Saturdays during Advent we're offering a Saturday evening worship alternative. On Saturdays, December 1, 8, 15, and 22, at 5:05 p.m. in Zick Hall. You can expect a different worship experience, with interactive engagement instead of sermons, PowerPoint instead of Bulletins, and communion in the context of a meal (Pizza) the way they did it in the earliest church. Look for details in the Messenger and in an insert in this Sunday's Bulletin. Contact Pastor Dave for more information or if you'd like to get involved in any way!
