We’re kicking off the season with an Advent Souper Supper downstairs in Friendship Hall at 5 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 27. A fun evening of Christmas carols, crafts and fellowship. Everyone is invited. Bring soup or dessert to share. 

On Saturday, Dec. 3, we’re hosting a Christmas Craft Program and Pizza Party for our children , starting at 10 a.m. We will make crafts and baking cookies for our homebound members. All children are welcome.

Multifaith Service on Thanksgiving Eve
