Christmas Celebration Sunday

            Christmas time is a busy season with all of us, we are all going in different directions to spend time with loved ones and families. But many times we miss the chance to celebrate the joy of Christmas with our Church Family, so this year we are having a Church Christmas Celebration Sunday on Sunday, December 10th.   It will be a day of worship, fellowship, fun, and celebration.  

            We will start our celebration with the band “One Way Up” joining us for worship at both services that morning.  At 3pm we will have our Sunday School Christmas program.  Following the program, we will have a Potluck Supper in Wesley Hall. Following the supper our Jr. and Sr. High Youth Groups will have games and activities for the kids. So break out your most festive Christmas sweater and join us as we celebrate the birth of Jesus!  Sign-up sheets for the potluck will be in Wesley Hall starting Sunday, November 26th.  



We are excited to be supporting partners in the Thrive campaign.  Strength for Today, Hope for Tomorrow:

Advent Study:

Nov. 29 A Carpenter Named Joseph
Dec. 6 Whose Child is This
Dec. 13 Raising a Child Not Your Own
Dec. 20 The Journey to Bethlehem
7:15 p.m. in the Church Lounge
Led by Rev. Ron

For our Advent study this year we will be using Adam Hamilton's book "Faithful, Christmas through the eyes of Joseph."  Cost of the book is $15. In this study, you will understand how Joseph's place in the nativity story is much like our own. In life, we encounter circumstances that we would have never chosen for ourselves. At times it can be tempting just to walk away. Joseph provides us a great example of humbly obeying God even when we don't understand and faithfully moving forward in the strength that God provides. Exchange your doubt for courage this Advent and Christmas season.
