Beginning Wednesday, Nov 30th, we will be having our weeknight Advent Services. These 7:00pm worship services will focus our hearts and minds on the gift of Christ as our Savior. They are a great way to keep Christ in Christmas not only for our members but for those who are close to you who need to hear the joy of God’s Son as our Savior.

Our Children’s Christmas Service will be on Sunday December 18th at 9:00am. This is a worship service in which the children of our congregation proclaim the message of the Savior in Word and song. Following the service, there will be a Christmas Brunch for the members of the congregation and all of our visitors.

With winter approaching, Christian Life Resources is once again asking for your help in keeping the less fortunate warm and comfortable. They are looking for new or used winter coats for children 5 years old and under. If you are able to help, please speak with Elaine French.
           
Retired? Have days free? Looking for some fellowship?  Join us here at the church on the second Friday of each month for a time of fellowship and getting to know one another. It will be a time for games, devotions, prayers and other activities that help pass the time and encourage one another. The church will be open at 12:30 PM on these days. It is also a good time to bring a friend to help them meet our members and learn more about God’s grace.
