Friday Fives

1. Preaching Series – This week we will celebrate Hanging of the Greens during worship. Come and join us as we transform the sanctuary from dark and undecorated to bright and beaming with the hope of Advent. We will completely decorate the sanctuary during our time together and you will hear the meaning behind each of our decorations. This is truly a wonderful service and I hope you will be able to attend. In fact, bring a friend and I will see you there.

2. Bible Study - We have began our new Bible Study series entitled, The Journey: Walking the Road to Bethlehem. I invite you to join us, on this DVD study, as we journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem. We will join Adam Hamilton on his travels through these locations to rediscover the birth of Christ. We will look at historical information, archaeological data, and take a personal look at some of the stories surrounding the birth. I am sure the most amazing moment in history will become more real and heart-felt as you join us and we walk along this road together.

The class will meet again this Thursday, December 1st and meet each week through December 22nd.  The class is offered at two different times: 10:00am and 7:00pm, in the Fellowship Hall and the cost is free. If you would like the book, which is not required, it is $12.  It is never too late to join and I know you will be changed by this series and I would love to see you there!

3. Christmas Gift Cards - If you normally buy gift cards for the holidays I want to invite you to consider buying them through the church this year. This is an excellent way for you to buy those cards for your loved ones and allows the church to raise extra funds, all at the same time. For a full listing of all participating vendors you can contact Carole in the church office.

4. Open House - On behalf of my family I would like to invite each of you to come by the parsonage, next Sunday, 12/4, from 12pm-1:30pm for our open house.  Come to worship at 10:30am, stay for lunch afterwards, and then come on by and see what the parsonage looks like all decorated, enjoy some light refreshments, and spend some time in fellowship with one another.

5. December Newsletter - The December Newsletter is available in the narthex so be sure to pick your copy up.  You can also go over to our church website, and view it there as well.

Have a great weekend and I will see you soon!
