What’s Happening 
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Mitten Tree Day is on 6th December 2018: Here is everything about this fun  Holiday
Mitten Tree
This year we will not have a mitten tree because we would need to deliver the hats and mittens by December 10. Next year we will have a collection in the month of November. That means there will be warm hands and heads by December and for Christmas presents.
American Red Cross Blood Drive
The American Red Cross will be here Thursday, December 9 from 12:00 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. No appointment is necessary.
 
Please consider giving the gift of life.

Advent Season 2021

Advent season is upon us! Read below to see all the exciting things happening to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

  • A sermon series called What Gifts Do You Bring? This will invite us to imagine those that visited the Christ child in the manger, like the shepherds and kings, and what gifts they brought to honor this newborn king. We will also remember the gifts that Christ brings as he comes into the world (Peace, Gentleness, Faithfulness, & Patience) and how we are called to carry those gifts out into the world as Christ’s representatives.
  • A different Sunday School experience where we will first begin each of the four weeks in the sanctuary all together as Pastor Joel talks about Spiritual Gifts (What are they? Why are they important? Where do they come from? How do we use them?). After a short presentation, we will break into our classes and discuss what we have learned together.
  • Christmas Caroling on Sunday, December 19! Instead of Sunday School, join us for our Serve Sunday as we go out to carol to shut-ins and others in our community. For those with mobility issues, for the first time, we will have a live-streamed caroling experience – stay in the sanctuary and sing to anyone that might tune in online.
  • We will have our traditional decorations, including the Chrismons on the tree. Under the tree, we will have gifts, and each week we will unwrap one of the gifts in worship.
  • The return of our poinsettia tree for Christmas Eve. We haven’t had this in a few years. Using 40 poinsettia plants, we create a Christmas tree to greet people as they come for worship.
  • Christmas Eve worship at 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., both in-person and online.
  • Join us the Sunday after Christmas on December 26 for a Christmas Carol sing. If Pastor Joel didn’t sing your favorite Christmas carol on Christmas Eve, this is your chance to make your request known and sing at the top of your lungs to ring-in the New Year!
