December 17 Third Sunday in Advent

Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy... Psalm 126:2



Tonight's Christmas pageant rehearsal has been canceled due to the snow--up to seven inches expected by end of day. Rehearsal has been rescheduled for tomorrow evening (12/14) at five o'clock. Chime and chancel choir rehearsals are also canceled tonight and are tentatively rescheduled for Thursday evening as well (6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.).


 May the Peace of God Be Your Peace

 May the peace of God be your peace.
 May the love of God be the love you show.
 May the joy of God be the joy you know,
 and may the world that God would see
 be found in you.

December 3

There will be a special Hanging of the Greens service during worship. And, the actual hanging of the greens will take place in the afternoon beginning at 3 o'clock. The youth will take a tractor ride out to Scadin woods to get the tree. Crafts and baking will begin in the fellowship hall while the tree is being put up in the sanctuary. There will be a light supper (soup and sandwiches), the tree will be decorated, and then everyone will meet up in the sanctuary to sing carols.


Sunday, November 26 marks the last week of the Christian Year; the next week we move into Advent. November 26 is Reign of Christ or Christ the King Sunday. It is a good time to look back on Year A and think of all the times Christ was present among us - in the face of the hungry, the thirsty, the stranger, the naked, the sick person or the one in prison. Just as the disciples wondered, "What will it be like when Christ returns again and the Reign of Christ on earth is a reality?" so we too wonder what it will be like. From Seasons of the Spirit.
