The Advent and Christmas Season will be upon us soon! Here are some things you should know-
Special Music: During Advent and the Christmas season, we sing some of our favorite songs and hymns. We are looking for any interested singers or musicians who would like to share their musical talents with the congregation. This could look like special music on one of the Sundays of Advent or an ensemble on Christmas Eve. Reach out to Keith and Laura and let’s see what we can put together!
