Thank you to everyone who participated in and attended this year’s Harvest Brunch, it was a great success! The brunch entrees, pastries, fruits and juices were a delight, the fellowship was even more so! A huge shout out to the Fellowship Committee for making it all happen: Sally Bastine, Leslie O’Connell, Elaine Price, Pat Prophet and Susan Wisen. Thank you to the many helpers who helped clean up and break down the room. We look forward to our next event, the reception after the 10 AM Youth/Children led Christmas Worship service on December 9.
Happening this Saturday, November 10th:
Men’s Breakfast Club meets @ Emerald Heights @ 8 AM!
Books on the Dinner Table is a women’s group that will let you bring your reading to the dinner table. Our first book discussion dinner was so good that we decided to have a part two and finish discussing Inspired: Slaying Giants, Walking on Water, and Loving the Bible Again by Rachel Held Evans (available in paperback, ebook, and audio). We will meet this Saturday, November 10th from 6-8 pm. New members are welcome. Please RSVP so we can plan for a place to have dinner – Juliann Phillips, email@example.com or 206-419-1050.
Knit One – Pray Too is a group for anyone who likes to knit or crochet. We meet one Saturday, 10 – 11 am at church. Upcoming knitting times: November 10, and December 9. We have made prayer shawls for RCP members and friends and lots of hats for children and adults that are donated to various groups in the area. You can also just join us to work on your own projects and enjoy the fellowship of other fiber enthusiasts. Don’t know how to knit? There are many in our group who are happy to get you started. If you have more questions or would like to be added to our email reminder list, please contact Juliann Phillips, firstname.lastname@example.org

RPC will once again host the FoodBox Program, in conjunction with Redmond Nourishing Networks
Last year, Redmond Nourishing Networks began a program to provide supplemental food for families whose children receive free and reduced lunch during long school breaks. RPC was the host for people dropping off and picking up food. This year, we will host the program once again. In addition, we are adding 2 more schools so we will need lots more food. So, in addition, we would love to have RPC families participate in donating food as well. Our first day with be Tuesday Nov. 20th. Food drop offs begin @ 7am.
Children grades 3-5 are invited to participate in our communion class Sunday December 2 from 11:15-11:45am. The class will be hosted in the same room as Sunday school, room 14 of the CE building. After class is over, we will return to the sanctuary where children will participate in communion with the congregation. Hope you can join us!
