Upcoming Events

We have a lot of activities coming up this fall! Here is a handy calendar that will be updated regularly. Keep checking back for updates and details.

October Senior Luncheon

Retired friends, it’s time to mark your calendars for the next Senior Luncheon – Tuesday, October 3, 12:30 p.m. at the church. We’ll share a potluck Mexican meal, which is sure to spark our taste buds and conversation.

Carol Stirling will share her story of growing up with parents who were deaf at a young age. As the oldest of seven siblings, the job fell to Carol to interpret for her parent in myriad situations.

We look forward to gathering with friends!


Ada County CROP Walk

The Ada County CROP Hunger Walk will be held on October 15, 3:00 pm, Julia Davis Park, Agriculture Pavilion (shelter between the Bandshell and the Zoo on green belt/river side). The 3-mile loop begins on the greenbelt then switches to streets downtown and then back to Julia Davis Park for return. A one-mile loop will be available for those unable to walk the longer distance.
Looking to make a difference in our local community and in communities worldwide, the Ada County CROP Hunger Walk has set a goal of 150 Walkers from area churches, and hopes to raise $30,000 to help end hunger and poverty through long-term sustainable approaches to significantly reduce or eliminate hunger.

Seventy-five percent of the funds is given to Church World Service. Church World Service is a faith-based organization transforming communities around the globe through just and sustainable responses to hunger, poverty, displacement and disaster.
A quarter of the funds raised will go to the Idaho Foodbank, whose mission is to help feed, educate and advocate for Idaho’s hungry through collaborative partnerships to develop efficient solutions that strengthen individuals, families and communities.

Artistic Interpretation of Scripture - Sunday, October 22nd

You, as a creative, may interpret Romans 15:13 artistically, whether 2D or 3D or musically or however you are inspired: just let me, Gretchen Weitemier (Artist in Residence curating the show) know!


Romans 15:13

May the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.


This year 2D artwork may be up to 2 feet big. We have a new display system this year that is the reason why all 2D work must be framed and ready to hang securely with a wire on the back, please. 

The final date of submission of your art to the church office is October 15th, the Sunday prior to the show. Please no exceptions.

Perhaps you might consider setting personal goal dates leading up to the submission deadline so that you feel comfortable with the timeline and your ability to complete your work, as announcement reminders for the show will not occur frequently.

Please let me know if and when you and/or your family members decide to participate by Sunday, October 1st. You can email me at grettybetharts@gmail.com.

Best wishes for your spiritually inspired expression! The congregation will be so excited to experience what you do! This is holy work!

-Gretchen Weitemier, Artist in Residence 


October Book Club

The Book Club will discuss "Passing" by Nella Larsen when we meet on Tuesday, October 10, at 1:00 pm at the Church.  The book summary:  Clare Kendry leads a dangerous life. Fair, elegant, and ambitious, she is married to a white man unaware of her African American heritage and has severed all ties to her past. Clare's childhood friend, Irene Redfield, just as light-skinned, has chosen to remain within the African American community, but refuses to acknowledge the racism that continues to constrict her family's happiness.


All are welcome; please join us!
