Bake Sale and Advent Grotto

The Christian Community is having our Annual Bake Sale and Children's Cookie Grotto immediately following the service.

Back by popular demand, the Cookie Grotto is an Advent offering for the children. They will be invited into a little candlelit cave filled with crystals, animals and small cookies. Each child will be invited to choose a cookie from this magical space...

Join us, young and old!!!
