We plan to have a meeting of the book club on the third Wednesday of each month. Between meetings we will read a book and report on it when we meet again--we will each read a different book with a Christian spiritual focus). Meetings will be at 7:00 in the library. Although your book choice may be one of your own, we encourage use of the church library. If you would like to join us, let Noel Bowling or Les Plymale know.
If you know of any families that could benefit from our church food ministry, encourage them to come. They can sign up starting at 1:30 p.m. and our time of singing, sharing, and hearing from the Word begins at 2:00 p.m. (during which time, folks are preparing your box.) Because some of the food we provide is from the USDA, families need to qualify to participate and there is a form to be completed. God is providing us with the resources to bless others!
In our songs, Scripture reading, and time of reflection as we light the first candle, we will focus on the Magi and their gifts for the Saviour. To prepare, in your quiet time or family devotions, read Psalm 72:10,11 and Matthew 2:1-12.
We will also have a drama presentation, an adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol!
In our songs, Scripture reading, and time of reflection as we light the first candle, we will focus on the messengers of the Saviour’s birth: the angels and the shepherds. To prepare, in your quiet time or family devotions, read Romans 12:16; Luke 2:8-20; and 1 Peter 1:10-12.
We are scheduled to serve at Second Helping on December 5th. If you are able to help prepare food or serve, please contact Breezy Peterson.
