Men’s Discipleship Study – We will continue a study for 2019-2020 led by Tim Ristow and based on the book “Navigate Your Faith: A Christian’s Field Guide to Not Getting Lost” (by Ron Pratt) this Tuesday, December 17th, at 7:30 P.M in the Christ’s Workshop.

Christmas Program Reception – For the fellowship to follow the service on the 22nd, please bring hors d’oeuvres or a dessert to share.

Discipleship Classes – please note there will be no Discipleship classes for adults or children on Sunday, December 29th.

Volunteers Sought – The altar guild of Christ is looking for a few more folks to be involved in helping out with preparing the altar for worship (i.e.  – keeping candles filled with oil, changing the pulpit/lecturn colors when needed, keeping the communion linens washed, helping put out flowers for Easter and Christmas).  It is not a greatly time-consuming job, but it is a necessary job in order to keep our sanctuary beautiful and fully functioning for our worship services.  If you have any questions about how often you are on duty, or about these tasks, or anything to do with this volunteer opportunity, please direct your questions/interest to the Church Office.

Thursday Morning Bible Study – Our study to start the new year will be the Lifelight Bible Study on the book of Judges (a 9- week course beginning on Thursday, January 16th at 10 am.) The cost is $10/person for the workbook. Those interested should sign-up on the sheet in the narthex. Payments can be made by using the specially marked envelope in the narthex (located next to the class sign-up sheet) and placing it into the offering plate. Payments are due by Sunday, January 5th. Please contact Jordan for more information.
