ADVENT WEDNESDAYS CONTINUE THIS WEDNESDAY, DEC. 19 WITH A SPECIAL CHRISTMAS PARTY!!
On Dec. 19th we are going to have a Christmas party in our downstairs fellowship area. Everyone is asked to bring an appetizer or dessert to share. We will have a Christmas hymn and carol sing, games, cookie decorating, and a Christmas photo booth for you and your family to get a nice (or goofy) picture taken.
Please make plans now to join us for this wonderful preparation of our Lord's birthday!!

SUNDAY SCHOOL/KID TIME HELPERS) THIS IS WHERE WE STILL NEED THE MOST HELP!!

(One or two more needed for each service!!)
Here's how it will work-- Kids will go to Sunday school right after the first service until the second service starts. Approximate time will be 10:15-10:45.
Also, halfway through the second service, at approximately 11:15, the kids who are at worship will leave and have a lesson on their own while the rest of the congregation will finish worship.
Monday night will be the same as the late service on Sunday as long as we have people to take kids and help them.
GET YOUR CHRISTMAS CARDS FROM CHURCH!!!
They are $6 a box. They're on the glass cabinet in the fellowship hall. Please put the money for them in the box on the cabinet, or in a marked envelope on the office desk.

Any plastic lid will do! They need 300lbs total! There are boxes in the narthex and in Little Lambs.
OPERATION BACKPACK CONTINUES!!
There are hundreds of kids in need in Warrenton. Many of them go to homes without food, especially on weekends. The food that is collected from us gets put into kids backpacks discreetly on Fridays and sent home with them on Fridays. This month's collection is individually wrapped snacks and packets of oatmeal.
