All Saints’ Day: On Nov. 1, the church celebrates the “communion of the saints,” all of God’s people throughout time and around the world. If you have a loved one who has died in the last year, please send us a photo for a slideshow we’ll include in worship on Nov. 3. Email photos to Matt by this Tues., Oct. 29: email@example.com.
Welcoming the Stranger: One of our small groups this trimester is exploring ways to love the immigrants in our community. The next two weeks, they’re opening up their group to visitors as they host great speakers. On Oct. 30, Dawnielle Miller will talk about connecting with Latino immigrants; on Nov. 6, Pastor James and Faith Cha will speak about their experience as and ministry to immigrants. Both meetings are from 7:30–9:00 pm. For more information, contact Clay: go to restorationarlington.org/contact and choose “Connect.”
Vestry elections: Elections for our three new vestry members will be held after the service on Nov. 10 and Nov. 17. The slate of candidates will be announced next Sunday, Nov. 3. All Restoration members are eligible to vote in the election.

Prayer at 4. Come to the Treehouse (2nd floor) each Sunday from 4– 4:30 pm to pray. We pray for our worship service, for each other, for whatever’s going on in the world that we care about. These meetings are lively, varied, and lots of fun. All are welcome—including kids.
