Friday Fives

1. Preaching Series – This week will celebrate Advent through song as our choir presents the Advent Cantata, Beautiful Star. I encourage to come and be moved by the songs and transformed by the music. Bring a friend and come and join us for this very special event.

2. Bible Study - We are in the midst of our Bible Study series entitled, The Journey: Walking the Road to Bethlehem. I invite you to come join us, on this DVD study, as we journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem. Each week we join Adam Hamilton on his travels through these locations to rediscover the birth of Christ. We are looking at historical information, archaeological data, as well as some of the personal 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 meets each Thursday through December 22nd, at two different times: 10:00am and 7:00pm, in the Fellowship Hall.  However, on the 15th, we will meet in the sanctuary due to the new floor being installed in 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. Christmas Services - This year, Christmas Eve falls on a Saturday. Therefore, after much discussion, internally and with other churches, the Worship Committee has decided to combine our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services into one service to be held, Saturday, December 24 at 6 pm. We look forward to seeing all of you at the Saturday evening service and pray you will be moved by its music and its message.

5. January Newsletter - If you have an article that you would like to include in the January edition, those articles are due Sunday, 12/11.

Have a great weekend and I will see you soon!
