Events - All are welcome
Our Midweek Advent Services: At our midweek service on the Eve of the Solstice, December 20th, we shall offer support and comfort especially to those who may experience the holidays as also a time of grief and loss. This so-called "Blue Christmas" service offers a precious occasion for healing and hope.
Christmas Poinsettias To sign up for Christmas flower donations, use the sign up sheet in the narthex. You may dedicate your contribution in memory or honor of a loved one.
Pledge Cards for 2018 can be returned in the offering plate or sent to the church office. Please give your support and help us plan for this important year in our church's life.
Offering Envelopes for 2018 are now available in the sanctuary. They are arranged alphabetically. Please pick up yours.

Christmas Luncheon - Join us for the Annual Christmas Luncheon which will be held Sunday, December 17 in the Parish Hall immediately following the service and Christmas Pageant!
Due to the hectic time of the year, our Fellowship Ministry is suggesting to keep it simple but festive. This year we are asking members to bring appetizers, “heavy” hors d'oeuvres, and dessert. (The idea is a “tapas” or “browsing” meal rather than a full-scale dinner.)* The Fellowship Team will provide the beverages.
*Some suggestions are bruschetta, fruit/vegetable trays, cheese and crackers, chicken satay, small simple sandwiches, mini-quiches (can be found at Trader Joe's), Swedish meatballs, spring rolls, or any other type of tapas. Vegetarian items are welcome, as well as kid-friendly items for younger members.
Contact Kate Olson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-327-2880 for more information.
