Rev. Dr. Jim Sack will be preaching on the Christmas story from Luke 2:1-20. There will be special music from our guest, Rev. Darren IngKang Mok, and a time to request Christmas carols.

Christmas Cookie Exchange: Please bring packaged cookies to share — due to COVID rules we cannot have unwrapped food out in the open, but as long as they are in bags for people to take home, it will be fine. 

For those joining us virtually, please use the chat function in Zoom to send Christmas carol or prayer requests.

For online giving, please go to https://wtuc.net/offering/
Or you can bring your offering for collection during service.

We hope to see you at the Lutheran campus this Sunday morning, December 25, at 10:00!
