Announcements for 12/13
A box has been placed in the Narthex for placement of your donations of food and monetary donations to Sharing God’s Love. This month the needs are peanut butter, jelly, canned fruit and juice, macaroni, soup, crackers, pancake mix, syrup, sugar, flour, cereal, oatmeal, toothpaste, shampoo, and hand sanitizer, new or gently used children’s clothes, coats, masks, sleeping bags. In addition, small Christmas gifts for children of all ages, gift cards, toys, socks, PJ’s and personal care gift sets.
Our Congregational Council will meet after church service today for its regular December meeting. New Council members are invited to attend. Installation of new members will be held next Sunday.
We continue to worship in the sanctuary and ask that you please observe the social distancing guidelines and wear your mask. Should you not have one, it will be provided for you. We continue to reach our members who may feel safer at home and to all others outside our community via Facebook live.
If you know of anyone who would like Holy Communion in their homes, please contact Pastor John.
Should you notice anyone on our prayer list that should be taken off (although we all need prayer) please let Pastor John know. Thank you!
Pastor John will have individual Holy Communion on Christmas Eve from 3:00 to 5:30. This service is designed for individuals who can’t be at the Christmas Eve service or feel uncomfortable in a group setting.
Our Christmas Eve service will be held at 6:00 on the 24th. We will need children to sing Christmas carols. Please coordinate time for a practice with Jan Samson.
