Dear Friends,
  
   What a November we have had!  Operation Christmas Child has been a huge success!  We celebrated Thanksgiving with our friends and families.   Then, Hanging of the Greens!   And we are just getting started.  The holiday season is just beginning.
    This is such a happy time of year.  It is a time of celebration with our loved ones.  It is a time of great joy as we anticipate the coming of our Lord and Savior.  But for some, it will be a very lonely, sad time. Some have suffered loss this past yer; the loss of a loved one due to death, loss of one's own health and well-being, loss of a marriage due to divorce, or the loss of a job.   There are some in our congregation as well as the greater community who will find it difficult to celebrate and experience the great joy of this season for many reasons.
    Perhaps you know someone who may be going through a hard time this holiday season.   Perhaps it is you.   Our awareness that many are suffering sorrow or stress during the holidays has inspired us to open our doors and hearts to them with a very special Blue Christmas Service on Saturday, December 8, at 6:00 pm. It is my prayer that his service will bring comfort and peace to those who are having difficulties this time of year.  If you know of any one who may need this special ministry, please offer to bring them.  All are welcome.
    Our choir has been working very hard practicing to bless us with a Cantata performance on December 16 at the 10:45 am service.  There will be no 8:30 am service that morning.   Our choir has worked very hard to bring this very special service to us, so I hope you can make it and that you will invite anyone else who you think might enjoy it.
    Christmas Eve is on Monday this year.   As always, we will give you two opportunities for worship;  7:00 pm and 9:00 pm.  Come and celebrate with us!
    Many blessings during this joyous season and may your new year be filled with the love of God, the joy of family, and laughter shared with good friends.
    May the grace of the Father, and the love of the Son, and the communion of the Holy Spirit abide upon you this day and every day unto the ages to come.

                                                                      
On the Potter's wheel,
