God's Generous Table
Did you know that Methodists believe in saints? While we don’t have a special sainthood the way that Catholics do, we believe each and every Christian is a saint. That’s right: You are a saint!
So for us, All Saints’ Day is an opportunity to remember and honor all of those in our community who have died. This Sunday, you’re invited to celebrate the saints who made a difference in your life and gather at the Communion table, God’s Generous Table, where all the saints who have gone before us and all those who will come after us come together. Join us in person or online for this special time of worship! Pastor Virginia

Warning of Scam
Last weekend several church members received a text message that appeared to be from Pastor Patti, asking for help, specifically gift cards. This is a common scam that can also be in the form of an email. Be assured, Pastor Patti will NEVER contact you asking for financial help. If you receive such a text/email please report it as a scam. And never give any money or gifts cards, or engage the sender in any way. This is an unfortunate reality of our world today.

Dive deep into the history of the birth of Christ
In Light of the World: A Beginner’s Guide to Advent, author, professor, and biblical scholar Amy-Jill Levine explores the biblical texts surrounding the story of the birth of Jesus. Join her as she traces the Christmas narrative through the stories of Zechariah and Elizabeth, Mary, the journey to Bethlehem, and the visit from the Magi. These stories open conversations around connections of the Gospel stories to the Old Testament, the role of women in first-century Jewish culture, the importance of Mary’s visitation and the revolutionary implications of Mary’s Magnificat, the census and the stable, and the star of Bethlehem and the flight to Egypt.
