CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICE 5:00
What is your family’s tradition on Christmas Eve? Some begin arriving from out of town to spend Christmas Day with family. If yours arrive in time, bring the whole family to the Christmas Eve Communion Service. It adds a deeper meaning to the family’s Christmas celebration to worship together on Christmas Eve. We will have music, scriptures, a message, and then communion. Your family will be blessed. Also invite others you know who would like to attend a Christmas Eve service.
BEGIN THE NEW YEAR WITH AN IN DEPTH BIBLE STUDY
We have invited Seminary professor, Dr. Peter Rhea Jones, of our MacAfee Seminary in Atlanta to be our guest teacher. The seminary was begun many years ago by Mercer University. He is Professor of New Testament and Preaching. Dr. Jones has been with us before with studies on the Sermon on the Mount and The Parables of Jesus. The study this year is designed to strengthen our faith by reaping the harvest from the Epistle of I John. The dates are January 9.10, & 11. We will begin on Friday evening, have a Saturday Morning session, and conclude on Sunday Morning in Sunday School and Worship.
THANKS TO OUR VOLUNTEER SECRETARIES
Julie Whitworth has given years of valuable service to the church in preparing our bulletins. She has asked for others to help now and Cathy Newton and Martha Paye have stepped forward. They will be preparing the bulletins after Christmas.
THE SOUND BOARD
Darryl Whitworth has been faithfully operating the Sound Board and Recording operations for three years. He now has heavy responsibilities caring for his parents and has asked to have additional help in this vital part of our services. Jacob Engstrom has learned the board, but he will also need help on Sundays when he cannot be present. We will have a training session soon for those who are interested in learning the operation. Please let the Pastor know of your interest. Will Ridings has learned the video procedures and provides us with a DVD each week of the worship service.
