October 22 – We will look at the John Hus video. He carried forth Wycliffe’s groundbreaking work. His passionate calls for reform brought him before the Council of Constance. There he was betrayed by false accusations. He refused to capitulate and was condemned to burn at the stake. He died singing.

Trick-or-Treat Through the Square
Sunday, October 29th from 1-4pm.
Please bring candy donations to church!
This year we are joining Belvedere Square’s Sixth Annual “Trick or Treat at the Square”!
This neighborhood event offers a fun-filled Halloween celebration for the young and young at heart. Among the treats for families: music by DJ Chris, a Thriller dance lesson and performance by The White Marsh Ballet Academy, surprises from Square merchants, food and drink specials, a costume contest (18 and under), pumpkin decorating (free while supply lasts), new trunk-or-treating from community members, including Govan’s Presbyterian Church, The Church of Nativity and Holy Comforter and more! Even pets are treated by Square neighbor Belvedere Veterinary Center and special guest appearance from Govan’s Elementary. Ghosts and goblins welcome! Event takes place from 1pm – 4pm.
The event is open to the public and all activities are free, with the exception of the costume contest, which has a $5 entry fee. 100% of the proceeds from the contest will benefit Govan’s Elementary.
Please let Stewart know if you can be there for an hour or so to help hand out candy and church info.
Thanks to all of you for your generosity and support. So far, we have raised over $4000 for Hurricane Relief efforts. If you have not yet made a donation, you may click these links to make a donation directly to Episcopal Relief and Development or Lutheran World Relief. Alternately, you may make a check to our church, and we will send the funds on to those in need.
A Wellness Initiative
We think of ourselves as a community resource. We are a place for meetings. A home for our local kid’s theater program. We host AA meetings and Yoga classes. We invite all our neighbors to come take part in the Christmas Pageant. Now we’re doubling down on wellness. We’re hosting a new early morning yoga class. Walks in the community. A monthly trail walk (dogs are welcome, too) at Lake Roland. We are here to support wellness in every part of life. It’s a mind, body, spirit thing.
