About the Bible: Bible Study to begin Tuesday, January 19

The Bible is the backbone of our Christian faith, a chief source of our knowledge of God. But how much do we really know about the Bible itself? Who wrote it? And when? And why? How does it apply to life today?

Our winter/spring Bible study looks at these and other questions. Our primary resource is a book called About the Bible: Short Answers to Big Questions, by Terence Fretheim. We’ll also take a look at passages used in our Sunday services.

Those interested will meet virtually, Tuesdays at 10 am, starting on January 19, for 10 weeks. Contact Pastor Jan if you’re interested in joining this discussion.

Christmas Eve, the First Sunday of Christmas and the Christmas Joy offering!

Christmas Eve Outdoor (and Online) Candlelight Service 6:00 pm in the parking lot
Please join us for this brief service of lessons and carols! You are welcome to stay in your car or bring a chair for the service. You will be guided to a spot that is a designated safe distance from others. Do wear a mask, however, especially if you wish to sing! You may bring your own electric or live candle for the conclusion of the service, but bring your own light, as we will not be passing the flame (or the virus!) this year.  (See below for online link)

We will worship with the Presbytery this Sunday, December 27. The service is pre-recorded using musical offerings from various congregations, including our own Jubellation Ringers.

This week and next, we are reminded to contribute to the Christmas Joy Offering. Each year during the Advent and Christmas season, we turn our eyes to Bethlehem and celebrate the wondrous gift of Jesus Christ, our Savior.
God has blessed the Church with incredible leadership in every time and place, but those leaders often need to be supported by their communities as well. This Offering addresses the support needed by some of our leaders, including supporting leadership development for communities of color, and providing support for Presbyterian church workers in their time of need.
Just send in your offering to church and mark in the memo “Christmas Joy”. We have a new locked mailbox, so there are absolutely no worries mailing your offering.
