Friday Fives

1. Preaching Series – This week we will begin our Advent preaching series, Mary's Christmas. This series will take us on a journey through the story of Advent, through the events of Christ's birth, all through the eyes of Mary.  Come and join us as we look to this wonderful story, through the eyes of a young girl, through the lens of a faithful servant, through the experience of one of God's chosen.  Each week we will look to a different character through the eyes of Mary, beginning this week with Mary herself.  Bring a friend and come and join us for worship.

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 each Thursday through December 22nd, at two different times: 10:00am and 7:00pm, in the Fellowship Hall.  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. In order to guarantee delivery by the 25th, your order must be in by noon, on 12/12.  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, this 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.  You are invited to come and 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!
