Calling all ministry team conveners! Please join the first part of the Church Council meeting on Wednesday, November 3 from 6:45-8pm to talk about our shared priorities for the year and how we can support each other in our ministry. Thank you for the many ways you serve United Parish.

United Parish has formed an ad-hoc, one-year provisional Financial Planning Team to create a long-range plan for the overall fiscal health of our community.

Our third (and perhaps final, weather-depending) Outdoor Family Worship will be happening on HALLOWEEN! Worship will begin on the Front Lawn at 9:45am, where we'll sing, pray, learn about the story of Esther, and celebrate our own identities together.

On Sunday, November 7, we will commemorate All Saints Day. We welcome receiving the names of saints in your lives (loved ones, family, friends, mentors) to print in the bulletin and read aloud in worship.

From the Human Relations Ministry Team:
