Third Sunday of Advent, December 11, 2022
Reverend Larry Walter, Interim Minister
We will light the third candle of the season: Joy
Waiting With Expectation
The Third Candle of Advent is known as the candle of Joy. It is also known as the Shepherds Candle. We light it with a joyous sense of anticipation and expectancy. We think of the angel’s announcement of “good tidings of great joy.”
Our next work day is Tuesday, December 20, 2022. Bring your own snacks and drink. Take breaks on your own and we will leave as soon as everything is done and equipment cleaned and put away. Please see Calvin Motoda if you would like to volunteer your time and help to maintain our beautiful church grounds. We work on the first and third Tuesday of the month.

The church thrift store is open on Wednesdays. Store hours are from 10 am to 2 pm. In addition to every Wednesday, the store is open on the first Saturday of the each month, from 10 am to 2 pm.
Thank you for your support!
