Hagerman church hosts Harvest Festival Dinner

HAGERMAN — The Community of Christ Church will hold its annual Harvest Festival Dinner from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday in the church fellowship hall, 211 Orchard St., Hagerman.

A home-cooked turkey dinner with all the trimmings — turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, salad, drink and pumpkin or apple pie — will be served. The cost is $10 for adults and $7 for children ages 6 to 12. Children younger than 6 will get in free. The public is invited to enjoy an evening with friends.

Unitarian Universalists explore belonging to Earth

TWIN FALLS — The public is welcome at the Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at 10:30 a.m. Sunday at the church, 160 Ninth Ave. E., Twin Falls. The Rev. Mary Beth Bolin, the new intern minister, will share lessons she learned from those who don’t quite fit in our human-built systems — those who some would say don’t belong.

Newcomers of all religious paths, or none at all, are always welcome. Child care is available. The church is handicapped-accessible. For more information, call Ken Whiting at 208-410-8904 or email or go to

In-gathering for pantry

TWIN FALLS — During October, the Episcopal Church of the Ascension will collect food and hygiene items for Gilbert’s Pantry for students at the College of Southern Idaho. Donations of non-perishable food and personal toiletries can be dropped in the gathering area of the church at 371 Eastland Drive N., Twin Falls. Lists of suggested food items will be available there as well.

According to a Harvard University study, up to half of the nation’s college students go without meals. At community colleges like CSI, students tend to be older and are more likely to support other family members — extending the struggle beyond just the student.

Additionally, the in-gathering at the Idaho Episcopal Diocesan Convention from Nov. 8 to 10 in Burley will be designated to meet a need in the host area.

Holy Communion will be at 9 a.m. Sunday at the church with the Rev. Lauren Schoeck presiding. Nursery care for children younger than 5 years is available from 8:45 a.m. until after worship. Family Sunday School to learn about “The Fruits of the Spirit” will follow the service in the parish hall.

Ascension Studies will continue to retrace the steps of the second and third missionary journeys of St. Paul at 4 p.m. Sunday. Attendance at prior sessions is not necessary.

All are welcome for worship, study and fellowship at Ascension Episcopal Church which is handicapped-accessible. For more information, call 208-733-1248 or go to

St. Edward’s hosts fest
