Gratitude Sunday

Sunday, November 24, 2019 - 11:30am

We celebrate God's work by sharing a meal on Sunday, November 24th with First Baptist Church at 11:30am (after the Education Hour).  We share our thanks both to God and to the members of First Baptist for helping us through this past year. The Robinson Family will again make a sumptuous Thanksgiving Feast.  We request a $10 donation for all participants above age 10; children 10 and under are free, and complimentary tickets are available for those who cannot afford the $10 fee. Tickets sell out, so get yours online here

Advent is Right Around the Corner and ...

The Worship, Music and The Arts Committee has been busy planning an exciting Advent season!  There are a few special talents that we need:

4. Hanging of the Greens

5. Communion Bread and Wine....we would like family units to make and present them at the services throughout Advent and Epiphany...the bread and wine would have to be at Church the Saturday before. Read more »
