THIS WEEK’S ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Hanging of the Greens
Prepare the way of the Lord!  We open the Advent season this week with our Hanging of the Greens service where we discover the significance of the decorations and symbols in our sanctuary–the Advent candles, evergreens, Chrismon tree, nativity, and poinsettias–and how they all point to the Christ of Christmas.

Christmas Choir
Christmas Choir is for everyone!  As we have done for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day in the past, we’re inviting everyone to sing in the choir on Sunday, December 12.  We will practice in the sanctuary after church on December 5.  Come help us fill the choir loft to sing a medley of Christmas carols.  Let heaven and nature sing!

Lottie Moon Christmas Offering
The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is an annual offering collected by believers around the world to support missions carried out by the International Mission Board.  100% of your gift goes directly to missionaries on the field in over 150 countries.  Thank you for your fervent prayer and financial generosity that has enabled the IMB to be unwavering in their commitment to get the gospel to the nations for more than 175 years.  Together, we do so much more!  Envelopes for this offering are in the pew racks.

Bible Study
Join us for Bible study at 6:30 this Wednesday night.  Pastor Don and Mary Etta will share about their trip to the Standing Rock Indian Reservation.  Bring your favorite Christmas dessert to share.

Back Creek Outreach
Thank you to the families who are buying items for the Back Creek Elementary children we are sponsoring for Christmas! Anita will still be taking monetary donations to use for any extra needs for the family.  Items will need to be back to the church by December 12 to get them to the school before  they let out for Christmas break.  Please wrap your items and place a removable note on the outside of the gift with the # of the student  and what the item is.

Craft Night
Ladies, Craft Night is here again!  Join us Tuesday, December 14 at 6 p.m.  A meal will be served.  We have 50 Christmas gifts to make, so please come help us show our Back Creek staff they are appreciated.
