          Welcome to our website.  I hope that you will find it helpful and that it will answer your questions about our church.  This is the page where I share thoughts, articles I read, and/or other information.  If I can be of help to you, please call and leave a message on our church phone, 814-355-0890.

               Our Advent Series this year is called, “Prepare the Way,” and it is based upon four weeks of spiritual preparation crafted by Jeremy Summers that lead us to Christmas.  It is based upon readings from the gospel of Luke.  Summers wrote, “God is preparing The Way.  He is an active God who loves and wants to be loved.  He is a God who is here and among us.  Since we are made in God’s image, God shows us his favor.  The first Christians – often called followers of ‘The Way’ – glorified God by living their lives like Christ.  How will we glorify God today?”    

          Week 1 – Preparing the Way:  He is Near

          Week 2 – Preparing the Way:  He is Among Us

          Week 3 – Preparing the Way:  He Shows Us His Favor

          Week 4 – Preparing the Way:  He is Glorified

      The Christmas Eve Service will be one of scripture lessons and carols, together with a message, “For the Shepherds.”

      You will note on the calendar that on December 14th I will prepare my annual dinner as a thank you to the congregation for your generous support throughout the year.

      The first Sunday after Christmas will be “Story Sunday” which has been a tradition in past years.

      I hope you will be present for these community worship ad fellowship times.  Especially at Christmas time, “the more the merrier.”

                                                                                          Shalom,
                                                                                                Pastor Barbara
