One of my most special church gatherings of the year is our Thanksgiving service which we observed this past Wednesday evening. One of the prayers I share each November is in my quote of the week below.
Please welcome my friend, Ed Trenner, to our pulpit today. Ed has pastored here in Southern California over the years. I first met Ed when he was an area director with Youth for Christ many years ago.
Our Daily Bread booklets that begin December 1 are available today. Take one or more for the people you share these with.
The special Sundays of Advent begin December 3rd, 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.
THANK YOU GALS for how pretty our church looks today with the decorations of advent. A group of you came out the day after Thanksgiving to DECORATE.
Today, Claudia and I are out of the area for an early Christmas celebration with the Todd clan. Our families are involved in a number of churches and end up selecting one Sunday each holiday season to gather and celebrate.
Sign up today for our Christmas Luncheon on Sunday afternoon, December 10. It will be a good time to gather together.
God’s best to you,
