This Week's Announcements - Tuesday, December 12

Nursing Home Outreach
Stewardship is collecting items to make gift bags for the nursing home residents for Christmas. A list of items is available in the entryway. Please bring your items to the church by this Wednesday, Dec. 13th.

Bethlehem Boulevard

We will offer a Christmas experience this year for our CLW & BBJ families on Wednesday, Dec. 20th @ 6 PM. It will be much different than the traditional Christmas program. We need many volunteers to make this happen as we create interactive scenes and locations from Bethlehem leading up to Jesus’ birth. This will feature Angels to welcome the visitors, Wise Men wandering, looking for Jesus, Roman Soldiers as well as areas with census takers, a potter, Shepherds & Angels, a marketplace, the Nativity, and others.

We will have a meeting this Wednesday at 7 PM for the volunteers.

Christmas Eve Service
Christmas Eve is on a Sunday this year. We will still have our regular Sunday morning service that day, as well as our Christmas Eve service at 6 PM that evening. There will be NO Sunday School on Christmas Eve.

Christmas Eve Special Music
We would like to have some special music during our Christmas Eve service this year. If you would like to share your musical talent, please let Chris know.

Thank You
A huge thank you to everyone who was here on Wednesday night to help decorate. Many hands always make the work go quickly. The decorations look fantastic!
