Christmas Eve Service Please join us in the sanctuary Saturday, December 24th at 5 p.m. for our traditional “Come As You Are” family celebration.

 

Christmas Day   We will meet for worship at 10 a.m. with no Sunday School or Prayer Meeting that day. We will have an opportunity for kids to come forward and share a Christmas gift they have received! The church office will be closed on Monday, December 26th.

In Lieu of the Giving Tree and gift cards we have done in the past, this year we ask that you consider giving a donation for an item in the EFM Offering Christmas Catalog (copies can be found on the usher’s table in the foyer) or a local charity organization. As the Lord leads you share a gift, thank you.
