A message from Rev. Diane Christianson

Dear Friends,

Advent and Christmas begin the new church year.  The list of worship services for these two seasons is below.  New this year:  We'll sing our way from Advent to Christmas each Sunday during Advent; that is, we'll begin worship with an Advent hymn and close with a Christmas carol.  May you experience the presence of God during this celebration of Jesus' birth!
