Sunday is our Church Thanksgiving celebration! The Hospitality Committee is working hard to prepare an amazing Thanksgiving feast! Come hungry! If you ever are interested in helping with the prep, set up, clean up and all that goes into fellowship meals at our Church – don’t hesitate to reach out to by email: Tim Clark, Hospitality Chair (or phone: 270-871-7733). Many hands make for light work!
I also want to remind you that we are having a Dessert Auction at the luncheon to help raise funds for facility projects at Camp Kum Ba Ya. The auctioneer is set & we are in need of dessert/baked good donations! You can drop your donations off Saturday morning in the gym or on Sundaymorning before worship. This is a great chance to buy some desserts for your Thanksgiving feast!
Just around the corner is our Hanging of the Greens and Christmas Family Workshop on Sunday, November 26th at 4pm. The Christmas Family Workshop is a fun time in the gym for families to begin Christmas traditions. You are also invited to bring a favorite cookie or finger food to share! At 6pm we will have our Hanging of the Greens Service. Choirs of all ages will sing and play & together we will begin prepare our hearts for the birth of Christ!
What better way to prepare for Christ than by serving others? Here’s a list of some of the ways you are invited to spread the love of Christ this Season!
Opportunities to Serve:
Sponsor an Angel from the Giving Tree! These are all low-income children who have been given to us from the Family Resource Center. You take a “tag” off the tree and buy some or all of the requested items and return them to the Church wrapped by Sunday, December 10th. There are also book tags for you to buy a book for a child. *Please be sure to sign your name and the tag you take on our list by the tree. Contact Anita Alford with questions (email@example.com, 270-871-1872)
Sign up to deliver the food & Angel Tree Gifts! Want to spread some joy? We will need volunteers to deliver these items. Volunteers are meeting on Tuesday, December 19th at 9am. There is also a sign-up sheet in the entryway/narthex by the Angel Tree.
Give $20.17 to go towards buying fresh food items and meat for our Christmas Baskets of food. (One penny for every year since Christ’s birth. You can make checks to FCC).
Collect & bring in these food items for the Christmas Baskets & drop off in the entryway by December 17th: Animal Crackers or Cookies, Ritz or Regular Crackers, Jelly, Peanut Butter, Coffee, Cheerios, Oatmeal, Can goods, Instant Potatoes, Macaroni & Cheese.
Special Thanks to the Christian Action Committee who works to organize these efforts!
Glad to be in ministry with you! Peace, Kara
