The response was terrific on our first Sunday back. MANY thanks to all those who helped make this possible, including our Greeters and especially, our Sunday School volunteers! We virtually doubled the need for both in a very short time, and people responded beautifully. By the way, we still need more people for Sunday School- particularly at the 10:45 hour. If you can help, please see Jordan.
There has been a tremendous response (again!) to our Giving Forest, and there are about a dozen tags waiting to be claimed. Next Sunday, we bring the gifts back (unwrapped and with their tags, please) for the Big Sort.
At the same time, our children's ministries will be presenting the annual Christmas Pageant as a major part of the 10:45 service.
Tonight, our Worship & Arts ministry presents the second night of our annual Figgy Pudding Party. It was a rich feast for the soul last night and it promises to be the same tonight.
Communion was served this morning, as we usually do on the first Sunday of the month. What was particularly powerful about this Sunday was the presence of our Communion Class. For the past month they have been studying what Communion is and what it means to partake of it. This morning, many in the class received communion for the first time, and they also helped serve! What a powerful way to build faith and include children in the life of the whole church!
