The Stations of the Cross, Thursday, October 13, 11:00am: Please consider joining us to walk the Stations at the Weikert's. We stop for a reading and a prayer at each tree where a plaque is hung. We will be using the very personal “Everyone’s Stations of the Cross” instead of the more familiar Holy Week “The Way of the Cross”. Our path is a moderate climb, eased by a zigzag pattern, up a hill. Sturdy shoes are a must.

This event is suitable for all ages. Please bring a bag lunch. The deck can be lovely in fall. The Weikerts will provide beverages. If you have any questions, please call Tom or Lee at 644-0382 or email at eklktcwe@earthlink.net. The address is 4110 Sierra Springs Drive, Pollock Pines. Directions will be available at church. If the weather turns rainy we will move indoors

Onsite Services: Mask wearing optional. Safe distancing must be observed. While it is always wise to stay home when you are feeling cold or flu symptoms, it is especially important now if you have any symptoms for cold, flu or COVID-19. Possible COVID symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, night sweats, sore throat, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, tiredness, muscle or body aches, headaches, confusion, or loss of sense of taste/smell.

Coffee Hour:  We have a coffee hour after each service, with beverages only, served in disposable cups. Pull up a chair and visit.

~~~

Recycling: Bring your CRV bottle and can recyclables to church.  Place them in the bins in the Robing Room (that area outside the Parish Hall bathroom).  Boyd Roberts will collect them and the funds from the returns go to the church.

~~~

Discretionary Fund: Rev. Debra maintains a Discretionary Fund that she can use to provide assistance as needed. She can provide emergency assistance for food, transportation, and help with medical bills. The Vestry provides some funding for this every year, but additional donations would expand what Rev. Debra can do during the year. Donations may be made to Church of Our Saviour, with "Discretionary Fund" in the memo line.
