Magic Valley Ministries gather for worship
BUHL — The United Methodist Churches of Buhl, Filer, Hagerman, Wendell and Jerome share ministry and mission in rural Magic Valley and gather together for worship whenever there is a fifth Sunday in a month. They will gather for worship at 10:30 a.m. Sunday at the Buhl United Methodist Church, 908 Maple St. Rev. Penny Hodges will preach and Rev. Mike Hollomon will assist in leading worship.
An enchilada lunch will follow worship. Visitors are asked to bring a dessert to share. Anyone interested in experiencing or exploring traditional United Methodist worship in a relaxed style is welcome to attend.
Sunday is also UMCOR Sunday. A special offering will be taken to support the United Methodist Committee on Relief which is the humanitarian and development arm of the United Methodist Church. This offering covers all the administrative costs of UMCOR so that when donations are made for specific disasters or ministries, all of those donations go to assistance.

Unitarian Universalists explore living wholeheartedly
TWIN FALLS — Synonyms for “wholehearted” are many: ardent, avid, eager, enthused, fervent, gung-ho, impassioned, zealous, lively, earnest, unrestrained, and on and on. But is living with a whole heart more than living in the hearty manner these words imply?
The public is welcome at the Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at 10:30 a.m. Sunday at 160 Ninth Ave. E. Patricia Heeb, member of the Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, will deliver her message about living wholeheartedly.
Unitarian Universalism honors the differing paths individuals travel. Congregations are places where people celebrate, support and challenge one another as they continue on their spiritual journeys.
Unitarian Universalists covenant to affirm and promote: the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equality and compassion in human relations; and acceptance of one another.
Newcomers of all religious paths, or none at all, are always welcome. Child care is available. The church is handicapped-accessible. Please park in the rear of the building or on the street in front or the side of the building.
