Wreath Liturgy and Lighting
Seeking volunteers to light the Advent wreath during services, beginning December 3rd. If interested, see Diane Westlake. Our need is one group or family per service through Christmas Eve. It involves one person to read the liturgy, and another to light the candles. All materials provided.
BLANKETS & STUFFED ANIMALS
DEC 1-DEC 31
We will again collect NEW twin size or youth size blankets & NEW stuffed animals. These are provided to the New Baltimore Police Dept. and given to children in our area who are victims of abuse, are runaways, or experiencing other emergencies. Contact Candy Daily or the church office for information.
Hanging of the Greens
Help decorate the church for the Advent/Christmas Season –
Saturday, December 2nd at 9:00 a.m.
The United Methodist Men are coordinating the distribution of gifts and dinners for up to 20 local families in need. Delivery is scheduled for Sunday, December 17th. Anyone can help deliver. Your help is needed by purchasing a gift from the giving wreath (to be up on November 26th) and/or providing food from the donation board in the hallway. All items must be brought to the church by Friday, December 15th. Thanks for making a Christmas for families that might not have one if it were not for your generosity. Questions? Contact the church office.
An Ushers meeting will be held in the Sanctuary, December 10th, at 9:45 a.m. between services. We will be handing out the 2018 Usher package and will go over the roles and responsibilities of ushers at that time. Please bring any questions or suggestions.
