THE MIDWEEK BIBLE STUDY will have a holiday hiatus.  The next meeting will be on Wednesday, January 9 at 11:00 A.M. in Room B.  The purpose of our Bible Study is to dig deeper into the Scriptures, strengthen each other’s faith, and build our bonds of Christian fellowship.  You are welcome to bring a bag lunch and fellowship together following the study.


THE SUBURBAN SINGERS present their Christmas concert, “The First Noel”, in our sanctuary tonight at 7:00 P.M.  The group includes our own Gene Stremme, Kate Stremme, and Ed Paluszka.

LOST AND FOUND – Check the coat rack beneath the Sunday School bell for left behind coats and take yours home!
