  • “We Three Spies” Christmas Pageant

    We would love to have your kids involved in the Christmas pageant on Sunday, December 15 at 10:30 a.m. We are practicing on Sunday mornings at the 9:30 and 10:30 hours. It is a fun-filled theme about a group of spies who secretly bring Christmas cheer to the needy. It takes a whole lot of God’s unconditional love and a little expert espionage to see things turn around and get the entire town celebrating the true meaning of Christmas! 

    *Dress rehearsal Saturday, December 14 at 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. Pizza included.*

  • An All Church Advent Study

    All Adult Sunday School classes will join together Sunday mornings during Advent at 9:30 a.m. for Faithful – Christmas Through the Eyes of Joseph Advent book study led by Vicki Greene. From his beginnings as a humble carpenter to his all-important role as the earthly father of Jesus Christ, Joseph's place in the nativity story is sometimes overlooked but contains valuable lessons for all of us. Join Adam Hamilton as he examines Christmas through the eyes of Joseph. Absent from much of the biblical narrative, Joseph never spoke a word, but his courageous actions were crucial to the birth of Christ and God's salvation plan for humanity. The book is available in the church office or from Join in the class any week you are able.
