Come and join the Conversational Dinner group caroling on Sunday, December 2nd at 4:30 p.m.  We will meet at the Stone Brooke Clubhouse located at the corner of Fletcher Boulevard and Stone Brooke Road.  Please bring a favorite snack or Christmas goody to share after we return from caroling. Table service will be furnished.  All church members are very welcome to join the group for caroling.  As they say, the more the merrier!  We plan to disperse from the clubhouse to do our caroling by 5 p.m.  Please contact Pam Mundt or Marlene Johnson if you have any questions.

ADVENT  “SOUP AND SWEET” SUPPER IS DECEMBER 5 The Annual Advent “SOUP AND SWEET” Supper will be on Wednesday, December 5, at 5:45 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall.  Members of the congregation are asked to bring soup or sweets to share as well as other needed items.  There is a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board in the narthex.  Please sign up for the item you wish to share and also if you are able to help with kitchen duties before, during or after the meal.  We look forward to sharing good food and warm fellowship before our first Advent Service.

Come have fun decorating the church for Christmas! Friday, Dec. 7th at 1:00 pm we will be decorating the church for Christmas. Come one, come all, the more the merrier. We will also need help on Dec. 5th after the Advent service to bring the decorations down from the old choir loft.  Thank you!
