The Community Life Team is planning a Thanksgiving Pot Luck from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. Roast Turkey will be provided. Please sign up to let us know which menu item you will bring. This will also help us to know how many to plan for. The sign-up sheet is on the counter in the Parish House.

    Bakers please plan to make a variety of cookies for this popular community event.

In addition to offering lunch for purchase, our newly renovated historic church will be open for those participating in the tour. W
e will need some volunteers to assist as guides for any church visitors or tours. Volunteers are asked to wear their church t-shirts or better yet dress in historical garb.


Wednesday, December 6 at 6:30-8:00 pm
We will join Lake Helen Pride on the Butler Express.

Join Lake Helen Pride for a ride on Butler Express Christmas Train for a ride around Lake Helen experiencing the magic of Christmas Lights and cheerful company for the holiday season! This is a RARE opportunity to ride Butler Express without waiting in line!

And an opportunity to support a great local cause because a portion of the proceeds will go to benefit Outside the Gates Food Pantry.

Tickets are $15 and non-refundable but they are transferrable.
There is limited seating so tickets are available for advanced purchase through the link below at Eventbirght. Tickets will be available for sale at the time of event but there is not guarantee for availability.
