Congregational Life is trying something new this year for the annual Hanging of the Greens. On November 25, following worship, we will have a pot luck meal and Christmas cookie exchange, followed by preparing the church for the Advent season by hanging the greens and decorating the Christmas trees. A sign up list is available in the back of the sanctuary today for hot dishes, vegetable sides, salads, bread, and participation in the cookie exchange. Please plan to be part of creating a new tradition.
