NEWS AND UPCOMING EVENTS

Giving Trees are back!

The principal and staff at Resnik school are once again seeking new pairs of underwear and also gloves/mittens for the children there. They were so appreciative of the donations we made last Christmas that have long since been given to children in need. Let’s allow the Holy Spirit to inspire us to give even more than we did last year; will you help? All sizes for both boys and girls are needed (including larger sizes). You may place your gifts of new underwear and gloves under the Giving Trees in the church lobby.  

Support GapPack!

Thanks to all of you who have donated to this ministry—you have helped fill 36 little tummies with food!  We can always use staple items like hot chocolate, individual applesauce or fruit cups and oatmeal packets.  You can leave a donation on the table outside the main sanctuary doors. GapPack bags are delivered every Friday to Resnik school for the children to take home for the weekend; they are so happy to receive this gift of food.  

Join us this Christmas

Mark your calendars for a delightful worship experience on Sunday, Dec. 22, as we engage in a fun and heart-warming retelling of the Christmas story, enjoyable for all ages at our usual 10 a.m. worship service. Then, on Christmas Eve (Dec. 24) come experience beautiful candlelit evening worship with glorious music beginning at 7:30 p.m.  Arrive a half-hour early to enjoy carols played on our 

our wonderful organ, enjoy a cup of wassail, a Christmas cookie or two — and joyful fellowship. We would love for you, your friends and family to join us as we celebrate the birth of our Lord!
