· Christmas packs are ready for pick up in the fellowship hall. Bags are labeled with names for children ages 2 through 5th grade. Please feel free to take a friend or neighbor's bag to them that may not be here to pick those up.
On Christmas Eve, come to Pigeon River for a Drive-in worship service at 7PM. Bring your own lights to shine and your smart phone to download a song lyric sheet. When you arrive, you will be directed to a parking spot, turn off your car lights and tune your radio to a specific frequency number. (to be determined) Join us in welcoming the coming of our Savior from the comfort of your car. We will conclude the service by shining our lights; and weather permitting, launching several lit lanterns into the nighttime sky. For updated details, go to our website.
In 2020, we have watched the family become more important in many aspects of our children's lives at all stages of the journey. As we walk into 2021, gain encouragement for your children's spiritual growth with Pastor Bill whether you are soon to be a parent for the first time, in the thick of it now, or coming alongside your adult children. Join us for a six-week small group to discuss ways of helping our children grow in their faith, as we come alongside each other to learn from and support one another on the road of faith. Watch for additional details in the coming weeks and contact Pastor Bill with questions or to sign up.
