This Sunday, we will be lighting our Advent Joy candle!

"When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh."

-Matthew 2:10-11 NIV
This Sunday, Dec 16th @ 11:45am

Instead, Dress Rehearsal for Christmas Eve!
Next Sunday, we will not be holding a Sunday worship service. Instead, we will use this time to do a full dress rehearsal for our Christmas Eve service starting at 9:30 AM.

We will also be using this time to enjoy a little Christmas cheer with coffee and bagels on the patio open to all! Please feel free to bring a breakfast dish to share!
On Dec 24th at 5 PM, we will be holding our annual Christmas Eve candlelight service! There will be free childcare during the service, and food and refreshments after the service!

For those who are not able to attend in person, we will also be broadcasting our service through livestreaming on YouTube. This is also a great way to invite family and friends to join us online!

Postcard invitations are available to pass out to all those you know!
Each Christmas, we take up a special monthly offering called "Making Jesus My First Gift". This offering allows us to provide special monetary gifts to each of our former pastors & missionaries, to outside ministries we support including a gift to our Compassion child, as well as to all of those outside professionals and ministry partners who serve our church throughout the year!

Our goal is to raise $2,000 for this offering. To date, we have met our goal by receiving $2,075 !
THANK YOU to all who have so generously given to our Making Jesus My First Gift fund!
