  • CHILDREN’S CHRISTMAS PAGEANT – Our youth will be presenting the Christmas story on Sunday, December 15th during our morning worship service.  Be sure to mark your calendars – you won’t want to miss it!!

  • ADVENT 2019 –  We will be starting our Advent Services on November 24th  This is to allow time for the children’s pageant on December 15th.   The title for this year’s Advent is: “The Cast of Christmas.”  The cast starts with The Prophets, then moves on to The Angels, The Shepherds, The Magi, and finally, YOU and ME.  Come join us as we prepare our hearts for ‘the reason for the season.’
  • CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICE – On Christmas Eve, we will celebrate with our annual candlelight service at 5:30PM.
  • A NIGHT OUT – Even under the best of circumstances, parenting teenagers presents its fair share of challenges.  It is easy to feel like you are the only one struggling on this wild ride of adolescence.  The truth is that it’s not only your kid being just that – a kid.  A Night Out is a bi-weekly support group for mothers, giving you an opportunity to share experiences, offer support, and recharge your emotional battery so you can keep up with teens on the go!  Join us at Skidompha LIbrary every other Monday, beginning on January 6th from 4:30-6:00PM.  The drop-in rate per group is $30 or join all 8 sessions for $200.  Please email lyndakeramy@gmail.com for more information!
