On Sunday, December 11th, join us for an afternoon of old fashioned caroling! Good News Amen is sponsoring an afternoon of singing beginning at 2:00 pm. Allison and Keven Young will be driving us in two buses from Ability Works to share the good news of Christ's birth to our homebound members. Let's fill the buses and the hearts of some special members of our church.
This year the Faith Life Team has selected the residents of Lutheran Memorial Home and Admiral’s Point nursing facilities as the recipients of our Giving Tree gifts.
The "wish lists" come from residents who do not have much family or many visitors. Typically they spend the holiday alone. So let's reach out to them by choosing an angel tag.
The items will be delivered on December 18th so the residents can feel the love of our Lord and the true meaning of giving on Christmas Day. So ... choose a tag on the Welcome Table. Purchase the gift. Wrap gift, (or don’t wrap). Attach tag to the gift (IMPORTANT). Return gift to church by December 18.
FOR CASH DONATIONS: Cash will be used to provide gifts from the lists not picked. Take a cash donation tag with envelope. Put cash in envelope and place in the basket provided.
Thank-you for your continued generosity.
On Sunday, December 18th at 10:30 am we’re having a Talent Show! Our youth along with the choir will share their talents. Don’t miss this special worship opportunity! Worship will be followed by our traditional sandwich and cookie potluck lunch. Please bring something to share.
Join us on December 24th as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with special evening worship services at 4:00 pm and 8:00 pm. The two services will be essentially the same, featuring both Holy Communion and candlelight. Spread the word; invite family and friends to come for Christmas Eve worship!
Join us early on December 25th, Christmas Day, as we greet the Son with a simple (and informal) service of prayer and praise. This service will begin at 8:30 am.
