Calming the Chaos

In what can often feel like turbulent times, the Advent and Christmas seasons bring with them a message of PEACE.

At times when we feel a sense of despair, the Christmas story brings us HOPE.

The birth of Jesus so long ago, allowed God to show his LOVE for us all.

Now it is time for us to celebrate the JOY of the season.

The COMPASSion Counseling  Center recently celebrated its 1st Anniversary. To date, the center has provided more than 500 hours of counseling to people in the community. As a result of the generosity of 1st UMC, COMPASSion Counseling Center has been able to provide needed counseling services, resilience building programs in classrooms, and clergy and congregational support. 

This year, the Christmas Offering will help the center continue helping people in its second year and beyond.  Offerings taken during the 7:00 pm Chancel Choir Christmas Cantata on December 11th and all three services on Christmas Eve,  December 24th will go to help the mission of  COMPASSion Counseling.
