Rooted In Love
It’s Not Too Late!
Haven’t sent in your pledge to the “Rooted in Love” Stewardship campaign? No problem!  
Click (here), type in the information required and hit the send button. Or you can send an email to the church office or mail your pledge form. We are also encouraging the use of Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) as it helps in stabilizing the budget process.

Thank you to all that were able to send in a pledge this past Sunday. We have received 42 pledging units for a pledge total of $107,000 for fiscal year 2022. We are hoping to raise $125,000 and we would love to hear from you.  

May love be with you!  
Your Stewardship Committee!
A Musical Note from Rich
This Sunday's postlude is an arrangement of the folk song, "Shenandoah." The tune evokes the quintessentially American holiday of Thanksgiving by honoring an especially beautiful region of our country immortalized in this classic American folk song arranged by the renowned pianist, Keith Jarrett. Sit back, close your eyes, and give thanks.

Lighting of the First Advent Candle
Reader: The star shines light years away from the magi, the manger, the shepherds, Mary, and Joseph. The light is far away, but the light shines in the darkness. The light is hope. Today, we begin our journey by the light of the star; today we light the candle of hope.
