TUNA FOR CHRISTMAS
We need Tuna (about 50) so all December Sundays, please bring a can or more of unopened tuna cans so that we can use these as weights for our Christmas luminaries before they will be delivered to the Blue Ridge Food Pantry. There will be a special basket in the outer office to collect the tuna.
CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICES DECEMBER 24
- Family Christmas Service 5PM
- Traditional Late Night Christmas Service 11PM
Christmas Eve service at 5 pm will be especially designed for the inclusion of children. At 11PM we will have traditional service. Both services will have candle lighting with real and battery operated candles. If you come early before 5PM, you can help set up luminaries and enjoy some cookies. There are many people who use this time of celebrating Jesus birth to come to church and hear the good news. Unfortunately many who don't get invited and don't know where to go.
Don't forget to invite your friends and neighbors. All families will receive a special Christmas ornament.
