Come and celebrate the birth of our Lord.

Services are currently being held on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. in person in the sanctuary (MASKS ARE OPTIONAL for those fully vaccinated for a minimum of two weeks after their final dose), but are recommended for indoor settings.

Questions?  Email or call the church office.

You may also make a cash donation to the Deacons to purchase listed items.

Reminder: Travel sized lotions and creams are preferred.  They are easier for residents to handle and for packing the boxes.  Please deliver UNWRAPPED items to the church on or before December 5.

The Deacons will box and wrap the gifts on Saturday, December 11 at 9:00 am.

We could use a few helper... if you’d like to assist!!


Our annual congregational meeting will be held following worship on December 5, 2021, preceding the Advent luncheon.  Please plan to attend.

Our Advent sermon series will be engaging with themes from Christmas movies.  Each week, a Christmas moving will accompany scripture to illuminate the birth of Jesus.  We will be watching the movie on Mondays at 6:30 p.m. in Fellowship Hall.  We hope you will join us this Advent season.

  • Dec. 6th Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
  • Dec. 13th A Christmas Story
  • Dec. 20th Miracle on 34th Street

Youth Group will meet here at the church on Wednesdays at 6 p.m.  This is for students grades 6-12.  Students do not need to be affiliated with our church.  Bring a friend!

We have a Bible study every Thursday at 11 a.m. in the chapel.  Bring your lunch and join us as we dig deeper into scripture.  Everyone is welcome.

The book club group will meet on the second Wednesday of the month, December 8th.  We will meet at the church at 7:00.  The book club ladies have chosen The Stranger in the Lifeboat by Mitch Albom for our December book.  This a brand new book, already a best seller.  For January we have selected Vanishing Acts by Jody Picoult.  Feel free to join us.  All are welcome.

The Soup of the month for December will be Stuffed Pepper Soup.  The soup will be available for December 12th right after church.  Please indicate if you want a pint or quart.  We try to make extra but there are times when we run out, so please get your orders in before December 8th.  You can order using the green insert in the bulletin.

Anyone like to knit?  Wouldn’t it be great to put knitted scarves in the Blessing Bags!  If you are interested in doing some, there is free yarn down in the library so it won’t cost you anything but your time.  Completed scarves can be left in the library.  They only need to be one color but long enough to wrap around your neck at last twice.  What a “blessing” for the Blessing Bags.  We only have a couple of weeks to get them completed so if we could have them no later than December 12th, that would be awesome.

We recently announced in church that we would like to distribute 100 blessing bags before Christmas!  We need your help to raise about $3,000 to buy the items to build a robust and nutritious blessing bag.  To date we have collected about $1,900!  Please send your contributions to the church office or put them in the treasure chests in the sanctuary.

In addition to financial support, we also need volunteers to create small blessing notes that will go into each bag.  These notes can be from scripture or words of encouragement.  If you are interested in preparing blessing bag notes, please let Terri C. know.

We hope to get all ages involved in this ministry!  As the holidays approach, let’s work together to put others, less fortunate, before ourselves.  As part of our broomstick theology, we are called to people, especially people we are in a position to help!

Who loves cookies but hates baking multiple kinds for Christmas?  We have a solution.  The kitchen committee will once again have their cookie exchange on December 19th right after church.  Everyone will be asked to wear a mask and gloves will be provided.  Grab a container and shop the many different kinds of cookies that will be available.  The cookies will be weighed and the cost is $8.00 a pound.  Of course, none of this will be possible without the congregations help, so we are asking for donations of cookies or other pastries so other people can try them out.  Please mark what your cookies/pastries are, and if they have nuts in them or not.  The church will be open on Saturday the 18th from 9:00 till 11:00 for you to drop your cookies off or you can bring them Sunday morning before church.  A sign-up sheet will be in the Narthex with a list of what cookies are being made so far so we don’t have a lot of duplications.   Please put down what you are making… We thank you in advance.
