Church Office Closed for November Holidays
 The church office will be closed November 25th & 26th, for the Thanksgiving Day holiday. In case of an emergency, Pastor Shaker can be reached at home.

The Wednesday evening activities will NOT take place on November 24th. The staff would like to wish you a happy and safe Thanksgiving Day and weekend! During this season of thankfulness, please remember to count the many blessings our Lord has graciously bestowed upon all of us.

Retired Ministers + Missionaries Offering

Through our faith in God, and our gratitude for the salvific actions of Jesus Christ we are called to be faithful servants of the gospel and to live out the ministry of Jesus in word and deed. The gratitude that we have for Jesus’ gift to us is the seed from which springs the gratitude that manifests toward the people of God. The Retired Ministers and Missionaries Offering supports those who have dedi- cated their lives to God’s service by pro- viding emergency assistance in times of need and a thank you check at the end of each year. We hope you will join us in honoring God’s committed servants.

Donations will be taken through the month of November. Donate online here


Decorate the Church

Sunday, November 21, at 11:30 am
Everyone is invited to an evening of holiday spirit and fun. Bring the whole family to help kick off the Christmas season 
by decorating the church. The fun will start immediately following worship at approximately 11:30. Pizza will be served for lunch but be prepared to work. The more people that help, the faster everything will get done and cleaned up. Make plans to help…this is always a fun afternoon filled with the holiday spirit.

“Hanging of the Greens”

Sunday, November 28, at 10:00 am
The congregation will be led through this special holiday service that
