Once again we will have the JOY of gathering together on each Wednesday of the Advent to share a light meal and enjoy beautiful music of the holiday season. The Madrigal Choir from Ames High School will again be our performers on November 20. The luncheon will begin at 11:45 a.m.-12:30 p.m. with the musical performances occurring at 12:30 p.m. Brad Cloyd, a young man who grew up in this congregation and who owns and operates Cloyd Catering, will be preparing the meals for each Wednesday luncheon, with the members of the Worship Committee providing desserts.

The menu for November 30 will feature two soups: a potato and leek soup or a split green pea with sausage soup, two salads ; a cranberry almond pasta salad or a fresh garden salad, plus fresh bread and beverages. A freewill donation will be collected that day to both support a local mission and defray expenses.
