THE CHRISTMAS SEASON HAS ARRIVED! Thank you so much to the Hearts-to-Hearts Ministry and Mike Pyles for filling our sanctuary and fellowship hall with festive cheer!

THE SEASON OF ADVENT IS ALWAYS A JOYOUS TIME, as we look forward to the birth of Jesus and all that entails. We will be offering an Advent Vespers in our sanctuary for the next two Friday evenings, December 10 and 17, at 7:00 pm. The short program will be followed by light refreshments in the fellowship hall. If you would like to participate in the service or contribute refreshments, we invite you to sign up in our foyer.

OUR BREAKFAST BAR is now open on the first, third, and fourth Sabbath of each month from 9:00-9:30 am in the Fellowship Hall (there will be no breakfast next Sabbath). If you would like to be the leader (or assistant) of a breakfast team that offers a Sabbath breakfast once a month, please contact Pastor Gary.

MIDWEEK FELLOWSHIP is on a holiday recess and will resume its studies on Tuesday, January 4, at 6:00 pm in the Board Room.

JACKIE KILLEEN, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and sister of Louis Bishop, passed away on November 11. Jackie was one of our dearest long-term members who blessed us all in so many ways. She will be dearly missed.

VOLUNTEER SIGNUPS are taking place in our foyer. If you don’t know your future schedule, please don’t let that prevent you from signing up. If the date approaches and you are unable to volunteer, we will gladly find a replacement.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO CONTRIBUTE TITHES AND OFFERINGS, you may do so either in person or online by dropping your offering into the offering box in the foyer or visiting our church website and clicking “online giving” at the top of the page.

WE ARE WANTING TO HOLD A MUSIC SERIES next year that will bring Christian groups and musicians to perform in concert in our sanctuary. To achieve this, we will need to raise a substantial amount. If you would like to donate to this endeavor, please mark your tithe envelope “music series.”

THE SON OF ONE OF OUR CHURCH MEMBERS is available for tutoring or childcare services weekday afternoons or any time on the weekends. This young gentleman is a high school sophomore and able to tutor in any subject needed. If you are interested, please contact Danielle Verbrugghen at (619) 302-7227.
