I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder. - G.K. Chesterton


The Church Office will be closed this Thursday, November 27 and Friday, November 28 in observance of Thanksgiving. We hope you and your family enjoy the holiday!



Copies of the devotional booklet, Our Daily Bread, (December through February) are available in the Narthex and Welcome Center. We invite you to pick one up.



Beginning this Sunday we will have the opportunity to once again enjoy our lovely Advent banners. Advent means a coming or arrival.  The Advent banners represent the coming of the promises of God through Christ Jesus.  The title of the banners is "Heart Root Promises of God; Hope, Peace, Joy, Love."  Using purple batiks the living, powerful energy of the Holy Spirit represents bringing forth the promises through Christ into the world.  Colors of green, blue, pink and gold batiks represent the power and ever continuing evolution of these promises.

Baron Mullis will continue the study of the Apostles Creed with "Was crucified, dead and buried. He descended into hell..." As we prepare to worship Jesus at the time of his birth, what does it mean to remember that he died? What does it mean that Jesus "descended into hell?"
