Soup, Appetizers, and Caroling: A Christmas Tradition

 

Soup, Appetizers, and Caroling: A Christmas Fellowship — Join us on Sunday, December 16, at 5:30 pm, in the Christian Life Center,  to celebrate Christmas in some traditional ways, eating together and caroling. We will need about 6-7 crock pots of soup and everyone else is asked to bring a finger food, sweet or savory, to share. Between 6:00-6:15 pm, we will go out caroling to homebound members and to the Williamsburg Health and Rehabilitation Center. If you can make a soup or have a suggestion of someone who would enjoy joyful carolers, please call the church office.
