You are invited to join the worship team on Mon., Nov. 7 at Deb Moon’s Le Fleur Shoppe. Members of all ages and backgrounds are invited to participate in the one-time commitment. The ideas generated at the brainstorming are used in worship. The pizza potluck begins at 6:00 p.m. Please bring a dish to share. Brainstorming is from 7:00-9:30 p.m.
Ebenezer Scrooge is a man in dire need of a second chance. Is redemption possible for such a greedy, dark and sad character? Rawle shows us how the teachings of Jesus can be found in Dickens’ Christmas classic. From the ghosts of Christmas past, to the Life of the present, and the resurrection of Christmas future, this will “bless us every one” and reinvigorate our spiritual journeys as we look at this familiar story through the lens of faith.
