December 21, 11:00am
Invite your family and friends to hear "The Christmas Story" by Tom Fettke & Thomas Grassi. This exhilarating work is filled with glorious images of Promise, Joy, Love Faith, Worship and a Baby who is God's great gift of Salvation. It features a blend of thirteen familiar and lesser known carols representing a variety of musical styles and moods. We have chosen to accompany this year's Christmas Cantata simply, with a harp, string quartet and piano. Judith Cumming will once again play Harp with Barbara Spadavecchia: Violin, Mike Center: Cello, Anne Center: Viola, and Jim Graham: on Bass. Please join us at the second service @ 11:00am on December 21.

The Blessing of the Toys
The last Sunday in December we will have only one service at 10:00am. We will remember the gift given to us by God, his son Jesus Christ, and the gifts we received on Christmas mornings, past and present. Please bring a meaningful gift you received and there will be a time when volunteers can share the significance of their gift. This is an informal service.
