Cookie Sales & Shopping This Weekend

This weekend, December 18 and 19th, join us for our annual Christmas Carols worship service. After worship, plan to stop by the fundraisers held by the Guatemala Mission Trippers. They are holding a Christmas cookie sale ($5 per plate of delicious cookies), a Guatemalan shopping bag sale, and a metal yard art auction with metal sculptures created by Kevin Hillegas. You don’t want to miss the fun!

Christmas Worship Updates

Reservations are needed for all Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services as we are still practicing physical distancing in the sanctuary.  Masks are still required for worship until further guidance from the Rise Again Team. Please note that the only services with space available are the 1:00 and 10:00p.m. services. However, we will have overflow seating at all worship services. There will be limited chairs outside the sanctuary and one pew available.

The Children’s Christmas Program will be held at the 1:00 service on Christmas Eve. All children and guests are invited to participate. We need kids in third through 8th grade to be readers. A practice will be held this Sunday (the 19th) after church.

Family Ministry Video, December 16

We’ve been diligent about sending out our weekly Informer and decided to include a section for Children’s Ministry to jump on this consistency train.  Every 2nd & 4th Sunday of the month we will share a video, on the non-video weeks there will be a simple activity provided. Check out the first video here:
