A Life Giving Christmas

This past Sunday we talked about JOY!  We discussed the ways we can share the joy God has given us with others, especially during this holiday season.  And what better way to live into joy than to spend time in fellowship with one another playing Christmas games?  So games were played:

Also, there are lots of great things going on in the next few weeks that I wanted to make sure you were aware of!

Connections: FUSION Gathering (aka Youth Group) will meet at our Connections Sunday night discipleship this Sunday, December 22nd as we finish our Advent study, "A Life-Giving Christmas".  Join us at 5:45pm in the fellowship room for coffee and dessert, then youth group in the youth suite from 6-7:30pm.  ***Please note: There will be NO CONNECTIONS on Sunday, December 29th.  

Caroling: Please join us tonight, Tuesday, December 17th at Brookview Assisted Living at 6pm for caroling to the residents in the dining room.  We will carol for about 30 minutes as Sarah Critzer accompanies us on the piano, and lyrics will be provided!  Wear something festive!

Also, you are invited to join us on Sunday, December 22nd at the Wall's house at 1109 High Street at 3:45pm for caroling through the Avenues.  Dress warm!

Christmas Card Delivery Service:  Don't forget about our Youth Mission Trip fundraiser that is going on right now!  We've already raised $105 and are hoping to raise at least enough for one youth to attend the mission trip ($325) during this first fundraiser.

Spontaneous Christmas Pageant:  Our 5:30pm Christmas Eve service needs your help!!!  I need youth to help with the Scripture readings and lighting of the Advent wreath.  If you can serve in this way, please let me know!

Youth Ushers:  The youth are scheduled to usher for our 11am worship service on December 29th!  Please let me know if you are available to serve in this way.

Youth Mission Trip:  Don't forget to make your plans to attend this summer's youth mission trip to Project SPY in Christiansburg, VA!  The registration deadline is January 31st!
