Please join us for another wonderful Advent Dinner on Sunday, December 8th. It is a festive and meaningful way to start the Christmas season and includes a catered meal, lots of fun and fellowship, and the long-awaited Christmas pageant by our preschoolers through 5th graders. After dinner we will join together in singing Christmas carols around the yule log with family and friends. There is no charge to attend this amazing event, but a free will donation is always welcome.
