Merciful God, who sent your messengers the prophets to

EVENTS

Christmas Program & Annual Carol Sing
We will have our Christmas Program, December 18th, during the church service. All classes and any and all church members wishing to do a presentation should let James Fisher or Linda Guy know by December 11. The program will be followed by a soup and chili lunch. The congregation is asked to bring desserts or relish. We will be caroling following the lunch.

Night Crew Women's Meeting - December
The Night Crew Christmas party will be held December 15th at 6 PM at Barbara Barton's home. Everyone is to bring a side dish and Barbara will furnish the meat. Please also bring a $10 gift for the gift exchange. This is always a great fellowship so plan to attend!
OPPORTUNITIES TO GIVE

Christmas Adopt-A-Family
This Christmas, we are helping the AFL-CIO by sponsoring families who need help during the holidays. Please select a person to buy a gift for by picking up a slip of paper. The slip of paper will tell you who you are buying a gift for, and what gift to buy. Then, bring the gift back to church, wrapped and with the slip of paper.
