Covid Caroling!

Itching to sing some Christmas carols?  Miss seeing your fellow church members? Join a Covid Caroling Contingent!

If you would like to join a small group to spread musical cheer, sign up HERE by December 7. Each group will be assigned some congregation members to visit (outside their abode); date/time will be worked out within your group. Caroling books provided.

As we are all a little more “shut-in” than usual, if you would particularly like a visit from carolers, contact our Cantor to make sure you are on the list!

Our choirs always welcome new participants. Contact our Cantor, Dr. Priscilla Gabriel, for more details or to get involved.

The world is watching to see if the words of Jesus have any authority in our daily lives. If our actions do not match the words we share on Sunday or in our Bible Study, then they can do more harm than good. Our Christian faith needs to carry on into our back yard while we are mowing, and while we are watching sports, and in our conversations at the mall.

Our Lord promises to exalt those who humbly serve Him for His sake at all times. This may be our most powerful witness: serving Him at all times and in all places. Pray for the Holy Spirit to bless our witness while the world is constantly watching as we serve Christ.
