Get the most out of the service by asking about our special listening devices. Pick up one in the back or see an usher for help.
 If yours isn’t working properly, don’t be bashful about raising your hand to ask for assistance.

During this year’s Advent season, our morning worship services will include traditional Advent candles, readings, banners, and special messages.  Our theme is “Advent of the Evangel”.  Throughout December, we’ll consider how the Christmas stories fit within the unique themes of each of the four gospels.  Let’s prepare our hearts together for this special season.

Be praying with the Nominating Committee as it meets to prepare a slate of candidates to be considered for office at the Annual Meeting in February 2012.  To submit names for consideration or to make any other comments pertaining to the nominating process, see Olive, Fred or Derek in the coming weeks.  Pray with us during this important time in our church.
