Renee Azzopradi is leading a women's study, a Chai n Chat group, that will start on Monday December 4 and will be three weeks long.   The group will meet at 7pm at Renee's home, 6 Pleasant St. Potsdam.

The study will be focused on the book "Who Switched Off My Brian" learning how our brains work and how important it is to guard our minds.

This study is a stand alone but will also function a preparation for a study on " Battlefields of the Mind" starting in January.


Join us Saturday, December 9 at 2pm  at the Maplewood Assisted Living Center in Canton (205 State Street Road)! The  caroling time will be short and simple including a few traditional carols and a short message from Pastor Jamie. 

This event is for everyone: families, singles, and couples of all ages. We want to bless the residents by bringing a Christmas service to them. Even if singing isn't your thing, come to fellowship with the residents!

And, kids, feel free to make homemade Christmas cards to give to residents!
