Pet Blessing 

10a-12:00p Saturday


Inviting all pets to come with their people to be blessed by our pastor on a drop-in basis between 10a and Noon. Find us outside near the playground on the Oak Park Ave. side of the building (324 N. Oak Park Ave.)


Attendees are invited to bring an item listed on the Wishlist of the Animal Care League- click here (animalcareleague.org) that we will deliver following the event.  A donation is not required, but we're pretty confident the animals cared for by the Animal Care League would appreciate the gifts!


Attendees will also receive coupons for local merchants serving our community's pet population.




Kids' Costume Give-Away

10:00a- 12:00p Saturday


Whether you come with a pet companion for the pet blessing or not, feel free to stop by for a costume to get ready for the season's activities!  We've done the shopping for you: costumes are new and packaged and available while supplies last for children who are present.


On October 29th, kids are invited to come to worship wearing their costumes!*. All are welcome whether you have attended this event or not.


  *For worship, if not wearing a costume we will be providing, please no witches, devils, scary or violent costumes in worship.
