The youth Sunday School (toddler through High School) and Kids Church will be collecting “Change for Chickens” during the month of December. Each class determines their goal amount to purchase chickens, goats, clean water, first aid supplies, or whatever they choose, to help families in third world countries through Samaritans Purse. Please help us instill the spirit of giving by helping your youth participate. Please see Tracy Pulliam with any questions. 

The Connecting Spot is back! You are invited for lunch, activities, and fellowship with men and women of all ages  Thursday, December 20 at 11:30am in the Family Life Center.  For lunch we will be having ham loaves and fixings. Mark will have some silly jokes, or games. Everyone is invited, and we encourage you to bring a friend. Please let us know in the church office if you can attend or if you need further information.

On Sunday, December 23rd is "Ugly Sweater Sunday". Don your favorite festive sweater and join us in a good ole fashion Christmas Carol sing-along! A photo booth will also be available...remember, if it's not posted on social media, it never happened!

We are in need of a few more individuals or couples who would like to help with picking up donuts or Fellowship Breakfast on Sunday mornings. This is on a monthly rotation, serving no more than twice a year. If you may be interested or have any questions, please contact the church office. Thank you!
