This Sunday marks the beginning of Advent – the time of anticipation of the coming of Christ! We will celebrate with Youth Sunday Worship – one service at 10:30 am (but the Sunday school will rehearse at 9 am.)
After Worship, we will go outside to bless our nativity scene and then move to Fellowship Hall for our Advent Lunch. Food is provided, but please bring a beverage or dessert to share. We will also have an opportunity to make advent wreaths for the home. Suggested donation is $7 for the supplies. Please bring your wreath form from last year if you have it.
You should have received your 2013 pledge card in the main. We encourage you to consider how God is calling you to support God’s work in the church and the world through your gifts of money, talent and time. We would also ask that you consider increasing your pledge over last year’s amount so the work of your church can continue. Please bring your pledge cards to church or return them to the office by December 23rd.
The first Rehearsal for the Christmas Choir will be next week, Sunday the 9th, at 9:45 am. Other rehearsals will be after church on the 16th and 23rd, and at 9:30 pm on Christmas Eve. All are welcome!
See you in church. Christ is coming!
