Glorify God and Share His Love
as We Serve All People
from His Church on the Hill


  Really touched by our Christmas Caroling Service Project. 30 of us visited 7 homes to spread the good news of Emmanuel, God with us. In this pic, the person to whom we are singing is lit up like an angel! Thank you for sharing your time and talents, everyone! You all were such an inspiration.

Friday night thru Saturday morning, the kids stayed at the church to bake cookies. And look at the results!! Of course, we got a lot of fun mixed in there, too. It's a wonderful life, isn't it kids? (Thanks to Travis, Deza, Maggie, Alaina, and Maddie, too, who didn't make it into the pic.) A big thank you to our Zion Family for being so generous when purchasing, too! Just incredible!!

Seventy kids shared the good news of Jesus birth with us during their Christmas program.  You did a BEAUTIFUL job, kids!!

The Catechism Class was invited to a Christmas Potluck with our MLS group. The food was excellent, the atmosphere warm and inviting and the conversation loving! Thank you for sharing your faith across the generations, everyone! Couldn't have had a more warm and wonderful evening. (Notice the "fireplace" they brought in for the evening, too!) Thank you!!

It was a glorious day with Bishop Allende and St. John St. Paul Choir.  Praise be to God for His goodness!  So thankful for our combined mission and connection to our wider church.











Our Advent Festival on the First Sunday of Advent was a delightful time for all!  Thanks to all those who helped run craft tables, work in the kitchen, decorate the building, and help us get our hearts and our homes ready for the coming of Christ!


Making Gingerbread Churches was just one of the 11 projects we all worked on :)
