Welcome, welcome everyone!

Chalice Weekly Family Update
October 15, 2020

October’s theme is… Deep Listening

Sunday Morning Service at 10am 

 Listening for the Truth
with Rev. Nica Eaton-Guinn



In the midst of all the noise in our world, social media hype, conspiracy theories, fake news and lies, how do we discern what’s true? Does truth even exist? Today we explore the spiritual practice of listening for the truth.

Family Chapel – Sundays 9-9:30am


Enjoy music, stories, and checking in with friends. Ideal for younger children through 3rd grade but all are welcome!

**There will be no Family Chapel held November 1. Instead we will hold an Intergenerational event during our Ancestors service at 10am.**

Crossing Paths –  Catholicism begins Sunday, November 1!

Registration for the November sessions begins October 10



Open to 4th through 8th graders, we explore a different religion each month through videos, discussions, and activities. This is highly recommended to youth in 7th and 8th grade, offering a strong base when they begin Coming of Age in the 2021-22 church year.

Did you know… October is Clergy Appreciation Month!

Clergy Appreciation Day falls on the second Sunday in October, but luckily, we get a whole month to appreciate our amazing Rev. Nica! Send her a little note letting her know how she has brightened your life or the life of Chalice, or maybe just to let her know she’s awesome. Hand drawn art and notes from children are always a thoughtful gift for a minister who loves our families.

Thank you, Rev. Nica, for being the sunshine in our congregation!

Why are vampires so easy to fool?

Because they’re suckers!
