Announcements

 

Signup sheets are on the table in the lobby for the Quiet Retreat planned for Saturday, January 10, here at the church. Theme is “Who do you say that I am?” David Douglas will speak and his book Letters of Faith will be a resource. Details will be in the winter church newsletter at the end of December.

 

The next Back Pew Gallery show is Abstracts in Color January 9 to February 22. If you have art that might fit this description, you can contact Carol Fallis or Andy Ritch.

 

We need your help placing and lighting the 200+ Farolitos on Christmas Eve before services. It’s fun for the whole family, so come around 4:00 to help.

 

Jim Brown is exploring the feasibility of leading a small group to the West Bank in February of 2015 to take part in an Olive Tree Planting Project sponsored by the YM/YWCA of Jerusalem. The dates for the trip are February 6–18, with 4–5 days of tree planting in the Bethlehem area, visits to Nazareth and other Biblical sites, conversations with Palestinian and Jewish peace advocates, and an overnight stay with Christian families in the West Bank village of Jifna. Details about the Olive Tree Planting Project can be found at www.jai-pal.org. Contact Jim at jinibro1@comcast.net for more information.

 

Newsletter Deadline for the Winter Edition covering January and February has been extended to December 26. It will be sent out the last week of December.

 

We are not collecting greeting cards any more this season. We collect them for a few weeks only each fall. Thank you for your contributions!
