December 20 ECW Meeting to Be Held to Finalize Charitable Fair Giving
Join us for a brief ECW meeting after we decorate (green) the church on Sunday, December 20.
Over coffee hour, we will discuss the net sales total we have to work with and finalize the amount to be given to the
charities selected for this years fair. The Christmas fair committee is adjourning for the holidays and will be leading a
more detailed discussion and recap of the fair at our January general meeting. The nominating committee for 2016
officers will also provide an update at the December 20 meeting.
ECW Bulletin Board on Hiatus for the Holidays!
With the reconfiguration of the Sunday School area, the ECW bulletin board has been retired for the holidays. Please
see the coffee hour sign up on the vestry and service schedule bulletin board by the back door to sign up for remaining
2015 coffee hours. A sign up for 2016 will soon be posted as well.

A Christmas Affair
After our Christmas Eve service, we will once again be enjoying a lite reception. Offerings will include desserts and
baked goods, lite protein such as deli meats and/or deviled eggs, fruit and cheese. A sign up is located on the bulletin
board downstairs by the door. If you would like to bring something, please sign up so we can plan accordingly.
Anything is appreciated, but most importantly, plan to come so that you can partake of the beautiful service and
fellowship.
PRAYER REQUESTS
As requested, Prayer Request Cards are now on hooks in the pews, as well as on the table at the back of the nave.

IN OUR COMMUNITY:
A note from Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry:
With the sudden dip in temperatures we would like to ask for contributions of warm winter hats for adults and
children. These could be hand knit or new, purchased hats and may be left at the pantry any Monday, Wednesday or
Friday morning until 11 AM. A full tummy and a cozy warm hat can do so much for one's sense of well being as we face
the colder months. Thanks for your help.
Please continue bringing plastic grocery bags and food for the Little Red Wagon. Thanks!

Remember to wear your nametags each Sunday!
