This Sunday, Dec. 15, you can be part of the offering for the ABWM White Cross Mission Quota. The money will go to support the Dayton Christian Center. At noon on Wednesday, Dec. 18, present, past and incoming deacons and their spouses will meet at Ponderosa for a fellowship meal.

SAVE THE DATE for Christmas Sunday, Dec. 22, when the youth will present a Christmas program. You won’t want to miss this one.

A reminder: You can bring Christmas cards you want to send members of the congregation. No postage is needed. Just put their name on the envelope and the youth will sort them and have them ready for pick-up from the table in the hallway. Check there before you leave church and take what has been set aside for you and your family.

We’re still collecting non-perishable items for the Edna Martin Christian Center. Place your donated items in the tub in the hallway. And SAVE THE DATE: At 6 p.m., Dec. 24 – Christmas Eve – we’ll be having a short service to help us remember, “The Reason for the Season.” You’ll have time to get back home and prepare for your own family festivities.
