Friday Fives

1. Preaching Series - This Sunday, December 22nd, we will continue our series entitled, Christmas Gifts That Won't Break. So often we hang our importance and our feelings of happiness on material things, fleeting things. This series is geared to help us re-focus our lives so that the eternal things of God are where we find solace and affirmation. This week we will look to the love given to us in Jesus Christ and how this love is for all people. Invite a friend and I hope to see you all there.

2. Christmas Caroling - Do you love to sing Christmas Carols? Do you love to bring joy into the lives of others? Then I have a great invitation for you! Tomorrow, Saturday, December 21st we are going Christmas Caroling. Just meet in the Fellowship Hall at 3:30pm and we will depart to sing to the residents of Hampton Manor and Chambrel Assisted Living Facility. Once we are done there, we will return to the church for some great chili and wonderful fellowship. After dinner, we will split up into groups and go to carol at the homes of a few of our home bound friends. I do hope you will take advantage of this opportunity and join us in spreading a little Christmas cheer!

3. Christmas Eve Service - Tuesday, December 24th, we will gather at 6 P.M. in our Sanctuary for our Candlelight Christmas Eve Service. This will be a time for fellowship, for prayer, for singing, and to hear the Word of God proclaimed. We will conclude our preaching series, Christmas Gifts That Won't Break, as we look to the peace that comes in the birth of Christ and what that means for our lives each and every day. We will conclude our worship time by processing out of the Sanctuary, by candlelight, singing Silent Night. This service a a wonderfully moving time for all of us to come together and be moved by the Holy Spirit. I look forward to seeing you and all you invite to come with you on this special night.

4. Variety Show and Dessert Bar - Mark your calendars for Saturday, January 18th, at 7pm as S.O.S. (Sisters of Soul) will host a Variety Show and Dessert Bar in the Fellowship Hall. I hope you will make plans to share your gifts in the show and be a part of the wonderful time that will surely follow.

5. Office Hours - Just a little reminder that the church office will be closed December 24th and 25th, as well as December 31st and January 1st for the holidays. I pray your holiday celebrations are wonderful and filled with memories.

Merry Christmas!
