ADVENTURES IN ADVENT December 4, 11, 18 – 5:30 – 7:30 pm
Adventures-in-Advent is fast approaching and we are looking for your help. There are opportunities to serve as well as give.
Deck the Fellowship Hall-
We have all the decorations, we just need you to come and put them up after Thanksgiving and before Dec 4.
We need help setting up tables, prepping food, keeping the buffet stocked, and cleaning up after dinner.
Look forward to family fun celebrating the Advent season. The evening begins with a meal, followed my music and a message led by Craig Neumiller and finally parents and kids make family friendly crafts together. These are nights full of memories!
Contact Kenzie to volunteer your time at email@example.com.
HANDBELLS, ENSEMBLE & CHOIR
'Tis the season to begin practice for the Festival of Music, held on Sunday, December 8th.
Hand-Bell & Choir practices are under way. Join us Wednesdays from a 6:00 - 7:00 pm for bells followed by choir practice from 7:00 - 8:30 pm.
We are looking for vocalists and instrumentalist for both choirs.
Ensemble practice is now on Thursdays 6:30 - 8:00 pm we will practice the songs for the 'Festival of Music' in the first half hour. For more info. call Lisa 360 349-3437.
The Congregational President is challenging everyone to take a moment and think of areas you might be able and willing to serve, and to jump in!
Some examples might be:
Teaching or mentoring- leading or helping with Sunday School, serving on the Youth Ministry Board, starting or participating in a Life Group etc.
Direct service to others in need- visiting shut-ins, working with Embrace Grace, making quilts with Threads of Faith, etc.
Campus Maintenance- Lawn mowing, grounds maintenance, helping with projects when needed, attending Men of Faith once a month. Our old buildings and grounds need a lot of care, and this is one area where we especially lack volunteers.
Leadership- Most of our boards need more participation, some have only one person serving (or none!). Our elected church officers could use some help!
Clear the fellowship hall on Sunday, Nov 10 after second service for new flooring to be laid on Monday. Also Monday Eve/night to move stuff back when they are done.
Please contact Mike Todd at 360-491-3868 or to volunteer or
contact the Church office if you’d like to learn more.
