This beloved tradition is back, and your support is crucial. We're seeking helping hands for meal preparation, setup, and cleanup. Join Trudy Bull, Kim Jones, and Lauren Holland as they unite to revive this cherished feast. For those eager to assist in setting up the Christmas Bazaar, reach out to Ruth Hammon-tree.

Gather your loved ones and friends to rejoice in the birth of our Lord through beautiful songs and enlightening scripture readings. After the service, you'll have plenty of time to head home and enjoy your own Christmas Eve dinner with family and friends.

Additionally, on Sunday, December 25th, we will have online devotions available for those who wish to continue their spiritual journey during this special time.

Let's come together to honor the true meaning of Christmas and cherish the joyous moments in the company of our faith community.

Elementary Aged Ministry
If you would be willing to help serve communion, read scripture, usher, or acolyte (ages 9 & up), please let Pastor Laura know.

Feed 'em, Teach 'em & Love 'em, our elementary-aged ministry, needs your help. We need drivers to pick up the kids on Sunday morning and return them home after worship. We need people to help cook breakfast at 8 am. We need volunteers to help create the weekly activity packets for families. (Driving and working with children requires certification through our Safe Gatherings process, it's an easy online training and background-checking service) Call the church office to volunteer, or support this important ministry financially.

Thank you to everyone who has been involved in the Giving Tree Distribution.
