A note from the pastor for December, 2018

Meanwhile the church throughout Judea, Galilee, and Samaria had peace and was built up. Living in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, it increased in numbers.

Acts 9:31

It’s very difficult to believe that it’s the final month of the year! December is my favorite month, due to the celebrations surrounding the birth of our Lord. It is my hope and prayer that this will be the greatest Advent/Christmas season you’ve ever had.
Here are some of the highlights for the month:
December 2: First Sunday in Advent. The bells are playing at both services. We will NOT have communion this Sunday.
December 5: Last Disciple class of the semester.
December 9: 2nd Sunday of Advent. The adult choir will present their cantata at 8:15, and the children’s choir will present their music at the 10:30 service. The Fellowship SS class will have their Christmas party at the church beginning at 3.
December 12: Volunteer breakfast at the church at 9 AM.
December 12-13: Preschool programs at 11:00.
December 15: Men’s breakfast at 7:30. Distribute White Christmas food baskets afterwards.
December 16: 3rd Sunday of Advent. The Children’s choir will present their music at 8:15 and the adult choir will present their cantata at the 10:30 service.
December 23: 4th Sunday of Advent. We will only have the 10:30 service.
December 24: Christmas Eve services at 6 and 11 PM.
December 30: We will only have the 10:30 service, following the Brunch. The youth are sponsoring the brunch.
If you are looking for somewhere to give an extra offering in observance of the Lord’s birthday, we encourage you to prayerfully consider writing a check to the regular budgetary offering or to the CLC fund.
Crystal, the boys, and I thank you for all you do for us. God bless you. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Proud to be your Pastor and friend,

 

- Bro. Steven
