Announcements for December 19

Our Children’s Christmas Pageant with covered dish supper will begin this afternoon at 4:30.

Congratulations to Becky Samson Merryman on receiving her Masters degree in Sustainability Leadership from Arizona State University this week!

We will have our Christmas Eve Candlelight Service on Friday, December 24th at 6:00.

We have all seen pictures and newscasts on the devastation in southern Kentucky. The ELCA has set up a special disaster relief fund. Today, our Noisy Offering will be sent to the Kentucky relief fund. One hundred percent of your donations will be used to assist our sisters and brothers in Kentucky.

There are many unfortunate people who need our help during this Christmas Season. Please help out with your donations to Sharing God’s Love. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Next quarter’s devotional booklets are available in the Narthex or in the Office/Classroom Building. Pick yours up.
