Advent Book Discussion

We will meet again on Mondays starting on Monday November 26th and finishing up on Monday December 17th.  We have two time slots that you choose between – one is from 1 pm to 2:30 pm and the other 7:30 to 9:00 pm.  We take time to listen to music, center ourselves and pray, both aloud and silently, share what is happening in our Advent lives and discuss "Grateful: The Transformative Power of Giving Thanks," by Diane Butler Bass. There will be a sign-up on the bulletin

board in the commons.  We hope you will join us this year.  We have regular attendees and it is always good to see them, and it would be great to see some new faces.  Peace, Rev. John & Pastor Allyssa.

Blue Christmas Service - Thursday December 13th- 7:00 pm in the Sanctuary. This service recognizes that not everyone feels jolly and joyful throughout Advent and Christmas.  We may be facing our first Christmas without a loved one; past unpleasant Advent seasons may cause us anxiety this year; the increased darkness may decrease our energy; all these reasons and others may cause us to be blue.  We want folks to know they are not alone in feeling that way, and that God is with us as we struggle with our blues, especially in the face of the joy of so many others.
