December Worship

This Advent and Christmas season we hope you can join us for Sunday morning worship.
You don’t want to miss a Sunday! Every Sunday, the choir will sing and we will have
traditional carols. Invite your friends and family this season. You never know when
someone might be looking for a church family to call home.
We are also looking for people to read and light the Advent candle wreath each Sunday.
Please see Pastor Cynthia if you would like to do this.
