Reminders for This Weekend – December 14 & 15

DRUMMING UP JUSTICE is postponed until January. So we will not be meeting this Sunday. However…

Seawalls St. Croix is a 10-day event happening this week and next. Artists are using their talents to draw our attention to the oceans around us, the plastic piling up there, and ways that we might make a difference. Pastor Peter is moderating a discussion on “Organizing For Change” on Sunday, December 15 at 3:45pm. This is a great substitute for Drumming Up Justice.

GRILL ON THE HILL is also postponed until January. So, we will not be meeting this Saturday. However…

Live Nativity – Save the NEW Date (December 21st)!

In some places “it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas” when the blustery breezes blow and the snow starts to pile up. But, on St. Croix, we look forward to fun and festive events like the Live Nativity at St. Croix Reformed Church. There will be costumes and carols, cookies and donkey rides. The program will begin at 4pm.

Come a little early to choose your costume. Bring a some cookies or other sweets to share. Stay after to enjoy the sunset and, yes, ride on the donkeys!

Take a Seat.

Chairs at the Complex track.

Track season has begun and it came to Pastor Peter’s attention that there weren’t very many (or very comfortable) chairs for athletes and coaches at the meets. As you might be aware, SCRC has an abundance of green lawn chairs. Now there are plenty of chairs to help the meets run more smoothly (and at least a little more comfortably ;).

We’ll be meeting following worship this Sunday to have a conversation about the first six chapters of The Plateau. It’s a book about sacrifice and courage and one woman’s search for peace. How do we make it? Why does it exist so profoundly in some places? Can we make it a habit? We’ll be meeting this Sunday at 11am. Please join us!
