                                                     ANNOUNCEMENTS

December 9, 2018

All Church Christmas Potluck today following the Children’s Christmas Program. Everyone is invited. If you didn’t bring a dish to share, please come anyway! There’s always enough food for all!

Today our Mission Committee is hosting an Alternative Gift Market using the Presbyterian Giving Catalog. We hope that you will consider giving “a gift to the world” in honor of loved ones this Christmas. Catalogs are available this week in the Fellowship Hall.

Christmas Joy Offering. It is our privilege to participate in this PCUSA offering that celebrates the indescribable gift of our Lord Jesus. Our offerings support students at racial and ethnic schools who are preparing for ministry. Our offerings also assist current and retired church workers who find themselves in crisis or financial need. Please use the special envelopes today and next Sunday to make a contribution to these worthy causes.

Advent Devotions. “God with Us” devotional booklets are available today in the Narthex. Pick one up today to use at home.

Poinsettias for the Holidays! Poinsettias are welcome to brighten the sanctuary for Advent and Christmas. Please purchase a plant and set it at the front of the sanctuary. After Christmas you may take it home.

Stewardship for 2019. We continue to receive faith pledges for the 2019 budget. If you would like to make a financial commitment to the church, you can find a pledge card in the pew pockets. Thank you for your generous giving in response to God’s grace in your life.

Looking for a new nursery caregiver. Our Sunday nursery caregiver has moved away and we are again without a regular person to care for our youngest children. We are looking to hire a person for this position, but until we do, we need adult volunteers to help.
