WE WELCOME Reverend David Evans he will be our celebrant and preacher today. We pray for God’s blessing upon his proclamation of the Word and administering of the Sacrament.
Next Sunday, December 22, Mother Terri Bays will be our celebrant.
TOWN HALL MEETING: Please mark your calendars for Saturday December 21st for our town hall meeting to talk about the collaboration with Grace Episcopal Church. The meeting begins at 4:00 p.m. and Mother Terri Bays will be here to help us facilitate the conversation. Our hope will be to discuss the many different aspects of how the collaboration will work. Remember that we will only be sharing the cost and time of our priest. If you are unable to come to this meeting and would like some questions brought up and answered then write them down and give it to Jordan or myself. We will make every effort to get these answered and back to you after the meeting. My hope is to have our entire congregation involved with this process.
YOUTH GROUP will meet every Sunday at 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. for practice of the Christmas Play.
YOUTH GROUP PLAY AND DINNER: Please mark your calendars for Sunday December 22 at 6:00 p.m. This year’s play is called “It’s A Cool Life” which is set in a 50’s type diner and filled with fun characters that will prove to be inspirational as well as hilarious. Come and join us for a dinner of hamburgers and hot dogs and of course some wonderful desserts.

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
Box Tops for Education has gone digital on their products. If you want to continue saving these for Shambaugh Elementary School like we have been doing, you will have to do it individually on your own phone. You can go on their website and learn how to sign up. You may want to switch to another school that your children go to or have gone to in the past. I just have a plain cell phone that doesn’t have all the bells and whistles! The box we had at the church for people to put their saved box tops in has been removed. We thank all of you who participated in the past.
