On Sept. 27th, at St. Patrick’s Church in Watertown, Watertown Overcoming Addiction will be holding its 3rd annual candlelight vigil at 7 pm for those who have died from overdoses in the last year in Watertown. Each year we have been invited to be present with other members of the community to shine a light on the urgency of the present opioid crisis and to offer support to families that have lost loved ones. If you would like further info please talk with Rev. Mike Clark.
We will be hosting our 2nd annual “Go Green For Halloween Costume Swap” on Saturday, Oct. 7th. Instead of purchasing new costumes each year, we encourage the community to swap their slightly used costumes to save resources, packaging, transportation costs, and money.
Anyone interested in participating can drop off gently used costumes for children, teens or adults on Thursday, Oct.5 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. or Friday, Oct. 6 from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. Costumes should be in GREAT condition.
Participants will get a token for each costume donated. Return on Saturday, October 7 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. with your token and shop for a swap. Any costumes and accessories remaining will be donated.
Email Cherise at: email@example.com if you have any additional questions.
Sign up, donate or both by following this link:

Turn your kids into Galactic Starveyors!
As kids focus their telescopes on the marvels painted in the sky by the Creator, they will discover the wonder among all wonders - that the God who created everything there is - the knowable and the unknowable, the visible and the invisible - wants a personal relationship with them! Invite your kids into the clubhouse and show them the God who is over the moon in love with them.
Praise God with Dance!
