Congratulations and Welcome to the newest members of

so thankful for your willingness to commit yourself to this
church family, and weare looking forward to how we can
mutually pray for and help each other become more like Jesus.

F. Y. I. – Due to lack of cooks, there will be no Men’s Food
Feed and Bible Study until January. See you then.

Just two more weeks—it’s hard to wait
We check the closets, investigate,
Look under beds and everywhere
To see what may be hiding there.
We think of Christmases past and then
We start to look all over again.
What we’re looking for we do not know
It’s a mystery, we look and so
It comes to mind that what we’re looking for
Is not just things, but something more
Why are we keeping this holiday?
What does it really mean, you say ?
It’s a remembrance, don’t you see?
Of when God’s Son came to earth as a small baby
The One who made us was the Holy Child
The righteous one, the undefiled
Our Savior, sustainer, sinless, glorified,
Who came as a baby but also our guide
We thank you for your love and care
That goes with us everywhere.
We thank you for your birth and death
And resurrection too
You gave us everything we need
To draw close to You.
And that is why we keep this day
We love you Lord. Hip, hip, hooray!

Thought for the Week:
“You might say that the modern church is much like a FROZEN WATERFALL. It has all the form and shape of its early days, but none of the movement! Oh, that the fire of the Holy Spirit would come upon our churches.”

PAEFC: David and Anita, Andy and Val, and Alex!! We are so thankful for your willingness to commit yourself to this church

Special thanks to all of those who did such a nice job of decorating
the church for this year’s celebration of the birth of Jesus! Appre-
ciate all your efforts. Looks beautiful.

It’s time for Advent season again,
A time of year, a season when
We think of just what God has given
And how we find our way to heaven.
Advent season, what does it mean?
Why we know that it means the coming.
And just what coming can it be?
How does it apply to you and me?
The most important coming in history,
The coming of the one who set us free
From the consequences of our sin
And filled us full of hope again
The only one who lived on earth
Who had the value, had the worth
To carry the sin of all the ages
As we are told by the holy pages
And break us free from Satan’s power,
What a glorious day, what an amazing hour
When the mighty Prince of Peace was born
When He graced a stable, old and worn
With His presence, Let us give Him laud.
The one and only Son of God.
