CHUPPERS
Chuppers (our Church Supper) takes place on Wednesdays - the starting time for the meal is 5:15 with Bible Studies for all ages beginning at 6:00 p.m.  Plan on bringing your family out on Wednesday nights for a great meal, some delightful fellowship and diving into the Word of God.  As the old saying goes "Seven days without church makes one weak!"  Call the church office by Tuesday afternoon to make a reservation for the meal.  The cost is $3.00 per individual or $8.00 per one household family. 
NO CHUPPERS UNTIL JANUARY 7TH - DUE TO THE HOLIDAYS.  SEE YOU BACK THEN!


CHRISTMAS CANTATA - UNSPEAKABLE JOY
Sunday, December 21st at 9:30 a.m. our Chancel Choir will be presenting the cantata, Unspeakable Joy in the sanctuary during the morning worship service.  With upbeat songs, dramatic moments and tender ballads the theme of Unspeakable Joy is powerfully revealed. Come celebrate the joy of knowing the One who was born at Christmas through this dynamic musical.


CHRISTMAS CAROLING
One of the great joys of the season is venturing out to the homes of our shut-ins and friends and sharing the songs of Christmas!  Our 2014 Caroling Party will be next Sunday, December 21st.  We will meet at the church at 4:00 p.m.  The more carolers we have, the more places we can visit.  Come join us!


CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICE
Wednesday, December 24th at 6:00 p.m. our family and friends will be joining together on Christmas Eve to celebrate the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ as a baby so many years ago.  We hope you will join us for this special, music filled service in our sanctuary on Christmas Eve.
