Nativity Scenes Display
Arts Alive! Ministry will display Nativity scenes during Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany. Please help us enrich this wonderful season by sharing your own nativity sets and begin now to bring them out of storage. Take in will be on November 29th, the Sunday after Thanksgiving. There will be a table in the Commons area near the Library before and after 10:30 worship. Be sure to include your name and a description on a card or note. We look forward to displaying all kinds of nativity symbols of our Lord's birth.

They are gratefully accepting new OR used items in this worthwhile service project. Donations can be left at the church office anytime BEFORE Thanksgiving. Thank you!
