As you may have heard on the radio or on your trip to the mall, Christmas music is already playing!  All I can think is "What about the Advent music?!"  Perhaps one of the most overlooked season of the church year, Advent (the first season of the church year) is a time for us to think about the birth of our Savior Jesus - Emmanuel, God with us.  Believe it or not, Advent starts at the end of November!  How great would it be for us to hear bells each week during Advent when we sing our Kyrie at the beginning of worship?  Bells need to be rung - which is why we need you to ring them! 

If you can count to four, you can ring a bell so no musical talent required!  See Zach to sign up or to ask questions!

Collecting Food for the Hungry and Homeless

As the weather begins to change, life for those who are hungry and homeless becomes even more difficult. Please bring non-perishable food items and place them in the baskets at the sanctuary entrance. The food we collect will be taken to the food pantry at Trinity Lutheran Church, Lower Eastside.


Healing Services

We offer brief healing services on the 1st and 3rd Sundays each month. These are powerful times of anointing and prayer. They are held in the sanctuary after the 11 AM service.
