Women’s Treat Day
Women of SMM! Please join us for a Women’s Treat Day on Sunday November 5th from 11:30am to 4:30pm at the church. This gathering will be in lieu of the annual Women’s Retreat and is being done in abbreviated form in hopes of making it accessible to more of the women in our community. The focus of the day will be to develop and strengthen relationships and connection among one another while also receiving nourishment and nurture as we enter this colder season. Starting with high tea after the 10am service, we will follow with a simple and tangible art offering, and then a session on the mind/body/spirit connection led by the Rev. Sally Bowersox, Episcopal priest and founder of the St. Benedict Health and Healing Ministry. There is no cost to the day and free child care will be provided upon request. RSVP online or use the sign up sheet on the table near the parking lot entrance. We hope you will join us! Contact Courtney Gambrell.
SMM Book Club
2017 CROP Hunger Walk a Huge Success!
Thank you SMM for donating and walking the 2017 CROP Hunger Walk! As a congregation we raised $870.00 to battle hunger in our own community as well as across the globe. Boulder County collected a total of $25,720 so far. If you didn’t get a chance to donate, but would still like to you can do so here. Thank You!
Would you like to bake communion bread? The recipe is simple – making and baking takes about a half hour on Friday evening or early Saturday morning. Deliver the bread to the church before 10:00 am Saturday. It is nice too if you present it at the offertory on Sunday morning, but not necessary. This is a wonderful expression of service and care for your church family! Find the recipe here! Contact Janet Poley to volunteer.
