New Worship Series
Sometimes we only need a new perspective to see that
"It's a Wonderful Life" after all...
​In the classic film, “It’s a Wonderful Life,” a financial crisis creates vastly diverse reactions from several characters that can hold up a mirror to our own outlook on life during times of stress or anxiety. But what happens when we change our focus? In this four-week series, we'll be challenged to look at our own discouraging times in a compassionate way, in order to find the joy and meaning that can give us a new outlook on life!

We know that many in our community are facing hardships now. Your generosity in giving faithfully to our church helps support ministries that are filling the gaps, both spiritually and physically.

Volunteers are needed at worship to greet, be the liturgist, and more. There are also slots to sign up to stock the Comet Cupboard. The Cupboard will be doing another grocery distribution on November 7th.
