St. Gabriel’s will have a Blessing of the Animals Sunday, October 5th at the 8:00 am and 10:00 am services. Pets are welcome in the worship space on a leash or in a carry case. Clergy will bless animals where they are seated with their owners. At the 10:00am service our 4th-6th grade Seasons classroom will be presenting a dramatic reading of Old Turtle by Douglas Wood in honor of St. Francis Day. 4th-6th graders are asked to get to church by 9:45 am if possible that day to practice before service starts- please come to the youth room. All other children will sit in service with their families- there is no church school but the nursery will be open for children under 4 years.

Yew Life Center joins St. Gabriel’s Endowment Committee in sponsoring “Planning Your Financial Future”seminars 

  • Sunday, November 2  Getting started: Estate planning for young families

  • Sunday, February 15    Mid-Life Concerns: Incapacity and Medical Assistance

  • TBD -   Growing Older: Taxes, Gifting, and charitable donations

Seminars will be presented by experienced estate planning attorneys.  All of these sessions are appropriate for families throughout the age spectrum. They are designed to help individuals gain peace of mind by clarifying  the decision making processes surrounding financial concerns at all stages of life. The goal is to help you understand your options in Estate Planning.  If you are without clear instructions for your wishes the State of  Oregon will make these decisions for you. Be prepared! All seminars will be held  following the Sunday services at 11:45.  Childcare and food will be provided.  Flyers detailing these seminars can be found in the narthex along with a sign-up sheet. The seminars are open to the public so ask your friends to join you.

Green Community: St. Gabriel’s wants to be true to our commitment to be a green community, and we would like to move forward using only biodegradable, green cleaning products. In the future if you donate or purchase cleaning products for the kitchen, classrooms or restrooms please make sure they fit into this category. See the full list on the sign on the church bulletin board.
