Microphone for Announcements
When you wish to make an announcement, please indicate your intention by raising your hand and someone will come to you with a microphone.
To work effectively, the microphone needs to be held very close...within an inch of your mouth.
We are very lucky to have the microphones available so that everyone can hear important announcements. Do not be bashful in using them!

2019 Christmas Fund for Veterans of the Cross and the Emergency Fund
In this holy and joyous time of year, our thoughts turn to the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, the light of the world.
For 118 years, the Christmas Fund for the Veterans of the Cross and the Emergency Fund has been a way in which we, as members of the United Church of Christ and the predecessor denominations, reflect the love of Jesus Christ in the lives of the many women and men who have so faithfully and selflessly served, and who now find themselves facing unforeseen financial crises.
The offering will be dedicated on Sunday, December 22. An offering envelope is included in the church bulletin each week.
