Holiday Ministries

 Mark Your Calendars For Our 2010 Holiday Ministries 

                    Operation Christmas Child: 

The shoe boxes need to be at the Church by our evening service on November 21.  If you cannot put together a shoe box, but would like to contribute to this ministry, there is a Samaritan’s Purse catalog on the back table with specific ways to help. 

ChristmasChristmas Cards For Our Missionaries: 

Encouraging missionaries who are often separated from their families, country and friends is one of the most critical roles we play.  We can do that at this time of year by remembering them with a Christmas card.  Boxes for the Missionary cards will be found on the Missions table beginning next week. 

Missionary Christmas Gifts:

There will be a basket on the Holiday table to collect funds toward Missionary Christmas gifts.  We will be sending monetary gifts to our missionary partners: The Kleis family, and the James family.   

Thanksgiving Service:

We will celebrate Thanksgiving as a Church Family on Sunday, November 21, at 6 pm. This special service will include a devotional, corporate praise, prayer and the reading of the “leaves” from our traditional Thanksgiving Tree.  It will be a blessing for the entire family. Families are encouraged to bring a pumpkin or apple pie for our fellowship time after the service.  Nursery care will be provided.
