 A Message from Council President, Margo Mosley Smyre...

Extending the peace is another way of acknowledging the blessings God has given us. We in turn seek to share those blessings with each other in worship, in fellowship and in service. Sort of a ripple effect!

Our beloved Pastor Mike opens every monthly Pisgazette with a personal message, “A Stone’s Throw.”  The image of a stone cast upon water is telling.  There’s a ripple effect created when we acknowledge God’s many blessings.  That ripple effect is an ongoing experience here through the community Food Pantry, Senior Center, scout groups, AA, youth work camps, retreats, weekly Bible study, Sunday worship and more. 

Come and see!  We look forward to sharing God’s peace with you and we invite you to join us in creating an even greater ripple effect.

Peace be with you!

Margo Mosley Smyre


 A Stone's Throw

Written by Pastor Mike Stone for January 2018

Can you believe that we will soon celebrate Christmas Eve, December 24th, Candlelight worship service together 5:00 and 7:00 pm? I can't imagine Christmas without these special times together. Also, please note, that Sunday, December 24th, we will have both 8:00 and 10:30 worship. Sunday, December 31st, New Year's Eve Day, we will just have 10:00 worship.

Don't forget our Children’s Christmas program this Sunday, December 17th, breakfast for all between services. Watching these little ones reenact the Christmas story is a great way to get in the spirit.

With a new year, we have new resolutions and new possibilities to grow in faith together! Don't forget our new walking path—many are using it now. On Wednesday, January 3rd, we will have a pizza dinner 5:15–6:00 pm, and then watch the movie “The Case for Christ” together 6:00-8:00 pm. Our confirmands and parents will share this together, but it is open to all the congregation—join us for dinner and movie.

In January, starting the week of the 7th, Women's bible study begins on Monday, the 8th, at 10:00 am and Wednesday, January 10th, at 6:15 pm. Men's bible study is back at it Tuesday, January 9th, at 5:30 pm. Also, our Wednesday Morning study starts on January 10th, at 8:30 am, led by me. 2018 is a brand new year filled with new possibilities. Let's take advantage of every opportunity we have together.


In the Gracious grip of the Christ child,

Pastor Mike
