Wednesday Dec 14, 9:30am–Bell Ringing in Columbarium
Bell RingingTen years ago this December 14, the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting took place in Newtown, CT. We’ll take time to ring the bell in our Columbarium at 9:30am on December 14–the time the event took place–along with a short time of prayer. We’ll be grieving this loss, as well as the other gun violence losses that came before and since–particularly in schools. We’ll also remember the losses of the recent shooting at Club Q in Colorado Springs.

Sunday Dec. 18, 9:45am-11:45pm–Nativity Set Display
Nativity DisplayShare a favorite nativity set with the congregation on Sunday Dec. 18! We’ll have tables set up outside the sanctuary for you to set it out before the worship service–so come early that morning!–and display it afterwards for a bit, giving everyone a chance to look at them before you take it home again that morning. (We’ll have refreshments after worship that day, too.) **Please let the church office know if you’re bringing any Nativities so she can set up enough table space. And if you’d like to bring it in earlier than Dec. 18, please arrange that with the office.
