NEWS & NOTES:

Christmas Greetings - If you or your children or family would like to share a Christmas card/greeting with the church family, please place in the designated Christmas Greetings box on the table in the foyer.

The church budget is running a deficit.  Please prayerfully consider this need as we are nearing the end of our church budget year.

Contact Pastor Phil if you would like him to come to your home for a visit or feel free to stop by the church during his office hours listed each week in the bulletin.

Greeter sign-up sheet is on the table in the foyer.  If you are able to do one week or more we invite you to sign the dates you can help.  Thank you!      - Worship Committee
