Our mid-week Advent devotional Bible study will focus on Luke 1:26-38. Gabriel, talking to Mary, will tell us who is coming. All are welcome to join us for this unique service in a quiet setting in the middle of a busy week and season. We begin at 7:00pm.

Youth attending C4K-2017 carefully put together Christmas banners. Christmas For Kids (C4K) includes times for music, arts and lots of other fun activities. Thank you to all the volunteers who contributed in so many ways, helping to make a fun day for all the kids.

Christmas For Kids 2017 was held on Saturday morning, 12/9 from 9:00am to 12:00pm.  It was great to see so many kids here, enjoying the crafts/activities, singing joyfully and learning about their Savior Jesus.  Thank you to everyone who helped out!

Join us for worship this Advent Season every weekend and every Wednesday as familiar faces like Gabriel and Zechariah and Elizabeth and Mary and Joseph and John the Baptist all tell us who’s coming as we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Savior.
