Spirit of Life celebrated snow days by sharing their best photos and videos of God's beauty. We may have been stuck at home for a few days, but we celebrated by getting outside and enjoying the peace. Our dogs and kids definitely had a good time!

Tuesday, November 2 at 6 pm is the book club discussion at JoAnn's house.
We have two books available for pick up in the church office for Reading Faith Into It. The first we will read and discuss is Light of the World by Elizabeth Alexander. Second book will be The Chosen by Chaim Potok and will be reviewed a few weeks later.
We are looking forward to hosting another successful trunk or treat at Spirit of Life on Saturday, Oct. 30. So far we have 13 trunks and we would love more! If you would like to host a trunk, please sign up in the binder in the church office or give the office a call, 360 876 5094. As was the case last year, we're going to do our best to maintain social distancing to keep everyone safe. If you're going to host a trunk, please consider devising a treat delivery method. Ideas have included a length of PVC pipe, a kiddie fishing pole, even a long handled spoon or small shovel could work.
Our study of the book of Jonah continues after worship, and you are invited to join. We started the study on October 10th with a great discussion led by Trevor Boe about the overall book and story Jonah and contemplated some history and relationships. It was a rich and interesting conversation. You can join in-person at church or online (Zoom). If you would like to review the material we'll be using, it can be found here.
Questions? Contact Trevor or the church office.
The zoom link is sent out in the weekly Thursday email and the Zoom room will open at 11:15. Sign up for the weekly newsletter here.
