The Pastor’s Garage December 13th, 2017

Hi everyone. We’ve sure been experiencing some abnormally warm weather these days. I only cried a little about the fact that there is not enough snow for my snowmobile. Oh well, maybe it will still come! Once again, there is lots to talk about and remind you of, so buckle up.

Some important upcoming events:

  • We are going to wrap up men’s prayer for the year this Thursday at 6:00 am with a men’s breakfast! We’ll pray, have some great food and have a short bible study. See you tomorrow morning bright and early.
  • This Saturday at 9:30 am is the women’s Christmas brunch here at the church. Come and invite a friend.
  • On December 24th there is no morning service here. Instead we will be having an evening service at 7:00 pm to celebrate Christmas Eve! If you would like to attend a morning service, the Presbyterians will be celebrating at 10:30 am and all are welcome to join them.
  • On December 31st at 7:00 pm, there will be an informal gathering here at the church. We’ll be showing a movie that involves battling and a dwelling space and rhymes with star boom. This movie will help to remind us all of the importance of prayer. There will also be tables set up for board games. Please bring your own drinks and snacks.

This Sunday we are having a Christmas Celebration Service and an Ole Fashion Potluck (say that with a southern accent). The turkey and fixings will be provided. Please bring a salad or a desert and bring a friend who might need some encouragement. The service will be filled with carols, kids singing, and fun stuff for everyone. I’ve got something up my sleeve as well. I’ve attached a picture of a boat… that’s the only clue you’ll get.

Also, last night at our board meeting we begin working through an exercise to help plan out and dream for the future of our church. If you would like to join us in this process, please prayerfully work through the attached worksheet and either send it back to me or come and talk to me sometime in the new year. I’d love to hear your thoughts! We want to think big and I know God has given some of you some ideas that we might need to hear about.

Finally, please pray earnestly for the service this Sunday and please invite a friend.

A reminder that the hamper items are due this Sunday as they will be delivered shortly after.

God bless,

Pastor Dave
