Renew 20-21 Update
One month down! We are now at a point in construction where we can have a window in the temporary wall by the elevator so you can now take a peek at the ongoing construction. We’ve also posted a few pictures on the blog of the changes in that space over the past month. Thank you for all your support and excitement as this project continues to move ahead! See blog post>>>

Christmas Eve Candlelight Services
Friday, December 24, 4:00 and 5:30 pm
Join us on Christmas Eve for carols, candlelight, and a Christmas message. We’ll have two services you can choose between this year—4:00 and 5:30 pm. The 4:00 service will be livestreamed and available to replay as a video afterward. All children will sit with their family during these services

Union Rescue Mission Christmas Bags
We were able to hand out all 150 bags to meet our goal in partnering with the Union Rescue Mission by providing Christmas presents for their overnight guests! If you picked up a bag, please remember to return it by next Sunday, December 12, with the Bible and requested items so we can deliver them to the URM.

Manger Tree
Through the end of December, you’ll see the Manger Tree in the hallway outside the worship center. Include others in your celebration of Christmas by joining our missions partner Embrace in supporting families in need. Simply pick an ornament from the tree and return the listed baby item (unwrapped) to the crib next to the tree by the end of the year!

Christmas Treats
Every year we prepare Christmas treats for homebound members and those who have lost a spouse. We’re looking for help delivering these bags of goodies on Saturday, December 4, starting at 9:30 am! If interested, please contact Susan Syrios.
