Caption: One of the pleasures of our Sunday worship is our fellowship
downstairs in the dining room afterward. Conversation flows easily; it’s a
nice chance to talk and relax with friends as a new week begins. In this
photo, we see (l-r) Jim Drumm, Phil Burdick, Dick Smith, and Fremont
Clow enjoying each other’s company.

Choir rehearses at 7:00 PM on Tuesday evenings, here at the church. 
We are preparing for Christmas. The music of Christmas is a very special
part of our Christmas celebration. The music of Christmas is filled with
love and hard work, but there is nothing that can make one feel more full of
the Christmas spirit. Come see, come try… 
Once again we will be doing a live nativity for Christmas. We need
actors, choir members, props, and people to make soup and sandwiches for
our actresses and actors. We’ve also talked about having a few folks make
some posters. This year it will be on December 16th, from 5:00 to 6:00 PM.
Let’s make this a beautiful event for our neighborhood. If you wish to be
involved, you know what to do - sign up on the sign-up sheet!!
