Wednesday Midweek Service—last midweek service for this year is Wed Dec 13 at 10:00am. We start up again on January 10, 2018.

Bulletin Help—it’s that time of year again! We need some help putting Christmas bulletins together. The job is easy, we pay with coffee and treats and you can take pride in a job well done when you open up your beautifully stapled and folded bulletin! We are getting together on Thursday December 21 at 10:00am. Email the office to volunteer.

Library Lines—the Christmas season can be so busy. For some quiet time, our display table has a selection of seasonal items for all ages. Two new book titles take us to Amish country: White Christmas Pie (F BRU LP) by Wanda Brunstettor and An Amish Second Christmas: Four Novellas (F AMI) by various authors. An Amish Second Christmas, by the way, is what we call Boxing Day!

Christmas Services 
2017
Join us as we celebrate the birth of Jesus! 
Carols, candles and the wonder of the Christmas story where a king was born in a manger, bringing joy and hope for us all.
We are now in the season of “Advent”, the four Sundays before Christmas.  

We know what is coming but every year we remember what it is like to wait. To wait for salvation, for a word from God, the breath of the Holy Spirit, the birth of the Messiah.  

You are warmly invited to join us each Sunday in December to mark this special time of year.
