“O Christmas Treeā€¦”

Another beautiful Christmas tree graces our narthex, reminding us of God’s grace and mercy.

And the sanctuary also is decorated to the glory of God and his gift to the world of his Son, Jesus. We invite you to join us to worship the Father and the Son, by whose grace our sins are forgiven and by our acceptance of that atonement our lives are made whole.
