November 1st Update
~ Every election Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon (EMO), of which the Oregon-Idaho United Methodist Conference is a member, produces a Voters’ Guide to Oregon Ballot Measures for use as an educational resource. The guide is not an attempt to tell you how to vote, but to provide you with information for looking at these measures from a faith perspective. The 2018 guide is now available and can be accessed at: https://tinylink.net/tITTY. Deadline to turn in ballots is Tuesday, November 6th by 8:00 p.m.
~ Trinity Prayer Chain: We are in the process of setting up a Trinity Prayer Chain. Prayer messages will be sent by email to those who have signed up to receive them. We will be looking for a couple volunteers who receive email who would be willing to then call those folks who would like to be on the prayer chain but do not have access to email. If you would like to be added to the email, please send a message to Pastor Daryl at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the church office at (541) 688-3269.
