MAKING SPIRITS BRIGHT! Let’s gather in the church on the Tuesday, after Christmas, to keep the joy in the season by sharing in a fun and informal Christmas Carol sing-along!
Together, we’ll sing religious and secular favorites like
- “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,”
- “Let It Snow,”
- “Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer,”
- “Joy to the World,” and many more!
It will be all music, friendship, smiles and laughs. Bring friends and family, and SING, SING, SING! Tuesday, December 27, 7:00 pm.
If upon reading this you would like to help organize providing hot chocolate and treats after the sing-a-long in the Social Hall that would be great.

ARISE Season IV
New Heart, New Spirit
Arise IV begins the week of February 14th and will continue for six consecutive weeks. Season IV will take us on a journey guided by the message proclaimed and celebrated in the liturgies of Lent and Holy Week. The themes each week will prepare us for the wonderful celebration of the Easter Vigil, while helping us to reflect on the times we are exposed to temptation and can fall into sin. Please join us this Lenten Season “and ARISE” as we are renewed and strive to live as the children of light.
Contact Linda in Adult Faith Formation with any questions or for more information on the ARISE program.
