FALL TAIZÉ

Our Taizé Service of Healing and Wholeness continues this next month on October 10th. The final Taizé services of the Fall will be held on November 14th. Each service will be followed by a light supper in the Fellowship Hall. We look forward to having you and your friends join us for this contemplative and meditative service.   We will continue our Taizé series weekly during the Season of Lent in the Spring.  Other services in this series are on October 10, and November 14.   We hope that you will join us.

SOCIAL ADVOCACY WITNESS (S.A.W.) OF NORTHEAST TENNESSEE

A confirmed legislative meeting on the topic of immigration is scheduled for 26 September 3:30 pm at Panera in Johnson City with Lana Moore of Senator Alexander’s office and Tracey Edwards of Senator Corker’s office.  Please mark your calendar and respond if able to attend, we will gather at 3:00 pm.
The next regular SAW meeting will be 11 October 7:00 pm at Watauga Avenue Presbyterian Church.  The inspiring guided discussions on Faith and Citizenship, led by Rev. Lee Clements will continue for the October meeting. Through scripture and examining the life of Jesus Christ we are reminded of the call to act and to take action on behalf of those unable to speak for themselves-widows, orphans, the poor, the needy, the weak and strangers to the land.  Join us in putting faith to action.

Priority issues will also be addressed.
