2 Candlelight and Carols Attention Ladies of the Congregation: You are invited to Candlelight and Carols a new event for the ladies of Holy Cross and their guests. On Tuesday, December 5, at 6:30 p.m. we will gather in the Great Room and enjoy the true meaning of the Christmas season by sharing in fellowship, appetizers and singing Christmas carols. This is different than Advent by Candlelight and Ladies Advent Evening in that you do not need to hostess a table or be invited by a table hostess. THIS is your invitation! Candlelight and Carols December 5, :30 p.m. After we enjoy appetizers and fellowship in the Great Room, we will end the evening by heading into the sanctuary to sing Christmas carols. If you would like to help make the Great Room as festive as possible for this special evening, please bring your favorite nativity set. We will set out a variety of nativity sets throughout the room. If you d like to bring in your favorite set, please indicate that on the sign-up sheet so that we make enough room on the display tables. Also, please arrive by 6:00 p.m. that evening so we can set them up. Gentlemen, don t feel left out! We could use your help with set up, serving and clean up! Contact Bob Snyder at if you would like to help serve. As a part of the evening, we are also taking a collection for Bethany Christian Services Foster Care clients (in conjunction with the Holy Cross December Be the Church project). You can either bring a cash donation, or donations in the form of Target, Meijer, Walmart or restaurant gift cards. They will be used by the foster families to purchase appropriate formula, diapers, clothing and toys. Restaurant cards will be used to allow the foster families to go out together for a meal. To sign up for this event, there is a sign-up sheet on the Welcome Center desk or Susan Muhl at Deadline to sign up is Thursday, November 30. Worship Paul Groth, Worship Director Hymn of the Month December s HOM is #352 in our hymnal, Let the Earth Now Praise the Lord. The tune is familiar and has been sung many times during this season of Advent and Christmas, but the lyrics haven t always been used for both the Advent season and the festival of Christmas. In various past hymnals, this song has been listed as a Christmas hymn, but in our present book, it is categorized as an Advent hymn. For our intentions this month, this hymn welcomes us into Advent and celebrates not only the reason for the Christmas season but beyond as well. The six stanzas found in our present hymnal take us from the foretelling of the coming of the Savior in Bethlehem to His second coming as He returns to claim His children and to live in heaven with Him eternally. Lessons and Carols Our annual service of Lessons and Carols will take place on Sunday, December 10, at both the 8:30 and 10:45 a.m. services. It will feature choir selections and familiar carols based on scripture lessons which encompass the foretelling of the Savior s coming to the realization of the His birth. The Holy Cross Orchestra and Bell Choir will participate as well. Please note the date, plan to attend and invite family and friends to join you as we use both scripture and song to prepare our hearts to receive the Savior again this Christmas.

3 Holy Cross Orchestra The Holy Cross Orchestra is preparing to enrich our worship on December 10 for our Lessons and Carols services. Our remaining two rehearsals will be held on Sunday, December 3, at 10:00 a.m. in Room 109, and on Saturday, December 9, at 1:30 p.m. in our Worship Center. If you are an experienced instrumentalist and wish to be involved, there is still time to do so. Please attend the aforementioned rehearsal dates or contact Paul Groth at for more details.
