Preparing for Worship
Our sermon series continues on the “Lights of Advent” with the lighting of the fourth candle representing “Peace”. The scripture is from Isaiah 9:6-8 and Matthew 10:34-36.
Please read and prepare your hearts for worship.
 
Christmas eveChristmas Eve Services
 Please join us as we center our focus on the birth that changed the world… the birth of Jesus. We will have 2 services, 5PM and 8PM. The 5PM will be more family focused and 8PM more contemplative. They both will be candlelight and communion will be served.

Poinsettias
Thank you so very much for all the poinsettia orders. Our sanctuary is stunning with the addition of these beautiful Christmas flowers. A bulletin with the donors’ names and dedications is available. Plants may be picked up after the Christmas eve service.

 

Attention all Youth:
 Our youth leader, Wilson Newell sends out weekly emails with up to date information of upcoming schedules and events involving the youth. If you don’t receive these emails, please let Wilson know. Or let me, Vicki Lanham know and I will make sure he gets your information.

 

Altar flowers – January anyone?
The signup posters for next year are available in the rear of the sanctuary. We now have one for the month of January. Please sign up if you are interested. Thanks!

 

Andover Update: Did you receive it?
 Andover Update – January 2018 was sent from Jim by email on Dec 20. This letter is sent thru a different database than this weekly one and as much as we try, sometimes folks get left out. Please let me know if you didn’t receive the 2nd monthly newsletter so your name can be added.

 

The staff would like to thank you for your gift to us this Christmas. It is difficult to fully express our gratitude because we know it was given with such love. Please know how much your generosity and kindness is appreciated. We are praying the One who came for us the very first Christmas will come in a new way to your hearts and homes… Because of Him….

 

Upcoming Dates:

Sunday Dec 24 – Christmas Eve services – 5PM & 8PM
