Advent Offering ....
Each year a special Advent Benevolence Project determined by Consistory.  Details on this project will be shared on Sunday mornings beginning December 4th.  If you would like to contribute to our special advent benevolence project, mail your contribution so that it is received by Sunday, December 18th.

 

Christmas Flower Donations....
The Christmas poinsettias bring special beauty to our sanctuary during the holiday season.  Our special "Christmas Flower Contribution" program give you an opportunity to help cover the cost of the poinsettias by making a contribution in memory or honor of someone special to you.  Envelopes should be returned by December 14th so that this information can be included in the special bulletin insert for the Fourth Sunday of Advent, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day.

 

Children's "Bible Adventure"....
Children's "Bible Adventure" will be held from 11:00 - 11:30 am on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month. Children from preschool through 5th grade are invited to join us in the parlor to hear Bible stories and sing songs.

 

"Study Zone" ....
Our new program "Study Zone" offers free tutoring and homework help for students in grades 1 through 5. The program runs from 4 to 6 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning in October and running through May. Parents will be able to select one weekly session for each child. Please keep this brand new program in your prayers.

 

 

A very special thank you ....
A sincere thank you to Richard Hartley who spent numerous hours working around the church grounds during the hot summer months of July and August. Richard took great pride in his work as he pulled up weeds, trimmed the bushes, cut the lawn, touched up the paint on our sign and flag pole, and made our grounds look much more presentable. We are gratefull to Richard for all he has done for us this summer. This fall, Richard will continue to assist us in maintaining our grounds.

 

Blue Jean Sunday....
Our next "Blue Jean Sunday" will be held on November 27th. Stay for a "pot-luck" breakfast following our worship service and then join us as we work together to set up the christmas tree and decorate the sanctuary.

 

Worship Music...
Worship music is like a prayer that can be spoken in many different languages together by many different people. The more kinds..... the more beautiful it becomes. We are looking to expand the way we do music so that more and more people can pray and rejoice along with us. Please speak to Parish Musician Michelle, if you have a musical talent and would be willing to help us expand our Sunday worship experience.

 

Worship Cancellation Plan...
In the event of a major snowstorm or other emergencies, it is possible that in the best interest of the safety and well being of our worshippers, we may cancel our Sunday morning worship services. Any cancellation decisions will be made by 8 am on Sunday morning. While this should be a rare situation, we want to make sure that our members are informed about any cancellations.
