Christmas Memory Service – Changed to December 9, 2018

Memory Service – Changed to December 9

As you know, each Advent we hold a Memory Service to support those who have lost loved ones, by drawing the spirit of Christmas closely into their journey of healing. Typically, it is held at the 9:00 a.m. service, the first Sunday of Advent, which this year falls on December 2.

Also falling on December 2 are the Spirit Moves dancers at the 10:30 service, and our Christmas concert that night.Read more Christmas Memory Service – Changed to December 9, 2018

  • gifted leaders who give generously of their time;
  • the vision of a church open to transformation not just transition;

Single Mom, 3 Children – Refugees

Mother and three children, refugees from Egypt, recently had to sell their furnishings to pay for food and necessities.

We would like to help them by providing:

  • two queen size bed frames and one twin bed frame. (They were able to keep their mattresses)
  • a TV (we need a flat screen because their one bedroom apartment is too small to allow for the old style TV)
  • a computer or laptop to support them with their educational courses.
