Once again we have partnered with North Kent Connect to provide for those in need during the holidays. Our Tree of Hope is up and we are accepting donations through December 5th.

'J'Seekers Christmas

The J’Seekers Christmas program will be Sunday, December 12th at both services. We would look forward to you joining us in celebration as we take time to remember the birth of Jesus by participating in a special presentation to our church family.  

We are hoping to have some elementary age children willing to help with the narrative parts to the Christmas program. These speaking parts are sharing the Christmas story through scripture and will be split among the narrators.  If you have a child who may be interested in a speaking part and they are able to participate in BOTH services on Dec. 12th, please contact Christine or Anna as soon as possible.

We will have an area set up in the church for photo opportunities after each of our services. Great time for a family photo!  

Rehearsals will be Sunday, Dec. 5th from 12:00 – 1:15pm (after 2nd service), Thursday, Dec. 9th  6:15pm-6:45pm for Pre-school and 6:30-7:30 for grades K-5th.
