Building Project Informational Session
This Sunday is the last Sunday we will be hosting an informational session during the Sunday School hour in the Sanctuary. The purpose is to get your feedback on the initial building concept and make sure we are all informed about the project. Please join us.
Poinsettia Orders
We invite you to participate in decorating the Sanctuary for Advent and Christmas by purchasing a poinsettia(s) in honor or memory of someone. The cost is $10.00. The ushers will have the envelopes or you can pick one up on the table in the back of the sanctuary. Place completed envelopes in the offering plate or give to Vicki Lanham. Plants may be picked up after the Christmas eve service. Orders are due this Sunday, Dec 13.

Memory Tree
The beautiful tree at the back of the sanctuary is our Memory Tree. You are encouraged to place an ornament on the tree in memory of someone special. There is also a Memory Book to record the information.

Light in the Darkness
The season leading up to Christmas is a time of great joy, but it can also be a time that we wish would quickly come and go. Recognizing our loss and disappointment at this time of year is vital because we are a people of hope. We will have a time of worship with Communion on Sunday evening December 20th at 6:00PM to do just that. Come and hear the good news that God walks with us through every peak and through each valley.

Altar Flower Poster
The 2016 poster to reserve a Sunday to purchase the flowers for the altar in memory of or in honor of a special person will be available this Sunday.

Hearing Devices are now available for use during our services. They are located in the back of the sanctuary.
