Our beautiful and generous members helped us with decorating the church for Christmas.

A BIG THANK YOU to all of you!



Here’s the link for an invitation to the Intergenerational Advent Dinner


Advent Dinner, Crafts and Fun! Sunday, December 9th, 4-6 pm
  • This is our second annual festival, featuring a free dinner cooked by Ray Morley, music, crafts, and prayers.
  • We’ll have craft tables for all ages.
  • We will finish the evening in the sanctuary with a brief Advent Vespers service, with songs and a story by Rev. Christine.
  • We’ll again offer a children’s Christmas shop,  where kids can go to choose gifts for their loved ones, and buy anything for a dollar, shopping with teenage helpers as need, so they can surprise their parents and family with presents for Christmas. The youth group will be wrapping the gifts in real time, so children will leave with their presents all set for Christmas.  We’re collecting donations of white elephant items in the parlor from now until December 9!  Bring in what you can: we welcome mugs, vases, jewelry, art, games, you name it.
