Scottish Communion Sunday

Hey Everyone,

I hope you’re all warm and dry on this chilly, rainy Friday afternoon. We’ve got a busy couple of days ahead of us, so make sure you look over what happening this week.

For those planning on participating in the bonus Trail Hiker Meal tomorrow evening, Saturday, September 16th, here’s the plan. This meal will function very similar to our normal summer hiker meals, but just with less people. If you are planning on joining us for the meal, please arrive at 5:15pm with a side or dessert to share. There’s no official theme, but we’ll be serving pulled pork tacos. And if you’re going to help set up, please be at the Hiker Center at 4:30pm.

This Sunday, September 17th is our first Scottish Communion Sunday, which will mark our transition indoors and our return to celebrating communion. We’ll have a live bagpiper with us, so break out your plaids (and tartans if you have one), and get to church early, because it’s going to be a full service. If you’re joining us for fellowship, consider making (and bringing) your best Scottish shortbread recipe. Trust me, this is a service you don’t want to miss.

Here are your Announcements for the week ahead:

Trail Hiker Center
We’re maintaining our staffing schedule for another week at the Trail Hiker Center. If you’re unable to cover your shift, please let Jason know. Also, if you’re available to help with the noon shuttle run on Sundays or Mondays, please contact Jason.¬†

Wednesday Bible Study 
Join us this Wednesday, September 20th from 5:00pm until 6:30pm in the Presbyterian Annex for our 13th and FINAL session on world religion. This week we’ll be looking at Scientology AND having a wrap up during our Summer’s End Bible Study Potluck. Bring whatever you want or a dish that reflects one of the religions we’ve studied this summer. The dinner will start around 6:00pm (after we finish our last session of the summer).

Trail Hiker Center Volunteer Dinner
If you helped staff the hiker center at anytime during the summer, shuttled hikers, or volunteered at our Trail Hiker Meals, we’d like to invite you to join us for a volunteer dinner on Sunday night, September 24th at 5:30pm. No need to bring anything other than your favorite memory of the summer and any suggestions to help improve the hiker center for next year. Please RSVP to Jason via text or email:
