Outreach News:  There are only about 10-12 angels left on the tree! Gifts will be due back by December 7th. Please be sure to sign up for the angel you take. If you cannot make it to services, the office staff will be happy to help you obtain an angel. Thank you for all you do!

Pageant Rehearsals:

Two more rehearsals remain for the December 18th Christmas pageant, but it's not too late to join. There is just one speaking part left but we need a larger number of non-speaking shepherds and angels. Join us December 7th, and December 14th at 5:30 in the Sanctuary.  To sign up, please click here. We can't wait to present the pageant to the congregation on December 18th at 11:00 a.m. service.
