Watch and pray! It's a regular refrain when our Lord talks about His second coming: Watch and pray so that His return does not catch you by surprise. One of the ways we do that is by setting aside time for prayer and God’s Word. We offer the chance to do that during the season of Advent in our Midweek Services Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m.

We are happy to welcome our new secretary, Mrs. Tracey Reinbold, to our church office. Tracey brings valuable skills and experience that will certainly be a blessing to our ministry. She will be working from the office in the school. Her office hours will be Monday 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.; Wednesday 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.; and Thursday 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Our Thursday morning Women's Bible Study is about to begin a new study on the book, "Sip, Savor, and Drink Deeply: Receive God's Overflowing Gifts" by Deb Burma. All women of the congregation are invited to join us as we take time to be refreshed by God’s word and fellowship.
This year we are blessed to have some new decorations hung in our sanctuary: Chrismons. We have had Chrismons for some time, until they had to be retired last year because their condition had deteriorated. We are very thankful to the ladies of our LWML for making new ones. (Click this link to read more about the design of the new Chrismons and the meaning of the symbols used.)
The church council has scheduled a special voters' meeting for Sunday, January 7, 2018, immediately following the service (since we will be on our new schedule-- one service at 9:00 a.m.-- it will start at approximately 10:15). At the meeting we will update the congregation on our financial standing and propose a stewardship program and budget measures that might be taken to address the situation. Your input is very important as we discuss and decide these matters.
After significant discussion in response to the survey of our members that was done earlier in the year, we will be changing from two services each Sunday to only one. Starting January 7, 2018, we will have one service at 9:00 a.m. with Bible study and Sunday School following.
