Special Services: Christmas Eve service will be at 7:00 p.m.  It will be a candlelight song service under the theme “Finally Fulfilled.” Christmas Day service will be at 9:00 a.m. (no regular Sunday service that day). It will be a song service with Holy Communion under the theme “Joy to the World.”  New Year’s Eve will be a special Communion service at 7:00 p.m.

Help Needed: We could use some individuals to help pick up people and bring them to church on Sundays.  These might be shut-ins or college students.  Most, if not all of them, will be in town.  If you would be willing to help, a sign-up sheet is in the cry room.  I will probably draw up a weekly schedule.  Also, we could use some men to serve as council members next year.  There is only one meeting per month.  Our present council members have been serving for a number of years, and some of them would like a break.
