Cedar Hills UCC is hosting us in their youth room (the old chapel). We'll gather for pizza and games around 6pm, watch a late night viewing of the movie at Cedar Hills Crossing (reserved seats so that we can all sit together), head to bed sometime after midnight (bring PJs, sleeping bag & pillow) and then have breakfast around their fire pit in the morning. Parents can drop off around 6pm and pick up by 10am. RSVP to Rev. Elizabeth.
Hard Times Supper @ Sunnyside Church (3520 SE Yamhill St, Portland, OR 97214). HardTimes Supper is a meal served family-style to people who live outside. Come help make a difference! Please let me know soon if you're able to join us...this helps them with volunteer planning.
Join us downstairs in the spooookky Kiva for a Halloween party for kids ages 0 to 12 immediately after morning worship. (Older kids, we'd love your help decorating and making it spooky for the young ones!). We'll have pin-the-grin-on-the-pumpkin, apple bopping, sweet treats and more. Wear your costumes to church!
Join us for an awesome time of fun, fellowship and family in the forest at Camp Adams on August 26. We'll have swimming, field games, hiking, family art projects, worship, good food and, of course, campfire with songs and s'mores! Register now at: http://uccportland.org/family-camp.
Join us for a potluck picnic in the park! Mill Pond Park has a playground and plenty of room to run, play and enjoy a long summer evening together! Bring a dish and beverage to share. Hosted by the Sullivan family. Contact Ann or Rev. Elizabeth for directions.
Pow Wow is a great chance to experience both indigenous culture and spirituality, and I look forward to talking with our kids and youth about how indigenous spiritual practice includes dance, drumming, regalia and storytelling...with sacred rules handed down through the generations.
All ages are welcome. Pow wow is free. Remember not to take any photos unless you ask the person's permission first.

During worship on June 11th we will celebrate a wonderful year of growth, learning and service as our children and youth complete the 2016/17 program year. We'll celebrate with all our children who advance to the next grade and thank our church school volunteers. Our celebration will also include the RECOGNITION of GRADUATES - high school, post-high school programs, college, graduate school. We are in the process of compiling the list of our graduates. If you/your child is graduating from high school, college or graduate school program, please take a moment to send the graduate's name, program, major, school and future plans/next steps to the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or Rev. Elizabeth at email@example.com ASAP. We want to make sure to include all those in our extended church family. Thank you!
It's a party! All are invited to join in our festive celebration of the birthday of the church and the fiery energy of the Holy Spirit. Children are invited to help carry Pentecost banners and give out "flames of wisdom," while youth are invited to serve communion. See Rev. Elizabeth for more details!
