This Sunday is the fourth Sunday of the Advent season, celebrating the Christ Child!
This Sunday at 6:00 pm there will be a Candlelight Christmas Service. Our sanctuary lights will be off except for the glow of many candles. All songs and Scripture texts will be projected on the screens (similar to our Sunrise Service at Easter). This will be a simple worship service focused on the story of the birth of Christ.
There will be no midweek services this Wednesday, December 23rd to allow families more time to prepare for Christmas.
There are envelopes available on the Welcome Center for the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions. Lottie Moon was a single lady missionary to China over 100 years ago. She wrote letters challenging American churches to send more support and workers to mission fields. After her death, an annual offering for world missions was named in her honor. This is a free will offering, and every bit of the money raised goes directly to the support of international missionaries.
Gifts intended specifically for our lighting project may be designated “Sanctuary Lights”.
Because of concerns about the COVID-19 virus, our Annual Church Business meeting has been postponed until Sunday, January 10, 2021. Our current budget will remain in effect until next year’s budget can be voted on. Current officers, please continue your duties until the election of next year’s officers.
