   Holiday Ministries

                    Mark Your Calendars For Our 2011 Holiday Ministries

Christmas 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 20, 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.  Please pray for Scott Aiken who will be teaching
the Thanksgiving devotional!

Atterdag Village:
On Sunday, December 4, at 4 pm, we will minister at the Atterdag Village.  Please pray for Dennis McBride who will be teaching!  Our children will be singing in costume.  Plan to bring the whole family. 

Youth Christmas Party: 
The Junior High and High School kids (College too) will get together at the Shelly’s for their traditional Christmas Party.  More details will be coming when the time and date is determined.

December F.E.E.D.:  Monday, December 5, at 6 pm.
The ladies will gather together on, for food, fellowship, prayer and a craft project. As an outreach, we plan to make Christmas wreaths. More details will be coming soon, but ladies, mark your calendars.  The feedback from those who received wreaths last year was very encouraging.

Christmas Caroling & Chili:  Sunday, December 11, at 4:30 pm: 

We will carpool and sing at the homes of families and individuals within our Church body.  We will then return to

the Church for chili, cornbread, and Christmas cookies.  This is always a fun and memorable time for our church.

                    Christmas Fellowship Supper: Sunday, December 18, at 6 pm: 
                    We will gather at the Church for a Potluck Supper, and then enjoy a special Christmas program This has
                    become a delightful church holiday tradition.  Nursery care will be provided. 

Christmas Eve Service:  Saturday, December 24: 
Once again we share Christmas Eve with Trinity Baptist Church.  The candlelight communion service will be at
Community Church this year at 6 pm.  Nursery care will not be available.  We will also encourage the community
to join us for this service.  Please pray!

Christmas Worship Service:
Sunday, December 25, at 10 am:
We will meet for our annual Christmas Worship celebration.  Please pray that many unbelievers will  respond to our advertising and attend our service.  Pray also for God’s blessing on the preaching of  His Word – that Christ will be exalted and that the gospel will lead sinners to Him in saving faith!
