A menu will be sent to you by email so you can preselect your lunch to expedite your lunch and make it more easy on the wait staff. At this time, we have 2 vehicles able to travel.

THIS WEEK IN WORSHIP
Our Advent sermon series, "God With Us" continues this week. Sunday's message is "The Lord is Our Living Branch" based on Isaiah 11:1-10 and John 15:1-15.
The Christmas Love offering will begin this Sunday. It will be received in worship during the collection of our offering. Please use the envelopes provided in the pews. This offering will continue on December 23rd and 24th.
Please turn your attention to the screen during the 2nd gathering song prior to worship. Each week information will be shared about 1 or 2 of the organizations or individuals we support through our tithe and special offerings. In December, you can learn more about Open Hand ministries which will be the recipient of our Christmas Love offering and also the village where our World Vision child, Maggie, lives. Maggie's village will receive the proceeds of December's dessert table at Pisgah Pasta.
