Stewardship thought from Father Rand: Where do we "store our stuff" is a major issue for many people. This stewardship season, I'd like to suggest that the best storage place for Christians is not in garages, but in the hearts of those we love, in the ministries of our church, in the homes of our neighbors both close by and far away. Lord, help me store up treasures in heaven.

Legacy Society--As a part of our year round Stewardship program, this is a gentle reminder to remember Prince of Peace in your estate planning.  Two recent examples of parishioners who have done this:Mike and Margie Pavlowsky named Prince of Peace beneficiary on their life insurance policy. Katherine Geeslin left a gift of $11,000 from her estate that was added to our parish endowment.

Vestry Nominations--are being sought for upcoming 3 year term on the Vestry. If you are interested, or know someone who would be a good fit for this commitment, please contact the office@popwh.org

Creating a Dementia Friendly Church--You are invited to attend a workshop on this topic in the Family Center on November 2 from 9-11:30am. If you are interested, RSVP to Anne Lowe by October 31st.
Coming Soon:United Thank Offering (UTO) Through UTO you are invited to embrace a daily spiritual discipline of gratitude. We encourage you to notice the good things that happen each day, give thanks to God for those blessings, and make an offering for each blessing received by using a UTO Blue Box. UTO is entrusted to receive these offerings and to distribute 100% of what is collected to support innovative mission and ministry throughout the Episcopal Church. Hear more regarding this ministry next Sunday and receiveyour BLUE BOX. Contact person - Patti Crawford.

Sunday Morning Program:  
Curriculum includes Christian Music: We'll continue our program of listening to songs and talking about the song lyrics, with references to Bible passages. Forma: Episcopal Church of Los Angeles varied courses of Biblical and fellowship-based study.

This year, on the second and fourth Sundays of the month, we will have separate sections for Middle School and High Schoolers, alternating start times of 9am and 10am. The schedule below hopefully makes this easy to follow! This format should allow each group to have a better understanding of God's word being spoken through them.

October 27 is Family Sunday for Both Groups at 10am. There will be no 9am class that day. This special event begins with breakfast and then a "lesson" just like the "youth" do; parents are encouraged to be involved in the discussion. This will be a great way to meet the other parents in the group. We'd like a huge turnout for this event, please let me know if you can attend.
