Hanging of the Greens Nov. 30th after service
Plan to stay after church November 30th. We will bring in the holiday with the decorating of our sanctuary.
Families are encouraged to take part in this event. Children will be invited to the Arlund Room to learn and sing Christmas Carols with Elaine. Lunch will be provided. This event is a great opportunity to get to know someone better.

Our Capital Journey continues….
With Giant Steps completed –
Our Sanctuary roof has been replaced and new skylights are installed.
Our Parking Lot has been resurfaced and striped.

And Planning for kitchen updates is well underway.

Your generosity makes it all possible. With over $380,000 received so far, we are more than half way to the $672,000 pledged, in less than a quarter of our three year journey.

Thanks to all and also to our CapIT Committee for their dedication and perseverance! So let's celebrate surpassing the halfway mark and completion of two huge goals!
