Special Prayer Chain Message





After years of coordinating the prayer chain, Nancy Kent has asked to take a break so she can devout her time to caring for Dan. As is often the case, someone has jumped into the gap. Suzanne Kaisch has offered to serve as prayer chain coordinator! Thanks be to God! Warren and Doris Knape will continue to be backup. Since our office answering machine is still on the fritz, I wanted to be sure to get this information out to you.

Christmas Services

Christmas Services
We will have two services on Christmas Eve (Wednesday night). The Christmas Eve Family Service, which is especially designed to include children, will have an impromptu Christmas pageant and communion in the church, followed by a birthday party for Jesus with balloons, gifts, and cake in the parish hall. Delightful, spontaneous, and fun.This service will be at 5 pm

The second service will be the Christmas Eve Candlelight Service with choir and communion. Beautiful, uplifting, and divine. This service will be at 10 pm.

On Christmas Day (Thursday) we will have a service with music and communion. Intimate and heartwarming. This service will be at 10am. 

Come join us to celebrate the entrance of Jesus into the world and into our hearts!
