Advent and Christmas

Coming up in Advent! Save these dates:
Decorating the church for Christmas: sign up here to join the Decorating Crew on Sunday, November 28 from 12:00-2:00 (pizza provided!) Hang wreaths, string lights, decorate the sanctuary.
The Christmas mission giving tree will be up on November 28. We will have almost 500 gift requests from our mission partners!  Each day during the season of Advent, you will receive a devotional message in your inbox written by a church member or friend. These messages will help you start your day with a biblical reflection.   Each Sunday during Advent, we will enjoy music of the season, light the Advent candles, and hear a message on the hope, peace, joy and love of the Christmas message.
