Join us for a Fireside Christmas Eve service at 7 p.m. on Friday, December 24.
We will be gathering as a family (everyone is invited) in our church’s living room (that is, the lounge) where we will be warmed by the fire in the hearth. You can expect a casual gathering of under an hour, where there will be music and singing of carols, a reading of the Christmas Story, prayer, and a time for sharing our own Christmas traditions.
If you are unable to make it in person, we will be streaming via Zoom, using the same Sunday Worship link we use each week.
To help us celebrate, whether you are near or far, send me a photo of your family, a special Christmas tradition, your tree, or other Christmas decorations. I will include these in a slideshow during the service. Think of it as a kind of communal virtual christmas card for one another. Send your photos by December 23rd to have them included. Thanks to those who already shared their photos.
Finally, due to popular demand and so your season may be merry and bright, I’ve reposted last year’s Pandemic Christmas Pageant Video. Enjoy.
God’s peace to you,

The Angel Mission has reopened. It has been very busy both with people coming in to shop and bringing in donations. Currently, one side of the Mission’s rented space houses Halloween costumes and decorations besides the back portion of the space being used for storage. Come November the Halloween items will be replaced with winter coats, hats, mittens, boots, etc. Parents signing up for Angel Tree gifts for their children will also begin at this time. Don’t worry, we will have a sign up sheet for purchasing gifts at the church at a later date.
