The deacons are organizing caroling, to take place on December 18. We will meet at the church at 6 PM and then travel to houses to carol for those who request caroling, or who have been recommended. If you would be interested in caroling, or if you’d like to have us stop at your house (or if you can suggest a person for us to visit), contact the church office.
To visit a house, we need a name, address, and phone number. We will use that information to contact the person and confirm that they will be around for a visit that night.
Here is this year’s Festival of Lessons & Carols video, featuring readings and performances from some of our own congregants, as well as from many other area churches.

We will have a Special Business Meeting right after church on Sunday, December 19 when we will vote to accept the compensation agreement for and to call Nat Erickson as our full-time pastor. Any questions or comments, please reach out to the Pastoral Search Committee.
