Join us for Sunday morning worship, which will include our impromptu Children's Christmas Pageant.
Nursery is available through age 3, but children of any age are invited to wear or borrow a costume for our annual impromptu Christmas Pageant. We will need shepherds, angels, wise men, kings, donkeys, cows, camels, doves, sheep, and stars. The Mary and Joseph parts will be filled ahead of time. We have a good selection of costumes and props, but feel free to wear something from home!
No 8:30am Service
The holidays can be a difficult time when you are experiencing loss or grief. Sometimes this is a death, sometimes the loss of a job, the experience of aging, a broken relationship, or a family member's sickness. Fellowship's Blue Christmas service is for anyone experiencing sadness during the holidays. Join us for a quiet service of music and prayer as we journey through darkness and look to Christ for light.
Join us for a Discussion of When the Emperor Was Divine by Julie Otsuka, this year's Holland Area Big Read book.
“When the Emperor Was Divine” follows one Japanese family uprooted from its Berkeley home after the start of World War II. After being delivered to a racetrack in Utah, they are forcibly relocated to an internment camp. They spend two harrowing years there before returning to a home far less welcoming than it was before the war. Using five distinct but intertwined perspectives, Otsuka's graceful prose evokes the family's range of responses to internment. Culminating in a final brief and bitter chapter, Otsuka's novel serves as a requiem for moral and civic decency in times of strife and fragmentation.

A parish is a neighborhood of households within the larger congregation of FRC, shepherded by an Elder and a Deacon, with the purpose of caring for and connecting with one another.
August 27 will be a time of celebration (after both services) to meet your Elder and Deacon, as well as other members of your parish.
