Let’s praise God together and tell one another of How Great Is Our God!
An index card is enclosed for you to include your praise on the bulletin
board in the fellowship hall. We will be having lots of guests to our
church. It would be amazing to see the board overflowing with ways God
has shown himself to the church people and how we can use the bulletin
board as a testimony to those who read it.
This is the last week for the donations of money for the White Christmas
collection, to go for Gift Cards for those less fortunate. You may designate
your gifts as such and put them in the Offering Box.
