Faith News Update for October 17th, 2019

October 20th, 2019 

9:30 am Sunday Worship 
with Holy Communion


2 Samuel 5:1-5; 6:1-5



Movies that Matter this Friday evening (October 18th)!

Join us this Friday night for the 7:00pm showing of  Joker 
at McMenamin’s Grand Lodge Movie Theater in Forest Grove.


You can reserve your seats here…


If you desire, you can also come a little early and order your dinner at the bar upstairs by the theater and it will be brought to your seat before the film.


A note about Joker:

We have heard that this film may not suit everyone’s tastes and has generated a fair bit of controversy. Critics seem to be split about its merits as a piece of cinematic art. If you are not dissuaded from seeing Joker after reading this, this may be your moment to join the Movies that Matter conversation.

David will meet you at the bottom of the stairs after the movie holding a sign that says: Movies that Matter. After we all meet up, we can look for a suitable place to sit down and discuss the film.

Sunday, October 27th is Reformation Sunday!

9:30 Worship with guest preacher, Rev. Ron Werner

followed by a Community Potluck Brunch.


Come join us for worship on Reformation Sunday! We have a special day lined up to celebrate the way God’s Spirit is always encouraging us to re-form and re-shape our lives and practice to best share the Good News in our world.



Our guest preacher will be Rev. Ron Werner. Ron is a pastor and community organizer in Portland, Oregon, where he gathers people to co-create, make meaning, and act together in the world. He is the co-founder of Youth Collectivist, facilitating the startup and sustainability of neighborhood-based ecumenical youth ministries and Awakening Leadership, an interfaith school of clergy and lay leaders. He is a statewide organizer with the Interfaith Movement for Immigrant Justice, accompanying congregations from diverse faith traditions in the work of Sanctuary.



If you were around Community of ChristChurch back at our inception when prayers were written on pieces of paper and placed inside the walls as our building was being re-formed from a warehouse into a church, we extend a special invitation to you to join us. During our worship time, we will honor those prayers that have helped to sustain us in our life together up to the present day, even as we begin adding new prayers to our walls – prayers of wonder, possibilities and hope, as we imagine how God will continue to

re-form us into the future.



We also invite you to bring a dish to share for Potluck Brunch following worship. We encourage you to bring food that reflects something about who you are… an ethnic dish from your heritage, perhaps, or maybe a favorite dish you grew up with or is part of your family tradition.


Saturday, October 26 at 10am. Email Violet for more information. 
RSVP on the Facebook event or use the sign-up sheet
