All are welcome at the intergenerational event that will kick off the Advent season. Join us for a delicious brunch and stick around to make a special Advent centerpiece.

For many the holiday season is filled with family and friends sharing memories and meals together. For others this season is a painful reminder that their is someone missing from the festivities. Still others struggle with loneliness the most during this time. We want to offer a place for everyone to come around table and enjoy a meal together. On December 6 at 6:00pm join us for a soup and bread supper. At 7:00pm following the meal we will move to the sanctuary for a service of Evening Prayer. Here we will take time to remember those who are not with us this season and lift up our hearts to God in worship.
