Whew!  Just got done with our turkey dinner, so it’s time to let you know what you need to know for December.  Here it is….


We collected 80 boxes for Operation Christmas Child…WooHoo!  $574.03 was also collected which will cover the $560 we needed to ship the boxes out.  God is good!  Thanks to everyone who helped.  Only 350 more days until next year’s collection…I think I’ll start early this time!


Reminder:  Immediately after the December 1st  a.m. service, there will be a business meeting to vote on the proposed budget and a couple other items.  I’ve been told the meeting will be SHORT!  You’ll have to let me know if it actually is!  Someone vote yes for me!


Saturday, December 14 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. the youth will be out trashing Pastor Brent’s place (I mean, having their Christmas party)!  I’m not sure if there is a gift exchange or if the end time is correct.  Check with Pastor Brent…he’s the MAN!


Sunday, December 15 at 6:00 p.m. is a Soup Fellowship.  We’ll be remembering Lottie Moon a little differently this year.  The evening will have a bigger focus on missions and there will still be an opportunity to give to the Lottie Moon offering during the evening program.  It’s December, it’s cold, you need some soup!  Bring it, share it, we’ll see you there!


Let’s not get Sabrina too excited.  Let her know ASAP what (not if) you will be doing for our church family Christmas on December 22 at 6:00 p.m.  Call her at (765) 562-2249 so she can get an order of service ready.  I’m doing something, so you should do something!  C’mon peeps, it’s FUN!


The church offices will be closed December 24, 25, 26, 27 and 31.  Also, there will be no 252 or Wednesday studies on December 25 or January 1.  Enjoy your families!  See you next year…or at least until the next newsletter.


Quick preview for 2014…just under 120 days until Vacation Bible School!  I know! Crazy, right?!  Be thinking about what you want to do to help this year.  And a little hint…you’ll want to break out your cool, black shades…
