It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas

After the 11:00am service on November 20th

The Worship Committee needs your help. They will begin transforming the sanctuary into a place filled with lights, a tree, nativity scene and other festive decorations. If this will be your first Advent season with us, you are in for a real treat. Our already beautiful sanctuary takes on a truly magical appearance during this time of year. However, this transformation can not take place without the help of our congregation. If you will be available that afternoon to lend a helping hand, please use the Tear Sheet in your weekly bulletin to sign up or contact the church office.

CCAP Christmas Give-Away

December 12th @ Mt. Carmel Family Life Center

Although many of us wish to ignore the fact that Christmas is right around the corner, the people with CCAP and the members of the First United Methodist Men’s group are already busy making plans.Before Christmas every year, CCAP and the United Methodist Men put together a huge giveaway for families in our area that would not have any kind of Christmas without this effort. Businesses donate toys and clothing year round to help make the giveaway a success but that is not all that is needed.

Bobby Dick is chairing this worthy event and is in need of donations, both monetary and food. Unlike in years past, this year we are looking for people willing to donate pots/crock-pots of Vegetable Soup, Chili, or Sloppy Joe. We are also in need of snack items such as: pretzels, goldfish, M&M (enough to make 350 snack bags). We will also need supplies so that we can give out cookies, coffee, and hot cocoa to the people waiting in line. As you can see, many items are needed to make this event a success. So any donations, whether food or monetary will be greatly appreciated.

As you can imagine, food and drinks are not the only things needed. We are also in need of people willing to join us on December 12 from 7am-1:30pm to help prepare and service. I took part in this event for the first time last year and believe me, you will leave knowing that God’s grace and love was on full display. Although Christmas is not all about the gifts, it is amazing how those gifts can change a life. I encourage you to be a part of this moving ministry.It really will get you in the holiday spirit.

If you plan to make a donation or are planning to volunteer your time on the 12th please let Bobby Dick know. He can be reached at 540-539-4459.

"Lets Go to Bethlehem" Children's Christmas Program

December 16th @ 7:00PM via the Fellowship Hall in our Downtown Campus

We are still in need of volunteers to help with this year’s children’s Christmas program. We are looking for people willing to play biblical characters and help with set-up/tear down. We are also looking for donations of children’s religious items (small bibles, religious pencils, candy, etc.…) for goody bags. These items will need to be at the church no later than December 12 to ensure we have enough time to put the bags together. If you are interested in signing up to help with this event you can use your weekly Tear Sheet on your bulletin or reply to this email. Thank you in advance for help to make this Christmas program possible.
