MISSION CAPSULE: In the highlands of Guatemala, 43 year old Adelina Lopez Vasquez lives with her husband Rafael and their family. Adelina is a health and nutrition promoter in her community. Through training workshops, Adelina gained knowledge and skills about how to prepare wholesome and nutritious foods. She learned the importance of maintaining a clean workspace and the benefits of cooking foods made with fresh, local ingredients instead of buying prepared foods. In addition, the training Adelina received on the topics of home hygiene and nutritious diets have helped both her and her community navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. Today, she shares all she has learned with her community so they can also lead healthy lives. PWS&D works in partnership with local Mayan organization, AMMID.

BEACHES LIFE: Over the next few weeks/months we will be holding an elder election. This involves members nominating other members to stand as elders. The members who have been voted for will then be approached about letting their name stand and after lots of discussion and thoughtful prayer, we can then move forward. Being an elder is an important step in the life of our church community.

As we move forward, in the future we are going to need someone to volunteer to take over the Hospitality group. The main responsibility is organizing coffee time after worship. In the past we have had four groups who look after this for a month at a time.

November will be here before we know it which brings forth the celebration of Advent, the Advent wreath, the nativity and Christmas. A wonderful time for us to gather together as a church family.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 25th, 2021 - Theology on Tap will gather at 7:00.

OCTOBER 27th, 2021 - Beaches Prayer Group will gather at 9:30.
