Children’s Christmas Program

“The Joy of Christmas” Children’s Christmas Program will be on Sunday, December 15th at the 9:30 service time.


Christmas Cantata

The annual AUMC Chancel Choir Christmas Cantata will be held on Sunday, December 15th at 8:15 and 11:00 am.
“Waiting for Christmas” – a heartwarming story of a letter found in an old family Bible, this musical introduces a young girl named Sarah writing to her “Nana”, expressing her joy and delight as she anticipates the holiday and, once again, getting the family together at Christmastime. The memories of past Christmases combined with the expectation of precious new memories yet to be made create a vivid backdrop for sharing the real reason for the season…Jesus!


Hope & Comfort Service

Sunday, November 17th at 7:00 pm the Stephen Ministry Team will again be having our Hope and Comfort service in the Chapel. This is a service for all! 

There will be an emphasis on having HOPE. We understand that during the holiday season we have people struggling to feel this Hope. We know there are so many ways that these feelings enter our lives.  It can be from losing a love one, losing a job, health issues and many other feelings. 

This year we will have our new Worship/Praise Team director, Keith Bean, leading us from the music side.  Keith is very excited and feels music is a great inspiration in dealing with Hope.  We will have some of our Stephen Ministers sharing their ideas and hints on how to keep hope and feel comfort in your life during these unsettling times. We feel this service will help move you from hurt to healing through Gods love.

We also will be having a candle service at the end.  This part of the service is a tradition of taking time to remember our love ones who have passed or lifting up  & moving on with your particular sorrow.

 Please come and experience this with us!!
