•Sing songs of the season, starting with Advent songs, and working our way into Christmas songs

•Share a brief reflection on the Biblical story for the week (in addition to our congregational conversation)

•Share a potluck meal - bring your favorite dishes, abundance, foods of the season…

This church has lots of young people and also under-used grandparents! But very few children. Come help grow our children and youth program - a curriculum for "peace allies" is under development. But if you need family, baby-sitters, relationship connections, that's all ready right now. Come see what you think. It is a lovely, small, trust-worthy, joyful congregation!  :-)

¡Esta iglesia tiene muchos jóvenes y abuelos subutilizados! Pero muy pocos niños. Venga a ayudar a crecer nuestro programa para niños y jóvenes: se está desarrollando un plan de estudios para "aliados de la paz". Pero si necesita familiares, niñeras, relaciones de pareja, ya está todo listo. Ven a ver lo que piensas. ¡Es una congregación encantadora, pequeña, digna de confianza y alegre! :-)
