Morning Worship Service at 10:30 am each Sunday!

Sunday, December 4th

We continue our Advent series on the Carols of Christmas. We read from Micah 5:1-5 and the carol is “O Little Town of Bethlehem.” Pastor Mike will lead our service.

In the evening on December 4th

We will have our “Blue Christmas” service at 7:00 p.m. Christmas can be a painful time. It might be the first Christmas without a loved family member. People may be facing life after divorce or separation. Perhaps you are coping with the loss of a job. The constant expectation of happiness actually hurts for many people in our congregations and communities. Many people feel blue at Christmas. This is why we hold a “Blue Christmas” service. Come and join us as we call on God to help bear our burdens and bring light into our darkness. Take an invitation and invite a friend or neighbor who needs encouragement.

Sunday, December 11th

We will have our Children’s Christmas program – “Star Struck.”

A potluck soup and bun lunch

Has been organized for next Sunday, December 11th after the Children’s Christmas Service. Please invite your extended family members to stay and fellowship with us over soup and buns! Please bring a pan of soup or prepared buns and dessert. Everyone is welcome!
