Advent is fast-approaching...
And the time has come to prepare our hearts to celebrate Christ's birth. We invite you to come to our inter-generational event "Sing We Now of Christmas!" to write this year's Advent and Christmas Devotions together.
We will gather in the fellowship hall on Sunday, November 23rd from 2:00-4:00 pm for cookie decorating, caroling, and writing. Think you aren't creative enough to write the devotions? You're WRONG! We welcome any form of inspiration, and even offer writing prompts if you need some help.
ALL ARE WELCOME!! We've designed this event for any age* and any group of people, so please come for fellowship and fun! See you then!
*Child care will be provided
SUNDAY, November 23rd at 9:15 am in the Social Hall
Celebrate Thanksgiving Well! Do you have an ATTITUDE or GRATITUDE? Younger or older, we are all susceptible to wanting an easy, pleasant life. And when things don't go our way, sometimes we make it known! At Thanksgiving time, we have an opportunity to "reboot" our heart.
At ONE next Sunday morning, we wil hear Pilgrim stories and engage in a hands-on activity to help our whole church family CELEBRATE WELL this Thanksgiving. This is for EVERYONE, ages 3 to 103!
See you there!

In an attempt to provide a sacred time and space for healing and feelings of loss, the volunteer Parish Nurses, along with our pastoral staff, are planning the annual

This is a simple candlelit service for those who need to pause, acknowledge their own loss, grief or sadness, and be surrounded by prayer, song and scripture. Please watch for bulletin reminders, mark this time on your calendar, invite any friends in the larger community if you wish, and join us at this service.
