The Messenger


We're a Community. 

Christian Fellowship is important as we gather and enjoy the company of fellow believers in Christ. If you are looking for a Christian community, these events are good introduction to the wonderful folks who make up our church family. You are always welcome to contact the church office for more information. Each week we publish The Messenger, a newsletter full of coming events, community activities and special requests for our church community.

This Week's "Messenger" Highlights ...  

Advent Midweek Services - Wednesdays at 6:30 pm

Advent is the four weeks immediately preceding Christmas. For Christians, this is a time of waiting, reflection and preparation. We reflect on Christ coming to us as the Babe of Bethlehem and on his coming again at the end of time.  Advent is also a time of prayer and service. We will gather on Wednesday evenings (Dec 4, 11 and 18) at 6:30 pm for an evening service, followed by a time of refreshment and community service. We will be packaging up toques made by members of our congregation over the past several months. These will be given to Cyrus Center youth shelter and Ann Davis Transition House. On December 18 we will be preparing plates of Christmas goodies for those in nearby supported housing programs. 

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

 ... to everyone who supported our quilting group by taking home all those wonderful items from the Christmas sale. Enough money was raised to purchase filling material for 100 quilts! That will warm the hearts and bodies of so many people suffering from the effects of war and natural disasters around the world.  

 

 Please pray for ...

  • Lutheran Bible Translators Mike and Kara Kuhn and their children who have returned to Canada on furlough, and will be giving presentations across the West, while Mike takes extra degree classes... And for Martin and Joan Weber who will soon be finishing their work with the Kwanja people and preparing for their upcoming retirement.
  • The individuals and communities devastated by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas and southeastern US.
