2 ADVENT SERVANT EVENTS 2017 At each of our Advent Midweek Celebrations we will spend a half an hour assembling special gifts for those less fortunate than ourselves. Wednesday, December 20 we will be collecting Men s and Women s warm socks which will be distributed through agencies such as Ruth and Naomi s & Cyrus Center. Please bring heavy, wool-type socks as they are more absorbent in nasty weather. Blessed to Serve Our Church Community Coming Events & Notices IMPORTANT! VOTERS MEETING TODAY! There will be a Voters Meeting TODAY, Sunday, December 17 th following the 2 nd Worship Service.

5 God Planned for Us As we approach Christmas, many of us will be asked, What do you want for Christmas? We, in turn, should be thinking about what we're giving to others. Some joke that that's what December 24th is for. Unfortunately, some don t plan ahead in regard to their gift-giving. As a result, when they re ready to go shopping, they don t have enough money put aside to buy the gifts they want to give. Because of poor planning, they may give inappropriate gifts. God didn't give His leftovers nor did He have a haphazard plan. His gift to us was in the Person of His Son, Jesus. He was in on the plan from the beginning, and with joy He came to earth to be our Savior. God wasn't caught short of funds; He gave His Son Who gave His life for you. What gift could be more appropriate? Christ is exactly what each of us needs! Prayer: Lord, open my eyes and heart so that I can truly appreciate the gift of Your Son Jesus. Thank You for including me in Your plans. In Your name I pray. Amen Blessings on your stewardship journey! 5
