The fourth week of Advent and the final week of the Redemption of Scrooge led us to a powerful day of worship Sunday.

We were blessed with the Children’s Christmas program directed by Mrs. Cindy Harvel, great ministry and what a blessing for the children to share the story of Christmas in this way.  Thank you to all the children and the great ministry team (adult participants and parents) for providing this program.

See you next Sunday to CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS!

Powerful worship this morning, the Life of Christmas present through the story of Scrooge.  The Luke 15 parables of lost & found remind us of God’s desire and pursuit of us, our loving Father seeks us out, we must accept the gift of grace and share that blessing with others, that God may be using us to pursue.  What will you do different this Christmas as a result of the love of God?  Scrooge’s heart was transformed to see and act upon the needs of those around him, will you allow yourself to be filled with God’s grace and share that love with others this Christmas?

Community Center News

Here is an update from our community center coordinator Cindy Boettcher.

community-center-november-2016-thankful-workers

During this Thanksgiving season, I thought that it would be a good time to have a “Thankful Tuesday”  and present a  “thank you certificate” to three people who have gone  above and beyond this past year for the community center.  They really make a difference in this place and I knew that they needed to be recognized.  They are left to right:  Gary Coryea –He is our Bingo caller and he is so faithful and dedicated and he does a real good job, Gudrun Zarczynski – for always helping in the kitchen by serving our lunches, doing the dishes, and always making the birthday cakes for the month and Don George – who had been in charge of the center while I was on leave and is always willing to help with whatever we may need as far as supplies for the center.  Thank you all, see you soon around the center. Blessing, Cindy
