Comments from Rev. Larry J. Edmonds

Grace and peace to you in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,

As we enter into the final month of 2018 I hope that each of you had an enjoyable time of thanksgiving as you celebrated the day with your family and/or friends.

And now we enter into December with the Season of Advent that culminates with the celebration and remembrance of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

We will celebrate the four Sundays in Advent with the traditional lighting of the advent wreath in the beginning of each worship service. We will light the Christ candle on the wreath at our Christmas Eve service that will begin at 7:00 p.m.

Kevin Nicholas will read a story about Christmas to the children on Sunday, December 16 at the worship service. After the story we will sing some Christmas carols, close out the service, and then go to the fellowship hall for a covered dish luncheon and birthday party for Jesus.

We are helping 15 families with a Christmas dinner and gifts for their children. There will be tags on the Chrismon tree in the
sanctuary with the families names and the gender and age of the children. The gifts will need to be brought to the church by Sunday, December 16. We are inviting the families to come and worship with us that day and hope they will come. If they do, we will give them the dinners and gifts to take home that day.

Finally, Cathy, Joseph, Sara, Adam, Jackson, Rebecca, Chris and I wish you and your family a very merry and blessed Christmas

Pastor Larry
