SIGN UP TODAY
by Pastor Richard
for the week beginning Sunday, December 3, 2017
Sign up today for our Christmas Luncheon on December 10th. We will be gathering at Marie Calendars. Our praise team will be with us leading carols.
Thank you for opening your hearts to Pastor Ed Trenner on November 26th while I was away at my family Christmas celebration. Pastor Ed shared with us about THANKSGIVING.
Put Ed & Joyce Faranda’s Christmas yard light display (Gena also contributes) on your LET’S GO SEE SOME CHRISTMAS LIGHTS list. The lights are co-ordinated with music and a message that you hear on your FM car radio. They live at 5203 Ashworth Street in Lakewood. If you can’t drive to see the dancing lights, then go to "dancingwithlights" on Facebook and get a glimpse of what they are doing. The music includes songs that you will never hear at Starbucks because they proclaim the Savior’s birth plus a reading of the Luke 2 account and also a lighting of the Advent candles. Saturday evening, December 9th from 7pm to 9:30pm the Farandas are having what you might call an OPEN HOUSE for their light display (Everyone welcome. Bring a dessert to share if possible). But plan to come.
This coming Thursday morning you and I will be hosting the Whittier area pastors here on church campus for their monthly prayer gathering. I thank the Lord we have a place to share.
The special Sundays of Advent begin today and continue through Christmas Eve. Each Sunday before Christmas day one of you families will share the Advent theme of the week, share a Scripture portion and lead us in prayer. Don’t miss any of these Advent times with the final presentation being our Christmas Eve service.
God’s best to you,
