We Need a Little Muscle So We Can Have a Little Christmas
Immediately following the 10:30 service THIS SUNDAY, December 9, we need to move 15 or so platforms in the sanctuary to prepare for the Choir Cantata and The Children's Narrative on Sunday, December 16. If you can stay/return and help, please do. These are relatively heavy, awkward boxes, so please self-select.

"The Hopes and Fears of All The Years"
Sunday, December 16, 2018--9:00 & 10:30 a.m
Chancel Choir, Crown Brass, Flute, Clarinet and you!
“The hopes and fears of all the years, are met in thee tonight.” This, the closing line from the first verse of that favorite carol "O Little Town of Bethlehem," is one of those pithy phrases that says and means so much more than mere words. They are Jesus Christ, the light of the world, dwelling in and with each of us. Meet Joseph, two 911 firefighters, and a newborn baby, and hear the story of unconditional love in story and song anew.
