WORSHIP SONGS, BULLETIN & NEWSLETTER ANNOUNCEMENTS—Our church office will continue our current deadlines. Worship songs are due on Wednesday. Also, let the church secretary, Debi Ashley, know if you have a church related announcement a.s.a.p. Final proofs and printing is done on Friday mornings. Thank you to everyone who assists to have our Worship Service come together.
PERMANENT NAME TAGS have been made for Sunday Services. Please get your alphabetized name tag at the Sanctuary door and wear it during the service. When the service is finished, please remove your name tag and put it in the basket by the door before leaving. We are doing this so Pastor Tom and Naomi can get to know us better.
PASTOR TOM DEWITT INFORMATION
As we approach the Christmas season with all of its busyness, let me remind you of three important lessons:
1. Jesus is the real reason for the season. He came as a babe to live among us and to be our Savior.
2. Jesus is the only way of salvation. He alone died for your sins and mine. Accept His gift of eternal life.
3. Jesus loves you. Turn to Him now for peace and comfort.
Let this be the Christmas you focus on what is really important, your relationship with God through our lord Jesus Christ. What a privilege it is to be your pastor. Naomi and I wish you a very Merry Christmas!
Christmas Eve service will be celebrated this year on Monday, December 24. Pastor Larry will be doing the service. A future time of the service will be in the December bulletins.
CHRISTMAS CHEER - Would you like to brighten people’s lives within our congregation who could use encouragement during the Christmas season? If so, you can donate gift cards in any amount from Wal-Mart, Woodman’s, Kohl’s or any other store of your choosing. Please bring them to the church office Secretary, Debi Ashley, Ron Westby or Karen Georgeson. Thank You!
