CROP Hunger Walk
Sunday, October 5 @ 12:30 pm
Green Lake UMC, 6415 1st Avenue NE, Seattle
Join us again this year as we participate in the Church World Service’s Annual CROP Hunger Walk! We’ll join walkers from Green Lake UMC and other area churches in a walk around beautiful Green Lake, hopefully just in time to see some vibrant fall colors on the surrounding trees. Invite your neighbors, family and friends! You can pick up donation envelopes and other promotional materials in the church office, and stop by the social hall to read some stories of people around the globe and here at home who’ve been helped by CWS programs. Walk with us — every step truly does make a difference!

Earth Ministry’s 20th Annual
Tuesday October 7, 2014
7:00 – 8:30 pm
John de Graaf, an international speaker on issues of sustainability, time balance, and happiness, will be the featured presenter at Earth Ministry’s 20th Annual Celebration of St. Francis.
John, Executive Director of Take Back Your Time and co-author of Affluenza and What’s the Economy For, Anyway?, has been producing documentaries for public television for 37 years. He will make the case that Americans work too much and consume too much, and that our passion for economic growth is a key driving force toward increasing inequality, unhappiness, stress, and poor environmental stewardship in the United States. Throughout the evening he will point to promising possibilities for improving our quality of life. The plea of St. Francis to slow down and become re-enchanted with the sacredness of the world has never been more relevant than it is today.
Olympic View Community Church is excited to be hosting this special event with Earth Ministry! Join us on October 7 to learn how time away from the workplace can improve your health, community, life satisfaction and stewardship of all God’s creation. See you here!
Cider Squeeze at Frosty’s

Fall is here, apples are ripe and ready for harvest…and Frosty Wilkinson is hosting another great Cider Squeeze!
This is a fun event for the entire family at Frosty’s picturesque farm in Mount Vernon. Bring your own containers for cider, and dress for the outdoors! His crop is not as large as he’d hoped this year, so please bring a 5 lb bag of apples with you to supplement. We’ll share a potluck style supper after the work is done, so bring a hearty dish to share! All are welcome, and carpools will be arranged so please let us know if you plan to attend: call or email the office, or join our facebook event to RSVP!

Library Catalog – now online!
Thanks especially to the hard work of Kathryn Smith-Derksen, our church library renovation is nearly complete. Members and friends can now browse our collection on-line.
Please take some time to check it out and see what’s there. You’ll still need to come to the library to sign the books out.
