CHRISTMAS EVE

Candlelight Communion Services

The Christmas Joy Offering will be collected at our Christmas Eve Services. These gifts provide assistance to church workers through Board of Pensions programs and fund education at Presbyterian schools and colleges.

 

2019 Offering Envelopes are available in the transept room. Please take your envelopes home to save the Church the expense of mailing them.

 

YOU’VE GOT CHRISTMAS CARD MAIL! 

If you have friends at church you wish to send Christmas cards, bring the cards to church, organize them alphabetically, and put them in the Christmas card box on the table at the east entrance to the Sanctuary. Please check the box from time to time to collect your Christmas cards. Thank you! Note: Consider donating any money you save on stamps to your regular giving or to a favorite charity.

Thanks to all who have submitted stewardship commitments for 2019—it’s essential to our
