Spirit of the Christmas Tree

DEC 16

Sunday, Dec 16, 2018



The Adult Choir and Children’s RE will perform a traditional retelling of the birth of Christ called “The Spirit of the Christmas Tree” written by Joyce Poley..


Children’s Religious Education Our children’s RE program is volunteer-driven and because we insist upon two sets of adult eyes in each classroom, we have on-going opportunities to serve. Being a classroom assistant requires no prep time. They assist with classroom activities, stories, and participating in discussion. Our teachers receive excellent, easy to use lesson plans that are well received by the students. Volunteering one or two Sundays would be of great benefit to our children. Contact Lisa Lawrence at if you can help in any capacity.



We continue to need volunteers to set up for the social hour after Sunday service. Team 1; Prep will put out the adult and kid’s treats. Set up coffee and tea services. Team 2; coffee will make the coffee and clean the pots. Team 3; Load DW, wipe down tables, put up left over treats. You can volunteer for more than one team. Please contact the church office if you are willing and able.
