The Reach Out Committee will be hosting our annual Outdoor Live Nativity on Saturday, December 4 from 6 - 8:30 p.m. We will be serving Cookies and Hot Chocolate to everyone who comes by the church to enjoy this special way of remembering the One who is at the center of this special season. We hope everyone will stop by before, during or after Lebanon's Christmas Carriage Parade. We are coordinating a group of strong people to put together the stable on Sunday afternoon, November 28 after third service (12:30 p.m.). We also need volunteers to be characters from the Biblical manger scene.   If you are interested in participating as a Biblical character, or raising the stable call Debbie Snider at 513-932-2789 or email admin@lebanonpresbyterian.org.  If you would like to donate 2 or 4 dozen cookies for Saturday, December 4, PLEASE sign up after either service in the Welcome Center or click on the button below.

All Aboard! Come on the Christmas Express with us! The children have been busy preparing a new Christmas musical about a group of children traveling to Bethlehem….

There will be refreshments and a time to meet and greet the cast!
Giving Tree Supports
Women with Crisis Pregnancies
 
Once again this year our church is supporting Elizabeth New Life Center by purchasing baby items for women with crisis pregnancies. You can participate in the Giving Tree by taking a tag from the Christmas trees at the base of the balcony stairs or outside the Ark. That tag will tell you what baby item you need to buy. After purchasing the item, please return it to the church unwrapped by Sunday, December 12. 
 
If you are unable to come to the church, Melody Bain or Maggie O’Bryon will bring you a tag and arrange for a pickup the week of December 5. Make online donations at elizabethnewlife.org, or shop online at their baby registry on Walmart.com or Amazon.com by entering the name ENLC, last name Boutique and city of Dayton or Ohio depending on the  website. Elizabeth New Life Center operates eight centers in Southwest Ohio.
Project Angel Tree

This ministry seeks to bring the love of Jesus to prisoners and their children. Gifts purchased by our congregation are delivered to the children in their parents’ name. In this way we reach out to the families of prisoners with gifts of love and a message of hope. Watch for the Angel Tree Christmas display coming soon. If you would like more  information about Angel Tree or would like to volunteer for this ministry, please contact Patty Corfman at  admin@lebanonpresbyterian.org.
Bring an unwrapped toy to church on Sunday mornings from now until December 5. Place gifts in the Red Barrel located at the entrance to the Sanctuary or Ark. Gifts may be brought to the church office during the week, Monday - Thursday 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. or Friday 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. No toy guns or weapon-type toys please! We try to keep our gifts of equal value ($15-20) each for infants to 14 year olds. Crayons, children's reading books, hats and mittens will also be collected. Monetary donations are accepted and used to purchase toys. Please write checks payable to Lebanon's Christmas for Tots!
