YOUTH SERVICE: Blanchet House

Yeah! We get to volunteer at Blanchet House - our favorite from City Camp this summer. But since we're doing lunch service instead of breakfast service, we can sleep in :) The kids were surprised with how much dignity the meal was served with. It was a huge contrast from The Portland Rescue Mission. 

We'll be eating lunch after all the members are served. Last time around we had a very delicous meal. Note, we only have space for 5 volunteers this time around, so first-come-first-serve. This is a Friday, but it is Veteran's Day so there is no school. 

WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING: The job assignments we have available to our volunteers are as follows, Cooks Helper (plating the food) Food Server (bringing the food out to the guests) Busser (clearing the tables of dirty plates and cups) Beverages (keeping the coffee, water and/or juice filled). 

WHAT TO WEAR: Anyone with hair below the shoulders must have it back in a hair tie. No open toed shoes, short shorts, half shirts, mini-skirts, or shirts with exposed armpits. Short sleeved shirts are fine.

After Sermon Q and A

In the Sanctuary

Beginning this week Brian will be leading a sermon discussion shortly after the worship service. This is an opportunity to discuss the passage in a bit more of a dialogical way than our liturgy makes room for. It creates space for other voices and perspectives to be shared about the passage and theme of the week. If you have young children, you are welcome to leave them downstairs during this time.
