WELCOME GUESTS! If you are a guest today, know that we are happy to meet you, and hope you will be blessed by the worship service and our fellowship time afterwards. It is our goal to show you the love and the hospitality of Christ. Welcome! --Please note that childcare volunteers are provided in our wonderful nursery for all of those who are under 4 years old!
OUR FLOWERS today are dedicated to our Family Promise leaders and volunteers.
ATTENTION VOLUNTEERS! Laura is working on the 2020 volunteer schedule, posted near the flower chart. Current verified volunteers will rotate forward two weeks so nobody is assigned the same weeks every year. We NEED more regular and substitute nursery volunteers, and have openings for one or two more counters, liturgists, greeters, communion servers, and ushers. We will also be scheduling communion servers. Please take a few moments to check out the list and let us know ASAP if you need changes to your tasks or are willing to be added to the list for next year. This church runs like clockwork....but only because of each and every one who steps up to keep it going. Thanks for your willingness to help!
The Winter Warmth Tree Please help decorate it with NEW items such as gloves, mittens, scarves, hats and other warm items for North Kent Connect this Christmas. Delivery Dec 16th in time for their Christmas Store. After Christmas we will decorate it with gently used items, for Delivery January 6th.
Our Christmas Eve Service will be held on Tuesday, December 24th at 7:30 pm.
Come and join us as we tell the Christ Story, sing our favorite carols and end with the singing of Silent Night by Candlelight!
