When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only
results. – Kenneth Blanchard

Membership Class. This class will be an interactive class on the
different areas of ministry of our church and where you might fit in.
Let’s praise God together and tell one another of How Great Is Our
God! Index cards are available on the small table. Write out how
God has shown Himself to you and post it on the bulletin board in
the Fellowship Hall.
Money for the White Christmas collection for Gift Cards for those
less fortunate, can be so designated and put in the Offering Box.

the program. “Many hands make light work”.

There are always things to do ahead of time for the Community
Christmas Party! We will need the activities set, tables up and
set and a list of other things to help it go smoothly that night.

rooms unattended. We are having a Lego Room, Cookie Decorating,
scented Play dough and the Nursery/Playroom plus the Photo booth.

and mingle.-Keep an eye out for a list of items to help get the
