September Worship at the River

"If we relegate worship to then becomes situational. Worship is relational, therefore we do it in life!"

After a summer of family connections and informal outdoor gatherings, we are looking forward to our "relational life worship" time together this Sunday, October 9 at 6pm at Phonics Phactory 3333 NE Eighth St. Gresham (no potluck this month). Sunday October 14 we will resume our 4pm potluck and worship gatherings at the Troutdale House for the remainder of the year.

This season, for Carlene and I, has been challenging and filled with opportunities to live in joyful worship (YEA!!).  We have been faced with learning new skills regarding the management of family estate properties.  She is doing great but we both have needed the wisdom of Solomon in our "training for reigning". Thank you for praying with us.

September 30   Walk with Delight  
The Petersens are walking to defeat ALS. On Sunday, September 30, 2012 the Petersen family is participating in the the Portland Metro Walk to Defeat ALS. We're walking because we lost Delight Petersen to ALS this year. We think this will be a fun way to gather friends and family, raise funds for the ALS Association, and remember Delight.

At the November 11, 2012 Worship at the River meeting Tom and Donna will be with us for an evening of worship and ministry. In addition to that, there will be a 4-week class during the month of October based Cole’s book: Pure Heart – Restoration of the Heart through the Beatitudes.The class meetings will occur on October 21, 28, Nov 4 and Nov 11 from 2-4PM. The location will be announced later. Twenty registrations are being saved for regular Worship at the River attendees through the month of August. Register early to get in the class. During September, registrations will be accepted for any unfulfilled spots in the class. The cost for the class, including the book, will be $10/person.
