Newsletter Week of December 10th

Pastor’s Piece

Well, that was fun!  What a day of music!  In case you missed it, our choir did an awesome job performing their Christmas Cantata on Sunday morning.  Then 76 of our closest family and friends were at the Main Street Music Hall that evening for a great night of music and fun!  For me, music really makes the Christmas season.

I encourage you to join us for worship this weekend as we share once again in music of the season and we consider what it means that Jesus was sent to earth to bring new life.

Blessings,

Pastor Andy

Then be prepared for a huge game of capture the flag outside on Saturday (hopefully with snowballs!!)
