Hello everyone and welcome to a new week. Not only is it a new week but we begin a new church year because this is the first week of Advent.
Our theme this week is HOPE! That is something we can all use and appreciate. We begin our tradition of lighting the Advent Candles each week in Advent. Our hymns sing out Hope and our Scriptures tell of Hopeful days and times to come.
This Sunday we are in person only. It is a Venturer Camp weekend for our Video Crew. Please join us for a wonderful time of Worship and of Fellowship in our church Sanctuary and Hall.
If you have an announcement, prayer request or for hymn or scripture readings, please contact us! Messages may be left on the church telephone at (416)762-3960.
