Altadena Community Church practices an open communion table, and all are especially welcome on World Communion Sunday, Oct. 7. In 10 AM. worship, the Rev. Adrienne Eggleston will speak on "A Church Divided." In the 11:35 AM adult class, she will explore the origins of World Communion Sunday. This is an opportunity to sample a variety of breads and learn about differing celebrations of communion. Eggleston will also lead worship through the rest of October, the final month of Pastor Joe McGowan's sabbatical. For information call (626) 798-1185 or visit www.altadenaucc.org. Altadena Community Church is at 943 East Altadena Drive
Meanwhile, across the street at St. Mark's Episcopal Church, members of the community are invited to bring their animals--any type, appropriately restrained/contained--to the annual Blessing of the Animals at 9:00 AM and 10:30 AM on Sunday. Stuffed animals, or photos of those too shy to make an appearance, are also welcome! Saint Mark's is located at 1014 E. Altadena Drive.
