The Walnut Hill Children's Choir continues practice this Sunday, November 2, 10am, in Trinity Hall. Nell Horman is leading the children as they learn to use voices and instruments to celebrate God's love. The children are particularly working on Christmas music leading to a Sunday morning presentation in December. All Walnut Hill children are invited to participate.
The Annual Meeting of the Congregation of Walnut Hill Church will be held on Sunday, November 9, in the Sanctuary, immediately after morning worship. Business items will include election of Vestry members, approval of the Pastor's terms of call, and approval of the 2009 church budget. All members and friends of Walnut Hill Church have privilege of voice and vote at congregational meetings and are encouraged to attend.

-Thanks to...to a whole group parents who made our Fall Fellowship refreshments so festive last Sunday; many of the same parents, youth, children, and donors who provided the items for and prepared "hygiene kits" that will be sent via Church World Service to persons affected by natural disasters such as earthquake or flood.
-The Fall Fellowship Dinners were completed over the weekend. Over thirty members and friends participated. Special thanks go out to our hosts: Natalie and Bob Watt, Marian Congleton, Irene and John Ragland, Ruth and David Sharrard. Thanks also to Dorothy Brockopp and Sherry Warden who coordinated the gatherings.
Peace to all.
