Dear Friend,

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are enjoying the long Thanksgiving weekend! FYI, the church office will be closed today, Friday, November for the Thanksgiving Holiday.

Our Sunday Service begins at 10:00 am In-Person and on Facebook Live for those who cannot physically attend.

The scripture reading for this Sunday, The First Sunday of Advent, November 27 is Matthew 24:37-44. Here is a synopsis of the reading: Jesus tells his disciples that the coming of the Son of Man will catch many people unprepared. Jesus tells his disciples that they are to always be ready for the day of the Lord. Please come to Sunday worship prepared to hear the Word of God proclaimed; we invite you to read the scripture passage before service. The music for this Sunday can be found on the top-right hand corner of our website.

Start Reading Your Advent Book
this Sunday!

For those who purchased the Advent book, Waiting Here for You: An Advent Journey of Hope, Sunday is time to begin reading it everyday during the Season of Advent. Our hope is this Advent season will be a time of real spiritual growth in your relationship with Jesus and our community.
