:00 AM to 12:00 Noon.
If you have questions regarding our Children's School Supplies Fund, please call Pauline Gregg at 760-574-5658.
Please note, our church office hours have changed. Effective this week, our office will be open on Fridays only from 8:00 to 12:00. Our reduced hours are due to the continued Covid concerns here in our area.
Our events this week remain the same as our previous weeks: (be very brief in announcing the events as they have been held for every weeks for quite some time).

|Prelude||Cleanse Me||Alex Danson|
|Call to Worship (Responsive)||Elder John Evans|
One: All who hungerÂÙ
|Opening Hymn||Here In This Place (11/3/19)||Hymn #401|
|Prayer of Adoration & Confession (Responsive)||Elder John Evans|
One: Let us call upon the Lord,
who leans close to hear our prayers,
for God is lavish in showing love
and gracious when our feet stray from right paths.
All: God of abundance, in your hands
meager offerings become bread to feed a multitude.
Your mercy overflows to fill deserted landscapes
with hope and grace.
In you there is always more than enough.
But we see only scarcity:
too few resources to share with our neighbors,
too little energy to respond to those in need.
We turn from those who suffer
rather than offering compassion and care.
Transform us, we pray.
Open our hands to share freely and generously
and stretch our hearts to new expressions of love.
|(A moment for silent reflection)|
|Assurance of Forgiveness (Responsive)||Elder John Evans|
One: Like a fountain flowing free,
Christ has compassion for us
and heals us of our brokenness.
All: May this grace fill and sustain us,
spilling over to bless others!
One: In the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven!
All: In the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. Thanks be to God.

For thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.
