1 May 13, 2018 Christmas Eve, December 24, 2018 Questions? Ask anyone with a red nametag for information about our church. Welcome Flyers for new worshipers are found on the Welcome Table in the entryway. Please fill out the Thanks for Being Here card in the pew rack. Time will be given to write any prayer requests and/or comments on your worship experience on the back of the card, then place it in the offering plate. A staffed nursery is available in the education wing for children 5 & under. Children s activity bags for worship are available on the rack by the bookshelf. We are glad that you are here! Rev. Bill Reinhart, Pastor Tonight s Sermon: The Real Christmas Story: A Christmas Carol Nobody likes a Scrooge, especially during the Christmas season. But even Ebenezer Scrooge could have his heart softened and his life transformed. That s good news, because each of have been Scrooges in our own way, content to allow the poor to suffer. Jesus was born to transform the world. Will you say Bah Humbug!, or will you let the Holy Spirit give you a new chance at living! Copies of the sermon manuscript are available before the service from any usher, and can also be found posted on our church website. Words will be projected for all songs. Some songs are also found in the, black hymnal or gray songbook found in your pew and page numbers are listed accordingly in your bulletin. Coffee is served between worship services each week in the Fellowship Hall. Devotional resources are available on the bookshelf in the entryway. Hearing assist devices are available, please ask an usher. Joyful Praise Worship 8:15 am Coffee Fellowship & Education 9:20 am Celebration Worship 10:30 am

3 Help With the Christmas Dinner We have posted the Christmas Day Dinner signup sheets with many ways to support this wonderful community outreach ministry our 22 nd annual dinner!! Donate food, supplies or cash. (Food items need to be here by Sunday, Dec. 23 at worship.) Post flyers around town. Take a flyer to post in your apartment building or a favorite store. See Laurie immediately if you could help with this! Invite someone who might be alone pick up invitations and/or flyers in entryway. Help set up tables on Sunday, December 23. Volunteer to work one or more of the shifts on Christmas Day. End of Year Giving Deadline Please note, all 2018 contributions should be in by Monday, December 31. Thank you in advance for your faithful giving as we end 2018 and look to a new year. Though we are slightly behind currently, we hope to close the year with all our financial obligations met. Wesley Meal Cakes Needed It s hard to think past Christmas baking, but ten white cakes are needed for the Wesley meal on Saturday, December 29. Sign up today if you can provide one or two. Thanks! Take Poinsettias Home After Christmas Eve services are over, you are welcome to take home any poinsettias which you donated. Thank you again for brightening our sanctuary this Christmas season! Foster Parents Needed Wright County has a pressing and continuous need for foster parents. Children enter foster care due to significant life factors, often including abuse or neglect. The overall goal of foster care is to provide children with a temporary, stable, and caring family setting until they are reunited with their family or until a permanency plan is established for them. Those interested in learning more about foster care are invited to attend one of the upcoming orientations on January 8, February 12, April 9 or May 14 from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm at the Wright County Law Enforcement Center room S2021A. You may also contact Marisa Ferguson at or Coffee Hour Offerings To improve hospitality for guests, we moved the coffee hour fellowship basket from the front end of the refreshment table to the side counter where regulars can donate, but guests won t feel obligated. Your donations allow us to continue buying coffee direct from Guatemalan farmers, providing them a better living and us better coffee! Christmas Day Dinner Tomorrow You are welcome to come enjoy the Christmas dinner tomorrow at 1:00 pm, or if you re interested in helping, we re still a bit short of volunteers. See Laurie. Comfort Choir Available There is a small group of people in our congregation willing to come to the home or bedside of a person who is ill or in hospice, even on short notice, to quietly sing hymns or praise songs. If you have a family member or friend who might be blessed or comforted in this way, please contact Craig at or Confirmation Corner This Wednesday, December 26 we will not have class as it is Winter Break. The deadline has passed to register for the required Confirmation Retreat in January so please get the forms and money in ASAP. If you are in need of a scholarship, let the office know.
