What’s Goin’ On Newsletter Dec. 2014

WHAT’S GOIN’ ON?! Newsletter

 

It’s the end of another year. Wow! Where did the time go? Forgot what happened last month, or were unable to make it every Sunday?  Let me remind you what went on in November…

 

Collections for Operation Christmas Child this year were fabulous!  I talked with Regina today, and she, along with a couple of her elves, delivered 205 shoeboxes to the Christian Church.  Well done!  That is a lot of children who will receive a little bit of love from you and a huge way to show them the love of Christ!  Also, last month, Pastor Garry held another Membership 101 information class with 12 people attending. Miss out? I’m guessing you’ll have another chance…I’ll be sure to keep you informed!  Our church family has been blessed, yet again, by the hiring of Rick Cobb as a part-time Associate Pastor.  He will work Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays each week. Stop by and give him a big ol’ Parke county wave…HEY!!! Last up for last month was our Thanksgiving meal.  It was just amazing wasn’t it?! Right? (OK, confession time…I’m writing this before the actual meal, but it’s food and we’re Baptists!…you know it was good!)

 

Coming up in December (drum roll, please!) is a Church Council meeting on Sunday, December 7, at 8:30 a.m.  Following the morning worship will be a business meeting (starting to see a pattern with this?).  We’ll be voting on the 2015 budget and nominations, affirming new members and hearing more about the Planning Team Pastor Garry would like to set up. Plan on attending!

 

Saturday, December 13, from 8:00 a.m. to noon will be a church work day.  How about a Christmas theme? We could sing carols while we work! Or wear red and green! Maybe we could dress as elves!…I’m going to start looking for something festive to wear right now!  Do you really want to miss seeing that?! Just sayin’! See you there!

 

Sunday, December 21, at 6:00 p.m. will be our Christmas Candlelight Service.  I know Sabrina was going around church asking people if they would be willing to participate.  If she hasn’t gotten to you yet, hunt her down! Personally, I’m hoping Elvis will show up again! Don’t miss this fun and wonderful time with your church family, quirks and all! That’s it for 2014! Remember to slow down and focus on all of your blessings! God is just so good! All.
