“Making Room”
Sunday, December 11, 2011
10:30 am
The Reverend Stephen Cook

The church season of Advent is about preparing for and making room for new life, with all of its unexpected joys and challenges.

New Member Orientation
Are you new to the church? Have you been around for a while but haven’t decided whether or not actually to “sign the book” and become a voting member? If you would like to explore this, you are invited to join Mr. Cook after services on December 11th for an orientation to membership

What's Happening in Religious Education

There will be no Story For All Ages during Service this Sunday so that the kids can spend more time preparing for the holiday play. Please send your children directly upstairs at 10:30.

After the service, the children will rehearse for the holiday play in the Sanctuary until 12:30. During that time, parents are asked to attend a brief information session and volunteer sign-up for our regular church school classes, which will resume after the holidays. The meeting will begin at 11:50 and will be held in the rear of the Sloop Room.
