This Sunday – December, 16th!

The following is a special message from B.J.:

This Sunday is a special Sunday as we host our annual Christmas Cantata during the Worship Service.  In addition, the Children’s Christmas Nativity Play that was supposed to be last week will now take place this Sunday.  All children who are in the play are asked to be in the Sanctuary at 9:15 AM on Sunday to practice.  If these events do not get you in the Christmas spirit, then I don’t know what will!  I hope to see you there as we celebrate the birth and the coming back of Jesus Christ.  God Bless.
