Recent Highlights & Updates

THANK YOU to the following groups of people for all they've done for us, this holiday season: to Glenn & Susan Wayman for decorating our Sanctuary & Narthex, to Bob Fluger for putting up our Christmas trees, & to all of our Music groups for getting us ready for this Christmas season!

NIGHT IN BETHLEHEM: Join us for an amazing Night in Bethlehem!  On Saturday, Dec. 14th at 6pm, kids & families will explore the city at the time of Jesus' birth.  Through hands-on experiences they'll find out about the most important baby ever & learn that Jesus came to save us!  If you would like to volunteer with this event please contact Jenny LaRose at 

CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS: As Christmas approaches, we share the joy & love brought on by the birth of Jesus, in several ways, including our "Hat & Mitten" Tree & our "Giving" Tree!  Swing by our narthex to either fill the "Hat & Mitten" Tree with donation items, or select a children's name from the "Giving" Tree to be your gift recipient this Christmas! 

ABUNDANT LIVING: We have a new endeavor called "Abundant Living Ministries" - focused on providing people with ways to keep the environment clean, live more "green," & to learn more about global environmental news & other things happening around the world.  ALM now has an Instagram page!  Click on the icon below to "follow" the page, or visit
