Come join us for advent!


On Dec. 12th, renowned Broadway actor Duffy Hudson will be doing a one man performance of Charles Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol at the Congregational Dinner. The menu will consist of a Christmas ham with all of the trimmings...and congregation members are encouraged to bring desserts to share...which just might make this the best meal of the year. Hope to see you there at 6:30 on Dec. 12.

heifer international alternative giving

Heifer International is an amazing ministry in which we not only offer life-changing livestock to families in need, but they in turn "pass on the gift" of offspring to other families in need, perpetuating the impact of the gift exponentially. You will find our tables set up in the foyer of Fellowship Hall and in the Gathering Space.  The hours are prior to and immediately following each service.  Please make your checks payable to the church and mark them "Heifer."  Consider giving the gift of life for Christmas 2018. Thank you from your Mission Team.

Church-wide Ski Trip

The church will be headed on a ski trip to North Carolina for Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.  Weekend. We will leave church on Friday, Jan. 18th right after work and stay at a church along the way. We will then make our way on Saturday to Beech Mountain in North Carolina for an evening of skiing. We will be staying in a beautiful group lodge. We will have a full day of skiing on Sunday, Jan. 20. We will make our way back on Monday, Jan. 21st. The early-bird discount is just $200 for a trip that could easily cost twice that.  Registration deadline will be Sunday Dec. 30th, but there will be an early bird discount for those that book by Dec. 1. Please save the date, and contact our Youth Leader, D, with questions at
