Poinsettias in Advent

Advent will be enhanced by poinsettias and greens. To dedicate a plant in memory/honor of loved one(s), send a check by mail, offering plate, or online (under "Chanel Flowers"). $20 (suggested) for each citation to be included in the December 19 bulletin. Then, email your name, name(s) of your loved one, relationship (e.g., uncle, niece, etc.). Deadline is December 13. Deacons will deliver poinsettias to homebound members before Christmas. If you wish to keep your plant, email the Worship Committee.

Virtual Mission Fair & Alternative Gifts

Look for the "Mission Corner" in Fellowship Hall on November 28 at the Advent Event. The VIRTUAL Mission Fair & Alternative Gift Market is under way and ends December 10. Missions help kids with: coats, food, books and tutoring.
