We'll return to our regular schedules in January. Happy Holidays!


Time to Return the Boxes!

Guest at Your Table Return DateDid you take home a Guest at Your Table Box this month? It's time to bring them back for collection! Youth will be in the Commons during both coffee hours this week to collect donations and hand out candy canes to all the donors. If possible, please bring checks rather than heavy loose coins (although we will accept those as well).

Didn't take a box home? It's not too late to contribute to this good cause of supporting the work of the Service Committee all around the world! There will be donation envelopes available on Sunday.


December's Theme is Hope

Slowing the Sun


Last Sunday we explored thIMG_2543e Maori story of how Maui slowed the sun - an appropriate story for the upcoming Winter Solstice.


Discuss it at Home:


Why is the sun important to us? What does the sun do for life on this planet?

What do we do when the days are short and we don't get enough sunlight?

What would you do with a couple more hours of sunlight in the day?


Faith Adventure:

Get in touch with the sun at home by building your own Sun Dial!
