Our mission: to be a sign of Christ’s love for the world.
Here are the ways we worship together.

How wonderful to worship together in our sanctuary! 
Let us be mindful to the needs of those around us.

Out of love & safety for our youngest & most vulnerable, and due to the rise in Covid-19 cases,
ALL worshipers are to wear masks while in the sanctuary.

As Matthew 7:12 says, "Treat others as you would want to be treated."
Thank you for living in Christian love with one another!

Worship Schedule
10am in the Sanctuary or on Facebook Live.

This week’s scripture lesson is:
Luke 1: 26-38, 46-55

Christmas Tree Competition
We don't have many groups signed-up for the Christmas tree decorating contest! If you want to see a forest of Christmas trees in the courtyard you should get a group together and decorate a tree! It's not too late! Tomorrow, Saturday December 4th, we have set aside time to gather and decorate trees in the courtyard! Bring your ornaments and get ready to trim the trees starting at 10am!

All trees need to be up and decorated by December 5th at 3pm! At that time, we will take pictures of all the trees to use for voting! We are so excited to see all of your beautiful Christmas trees that are sure to blow the judges away!

This year we will have judges along with the online voting portion. Judges will be looking at theme, warm & fuzzy factor, and effort!
Mark your calendars for December 12 at 4:30pm! This is when we will begin the Christmas tree walk-through before voting ends and at 5:30 we will gather to eat and enjoy everyone's company!
Sign-up here if you have a group that would like to decorate a tree!
