ADULT ADVENT STUDY - We will be offering a brand new class for adults during Advent. The class will follow a program called “Pausing on the Road to Bethlehem: a spiritual journey through Advent”. This is not a traditional Advent study, but will be an exciting new venture in adult studies. It is an interactive program for participants, with Bible passages related to the Birth Story, group activities with reflections using poetry, music, and art; and prayer, both traditional and meditative. There will also be suggestions for take- home activities. The classes will meet at 6:30 p.m. Sunday evenings during Advent, starting Sunday, November 30. All are welcome! A children’s track will be offered as well. If you are interested in finding out more about the class, pick one of the flyers in the Narthex on Sunday mornings.

Special Communion Sunday Food Donation - The food collected at worship on Sunday, December 7 (Communion Sunday) will go to the Westbank Second Harvest Foodbank, because they are having a hard time getting enough to feed those in need there. Please donate generously.
