Angel Tree Shoppers AND Deliverers Needed

Angel Tree provides a child a loving and tangible connection with their incarcerated parent at Christmas.


Choose one of two ways to sponsor a child:

1.   Pick an angel off the Angel Tree in the narthex ...OR…

2.    Sign up online to sponsor a child  


Each child will receive two gifts, one fun toy/gift plus a gift of clothing. You shop, wrap and return them to the church by Sunday, December 12 by 11:00 AM. 


If you'd rather not shop, donations are being accepted. Let volunteer shoppers do the legwork for you! Volunteers are also needed to deliver the gifts to the families on Sunday December 19th following worship. Sign up in the narthex at the angel tree table or contact Barb Blanke directly at barbblanke20@gmail.com.

Candle Lighting on Zoom

Sundays in Advent at 7:00 p.m.


All ages are welcome to join us on Zoom each Sunday evening in Advent as we light a candle each week. All you need is 4 candles or an advent wreath... and wear your PJs if you like! We will sing, do a little show-and-tell, reflect on the season, and we will all light our Advent candle for that week. This gathering will be about 20 mins.

  • A traditional printed devotional called In the Fullness of Time, featuring the writings of priest, writer and theologian Henri Nouwen, available in the entryway at church.

The Great Resignation

December 12 @ 9:30 and noon, 30-minute conversation in Palmer Hall 


There are a record number of people leaving their jobs in search of more flexibility and more happiness and better compensation. Many are rethinking what work means to them, how they are valued, and how they spend their time. Some are leaving their jobs and looking for new employment because they want a life that contains more meaning and connection. Others are making similar decisions around volunteer commitments. Amy will host a conversation about how this is playing out in our lives and the ways in which God may be at work as we seek to live more abundant, connected, thoughtful lives.
