Hallelujah! We are offering an adult class, exploring the texts of Handel’s Messiah.

We invite everyone to join us for an adult class before worship in December (1st-29th).  This is a study for the music lover and the biblical seeker. The four sessions will cover familiar pieces and texts such as, “Comfort, Comfort My People,” “Who May Abide the Day of His Coming,” “For Unto Us a Child is Born,” and “Glory to God in the Highest.” Rebecca Barth will be leading this study. Resource books for the study will be available in the office for each participant beginning on Sunday, November 24th. The study will meet in the Couser Room at 8:45 a.m., beginning December 1st. We hope to see you there!

Taize Services

We will be offering weekly Taize services (Dec. 4-18) on Wednesdays, from 6:30-7:00 p.m., in the Upper Room. Come and join us for a meditative and prayerful time of worship and music.

Project Life Christmas Party

Every year, we partner with Calvary Presbyterian Church to hold a party for the families residing at Project Life, a temporary shelter for families traveling the path out of homelessness. As part of the party, we set up a gift boutique for the families to be able to give to one another. Here’s how you can help:

1. We need to begin collecting “gifts” for our boutique. We need unwrapped new or gently used items —anything that a parent might like to give to a baby, child, or teenager, or a small item a child might like to give to a parent. We also need wrapping paper and supplies. Please bring in your donations and place them in the bin at the back of the church. 

2. We need helpers at the party on Friday, December 20th. From 2:00-7:30 p.m., we will need people to help set up the boutique, wrap gifts, and help children with their selections. You do not need to be there for the entire time period, but can sign up for a shift. See Nancy Casparian for details.

Thank you for your generosity. This event is a wonderful opportunity to help others express love for their own families and to provide joy in the midst of hard times. 

For Children!

All of our children are invited to be a part of the Christmas Pageant on Sunday, December 22nd!  The children will be preparing the pageant during Sunday School in December. We need extra adult hands to help with costuming and stage managing both on the 22nd and on Sunday,
