Hello, Church Family!

In just a few short weeks we enter in to the season of Lent. While a season of reflecting on the heavy events that led to Jesus' death and resurrection, it is also a rich season of practicing being present and intentionally pressing in to the practices that draw us in to deeper communion with God and with each other. We feast, we fast, we pray, we meditate, and we celebrate. We hope you plan to join us for the special times of fellowship as we journey together this Lenten season.

First, Mark your calendars to kick it all off with our Fat Tuesday Pancake Dinner, Feb. 13th @ 5:30 pm.

We are looking for a few people to help flip pancakes and a few to help clean up. If you are available, contact Karis or Drea.

When the sun goes down on December 24, we officially begin Christmastide, twelve days of celebrating the birth of Christ the Savior.

On New Years Eve Day, Sunday Dec 31st, those who are in town are invited to gather at the church for a potluck brunch at 10AM. We will worship by breaking bread and sharing in communion.

On Jan 7, we will celebrate Epiphany together. Christmastide culminates on Epiphany which is January 6th and we will observe this day together on this Sunday. Epiphany, which means 'reveal', celebrates Jesus being revealed and worshipped as God with us.

Join us, December 24th at our normal worship time of 10:00am, as we gather to tell the story of Emmanuel, God with us. We tell this story every year. We tell this story because it illustrates so clearly God’s desire to be in relationship with us. We tell this story because we, too, are invited to come to the manger and witness the miracle of birth. We tell this story because it brings us hope and good news—hope especially for those deemed powerless, unworthy, or unwelcome. We tell this story because it is a story we need to hear again and again; if we didn’t tell it, what would become of our faith? And so, on this day, we will tell this story to pass along the good news and to continue to thread together the generations with hope. We hope you will join us.

Jesus Christ is coming. We wait and prepare in hope, peace, joy, and love.

Please note that we will not be having an evening service on December 24th
