fellowship with us. Sunday School classes for all ages begin at 9:00 AM. Worship begins at 10:00 AM

love that God pours into our lives and calls us to share with others. Songs of love include: “Come Thou
Long Expected Jesus”, “Angels From the Realms of Glory,” “Infant Holy, Infant Lowly”, “Hark! The Herald
Angels Sing”, and “Joy to the World”. Jill Bomgaars will provide service music on her euphonium
