Saturday, December 17, we invite anyone who has been naughty or nice this year to have Breakfast with Santa.  Our Men of the Church will provide a pancake breakfast with all the trimmings.  The Jolly Old Elf himself will be there, too, to listen to wishes and pose for photos.  Drop in any time between 8:30 and 10:00 a.m. in our Social Hall.  Ho! Ho! Ho!

Christmas 2011 099 resizeAdvent is the time set aside in the church calendar to anticipate the fulfillment of God’s promises that Christ will come again.  At the end of it all, God will re-make the world the way God intends for it to be:  filled with abundance, joyous celebration, unimaginable beauty, and freedom for all of God’s people.  Join us for these special events in worship:

  • November 27:  The First Sunday in Advent, when we will begin this season of watching, waiting, and hope together.
  • December 4:  A Service of Communion for Advent, when we will remember that Jesus feeds our bodies and spirits as we wait for the coming of the great banquet, when no one will be hungry or thirsty any more.
  • December 18:  A Choral Offering, when we will celebrate in song our anticipation of the coming of the Lord.

Our annual Christmas Eve Service of Lessons, Carols, and Light will be Saturday, December 24, at 6:00 p.m.  We will remember the story of the coming of Jesus Christ through readings, singing, and sharing of the light of Christ.  We will also celebrate the Lord’s Supper as a part of our worship.  All are welcome!  Please join us!
