Building Project Informational Sessions
Over the course of these Sundays (11.29, 12.6 and 12.13) we will be hosting informational sessions during the Sunday School hour in the Sanctuary.  The purpose of these sessions is to get your feedback on the initial building concept and make sure we are all informed about the project. Please make plans to join us on one of the mornings to find out more and give your input.
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 by Sunday Dec 13.

Stewardship Pledges
God loves it when the giver delights in the giving. 2 Cor 9.7
If you didn’t get one last Sunday, there are additional pledge cards for the 2016 General Fund available on the information table. The pledges help us make our budget plans for the next year. The cards may be returned in the offering plate, mailed to 200 W High St., 40507 or online at 1stumc.org. Please respond by Dec 1.
 
Rachel Circle Christmas Dinner 
The United Methodist Womens’ Rachel Circle will have their Christmas dinner on Thursday, December 3rd at the home of Ray and Betty Hornback, 3629 Cayman Ln, 40509. Spouses are invited. It is a delightful potluck dinner. The drinks, meat and bread will be provided, so bring a favorite side dish to share. Please RSVP to Betty Hornback at 299-5616.
