"Slow down you move too fast" might be lyrics to a song that some of you will know. Familiar or not with the song, you are sure to connect with the need to take some time to reflect. I might rewrite the next line of the song as "you got to make Advent last." Advent, you ask? Yes, you know the four Sundays before Christmas. It's the Church's intentional time to prepare for the coming of the Christ-child. Yes, you are correct, it is not four weeks before Christmas yet (yes, you are right Momma Jane).

In an effort to be a little more "green," as of Sunday, November 4, our Sunday morning Coffee Hour will no longer use paper or styrofoam cups for Coffee or plastic forks, knives or spoons. Hosts of the Fellowship Hour will put out mugs and silverware. We ask that you place your dirty mug or utensil(s) in the sink (or bin provided). Doing our part to protect the environment! Be the change you wish to see in the world.
