I just can’t even wrap my head around the fact that Christmas is in just two weeks!  Are you ready?  I’m not asking if you have all your shopping done or Christmas cards addressed, but if YOU are ready for the Christ child to enter your life once again.  There is a difference. I hope Advent is playing out in your heart in a joyous and meaningful way.

Today is the LIVE NATIVITY from 4 to 5:30.  This event is a memory maker.  See the animals, pat the calf, join in the carols and praise the new born baby!  We do need some help.  PLEASE, if you’re able and can help lift the stable out onto the grass come by the church at 3 p.m. We have a few folks already but it’s heavy and need a few more.  Many hands make light work!!!!  And if you’ve always wanted to be an angel or a magi you can pick out your costume (although that’s not necessary so don’t stay away because of the possibility of being drafted).  Thank you!!

And I know you must have December 18 at 7 on your calendar for the glorious Christmas Concert.  I LOVE that.  AND

December 21, the shortest night of the year is the Blue Christmas service at 7 p.m. for those who have trouble getting through the holidays.  This service truly reminds us of the strength this babe can give us without the secular hoopla of the season getting in the way.  We celebrate the returning light as the day’s just get longer from there

May the Bethlehem child bring you joy.  See you tomorrow.
