A team of people gathered Wednesday, Nov. 11 to pack 1,900+ bags to distribute over seven weeks to students in three local schools. The team worked hard to get all of the bags to the students before they left school, and are proud kids also received a goodie bag with fun stuff, extra food, and a large jar of peanut butter.
This Christmas Eve, we gather outside at 6 p.m. around the main entrance to the church building for a short, standing worship service. We sing carols, hear the Christmas story with a brief reflection, and light candles as we sing Silent Night.
Sign-up to take part in our Christmas Goodie Exchange, and share your talents with others by providing five dozen servings of your treat by noon on Saturday, Dec. 19. Then pick up your assortment of goodies on Sunday, Dec. 20 or Monday, Dec. 21.
Many of us experience a mixed bag of emotions in what is known as a cheerful time of year, and this is especially true for 2020. Blue Christmas offers sacred space for those who wish to mark the coming of Christ in a quieter, more contemplative way. Sign-up is required.
The FaithBuilders and Youth Group Christmas Party is Sunday, Dec. 20 via Zoom. FaithBuilders meets at 5 p.m. and Youth Group meets at 6:15 p.m. Sign-up by Thursday, Dec. 17 to receive the goodies in time for the party!
RLC Kids (birth through fifth grade) are invited to join us for Christmas Songs and Stories on Sunday, Dec. 13 at 11 a.m.! We’ll sing some songs, hear a story, and celebrate Christmas together via Zoom. Please sign-up online or email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the Zoom link.
