First Sunday in Advent

November 27 is
The First Sunday in Advent

Join us during the 10am Sunday School hour to  make an Advent wreath for home use!  Bring:

- an Advent wreath form, if you have one (if you don't we'll have some extras)

- evergreen clippings to share, if you have some (if you don't, we'll have plenty)


Participate in ELCA Good Gifts program

Give a family in need a hand-up by purchasing chicks, honey bees, a pig, a goat, or other types of gifts to help them succeed.  Give for the sake of giving - OR - give in honor of someone on your Christmas list, instead of buying them something they don't need.  Gifts are represented as ornaments on our Good Gifts tree, found in the Narthex.  You may participate anytime through Christmas Day.


Purchase a Poinsettia
in honor or in memory of someone to help decorate our space for the season.  A sign-up will be in the Narthex Nov. 27 & Dec. 4.  Poinsettias may be taken home after worship on Christmas Day or Jan. 1.

Chili Cook-Off this Sunday

Join us this Sunday, Nov. 6
for a
Chili Cook-Off

Donations from this event go towards Christmas presents and food for needy families in our community.

You can enter a chili or a dessert in the contest
or bring a "fixing" to go with the chili.
(People's Choice winners receive everlasting fame and glory...or they get to write their name on a plate...either way, it'll be great!)
