Congratulations to Lois Sell on the birth of her twin grandchildren last Sunday evening. Everyone is doing well!

All children are invited to help assemble fruit baskets while sharing a meal this evening beginning at 4:30 at the church. After the meal we will visit several people in our community to distribute the baskets and sing for them.

There is a personalized note from the executive director of the Valley Mission on the bulletin board thanking us for our contributions toward the Thanksgiving basket project.

The Women’s Care group will not meet this month.

We have been invited to join Springdale Mennonite Church for a Christmas Eve service on Monday, December 24th, beginning at 6:30pm.

Please Prayer For:

    • Susan Huyard as she anticipates surgery on December 20th.
    • Those who are traveling this holiday season.
    • Those who are suffering from seasonal illnesses.
    • BJ Rohr and Merton Greenleaf, our friends and family dealing
      with cancer and its treatment.

Luke 3:3, “He went into all the country around the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.”
