This Sunday we celebrate Advent 1 and the Hanging of the Greens. The scripture readings for this Sunday are Isaiah 64:109 and Mark 13:24-37. The Matthew reading ends with the verse, "And what I say to you I say to all: Keep awake." (Mark 13:37)
After the Coffee Hour, the youth of our church will make candy in the Parish House kitchen to be sold at the Christmas Fair.
Look into the hearts of the people of the United Church of Christ.
You will see that across our church, the people in our pews hold diverse beliefs and come to their faith from many perspectives. That's something we're proud of in the United Church of Christ.
Being a part of the United Church of Christ means unity despite differences and extravagant love. Dreams of inclusivity have become a reality in many churches were people aren't judged based on how they look, what they believe, or who they love.
