October 2020 Horizons

Look forward to a fun month of celebrations at church! Don’t we all need some things to lift our spirits?

October 3-4 will be a Celebration Weekend to include a drive thru Blessing of the Animals Saturday morning combined with the opportunity come by and pick up individually packaged communion elements (wafer and small cup of juice) to share in our World Communion Sunday worship the following day. Bring your PET(S) to Sunday ZOOM Coffee Hour to be blessed!

On October 11, we will celebrate the 145th Anniversary of First UMC Santa Monica!
We have persevered through many challenges over the years and through it all continue to praise God and serve God’s people near and far. Plan to participate in another “Town Hall” discussion with me during Coffee Hour.

Our wonderful Lay Leadership Team (Sherry (Leigh) Erlandson, Todd Erlandson, Jocelyn Hicks-Garner, and Mike Olsson) has prepared and will lead worship on October 18, that includes both familiar elements and an interactive sermon/
reflection time.

AND on Sunday, October 25, we will award 4th Grade Bibles and celebrate our wonderful Sunday School Teachers. You are also invited to WEAR YOUR HALLOWEEN COSTUME to ZOOM Coffee Hour! What could be more fun than that?!?

Read through this issue of the Sentinel for more fun and engaging opportunities.
The Spirit moves through the life of the church to revive our souls and bring smiles to
our lips and hearts.
