Sunday Service
December 8
Please join us at the 11:00am worship service this Sunday, December 15th, for an uplifting program provided by our talented music ministries.

This inspiring program is the perfect time to invite your friends and neighbors to church. You’ll all enjoy the melodious voices, organ, piano, the handbell music along with uplifting lessons for the holidays. 
Church Wide Breakfast
Christmas Potluck Breakfast: Join together with your church family at 10:00am on Sunday, December 22nd for this special tradition of food and fellowship at Christmas time. If you are able, please bring a breakfast/brunch covered dish. We’ll provide the coffee, milk, and juice.

Staff Love Offering
This is the time of year you have the opportunity to honor our church staff with a love offering.

We are blessed to have a staff that is so willing to go above and beyond, to ensure we have what we need, when we need it and often do many things quietly in the background to keep everything running smoothly.

Please make your gift by Christmas Eve. Please be sure that your gift is designated for "Staff Love Offering."  
Ladies Eat Out
Next Thursday, December 19th, LEO will be eating lunch at The Beirut. Meet us there at 11:30 or carpool from the church at 11:00.

2020 Chili Cookoff
Get ready for our first Wednesday Night Supper in 2020 on January 8.

Show off your talents with a pot full of chili. Taste-testers (all are invited) will receive one vote per dollar donated. The chili with the most votes will win a year's worth of bragging rights.

All proceeds will go to replenish the Altar Fund which is used to help those in need in our area.

2020 Leadership Opportunity: Usher Captain Needed!
We elected our 2020 Leadership Team at the Charge Conference. We need to fill one more position that did not require vote. We need an Usher Captain to maintain the monthly usher calendar and contact list. You don’t even have to be an usher. If you can help please contact Ashley Jenkins.
