December 20- The Fourth Week of Advent

This Sunday: Dorine and Steve light our fourth candle of our Advent wreath – our Joy candle. Jim’s message this week is “Are You Ready to Shout for Joy?” based on Isaiah 35:1-10.

Join us in worship at 9AM on Sunday on our YouTube channel or watch at whatever time is convenient for you.

CHRISTMAS EVE WORSHIP: Our special online Christmas Eve service will be on our YouTube channel by 5:00 pm on Thursday, December 24th. This unique service will include some familiar faces, voices, special music, and conclude with our traditional singing of Silent Night. We hope you join us to celebrate the birth of Christ through this familiar yet unique worship experience.

CHRISTMAS GIVING THANK YOU…  Even though we didn’t have our giving tree to take a child’s name and gift preference this year, we were still able to help a number of children and their families for Christmas this year. Through your generosity, 15 families received help with Christmas gifts for their children and over 40 bags of food for Christmas dinners were given out. What a wonderful gift that was for so many families. THANK YOU for your incredible generosity and help with making all of this possible.

SECRET SISTER GIFTS: There are several gifts at the church for some of our “Secret Sisters in Christ.” As of right now, Pam, Michelle, Cal, Valdene, Kelly, and Sherry, have gifts waiting for them at the church. Gifts can be picked up on Sunday during the Open House, or you can always call or stop by the church another day if you need to. Contact Jim, Holly, or Ali if you have questions.

INVITE REMINDER…. You’re invited to our Drive-Thru Open House Sunday. We hope to see you there!

BLESSING BOX UPDATE: As the weather is growing colder, our blessing box needs some different items. During these cold winter months, as the food items in the box will be susceptible to freezing, it has been suggested that the Blessing Box be filled with non-perishable items that do NOT have liquid in them. Dry good items such as cereal, boxed pasta, instant rice, instant mashed potatoes, oatmeal, granola bars, cereal bars, and other items without liquid in them were suggested. You can add your items in the Blessing Box at any time! Thank you for all you have given to help keep our Blessing Box stocked!
