A full Scottish Pipe and Drum band will lead the processional for this thrilling family service that will include blessing of the newborns from the past year.

Church Wide Bible Study

Every year, we say we’re going to cut back and have a Christmas where we focus on Jesus. But every year, it seems easier to indulge in the wants and whims that rob us of our peace and joy…and Jesus of his rightful role at the center of our celebration.

Join us for this 3-week Advent Bible study Sundays at 9:30 am and 11:00 am  OR Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m.

| Study & Renewal Center (aka “The Cottage”)

Books will be available at the Advent Christmas Challenge table outside of the Neumann Center on Sunday, November 27th between all worship services and after Hanging of the Greens.

A free-will offering of $10 will be graciously accepted.

For more information or to RSVP, contact Mona Petersen, Director of Adult Christian Education & Small Groups at MonaP@firstpres.cc or call (954) 598-9345.
