Join us this Sunday as we begin our Advent journey together!

Dear Friends,

Join us this Sunday as we begin our Advent journey together!  I will embark on a new message series entitled “The Cast of Christmas.”  This Sunday we’ll focus on the Angels and Shepherds that we read about in Luke 2:8-20.  I hope you’ll be here as we light the first candle of the Advent Wreath and begin our spiritual preparation for Christmas.

Thank you to all who shared words of thanksgiving during last Sunday’s service.  It was very meaningful and moving to have so many people sit in the “Chair of Thanksgiving” and share words of gratitude from their hearts.

Don’t forget to sign up for the Family Christmas Program and Dinner on December 16th at 4:00 P.M.  Our children will be presenting “Guess Who’s Coming to Bethlehem” under the direction of Gene Stremme.  Make your dinner reservation in the narthex.  You won’t want to miss it!

It’s also time to order your fisher Pot Pies!  Pick up an order form at the Welcome Center and return to Kristen Puluszka.  Delivery will be at the Christmas Dinner on the 16th.  35-45% of the cost for each pie sold goes toward the Shine Youth Group 2013 summer mission trip.

Plan now to attend our Church business meeting next Sunday following the worship service.  We will be voting on the 2013 proposed budget.  If you have not yet returned your 2013 Stewardship Commitment Card, please due so ASAP!  Extra cards are included in the chair backs and available at the Welcome Center.

See you Sunday,

 Pastor George
