Nativity Scene

We Want to See Your Nativity Set!

The F.U.N. committee is hosting a Nativity Set Display on the 3rd Sunday of Advent, December 12th (note date change), and we would like to see your Nativity Set.  Help us to build the anticipation of the birth of our Lord by sharing the Nativity Set that you display in your home!  It doesn't matter if your set is an old family heirloom or a new tradition: it doesn't matter if it is big or small: we just want to see them all! The displays will be set up in the parlor for everyone to enjoy after church and followed with Christmas cookies and hot chocolate in the welcome center.   If you would like to participate, please sign up on the poster in the narthex so that we can make sure to have table space and a display tag ready for you.  You may set up your Nativity on Saturday afternoon, December 11th  between 1 – 2 PM or on Sunday morning,

     December 12th   from 8 - 8:30 AM.  

     If you would have any questions, please do not hesitate to call Nancy or Dave Fioriglio or speak to any member of the F.U.N. committee.  We are hoping to have a display that fills the entire parlor!

Quilt Tying will be held on Tuesday, December 14 beginning at 9:30 a.m.

in the social hall, so we can social distance.  We are following the current CDC guidelines.

Help is always needed!!
