Many people say this is the most beautiful service in the church all year. We invite you to come and worship the Lord of light.
Next Sabbath is Christmas Eve.
Last week at the Congregational Meeting, we passed a budget for 2007. We also elected church officers (Jeff Rossy, Chairman; Ronald Ruth, Vice-Chairman; Richard Sherer, Treasurer). We elected deacons of 2007 (Frances Nivens, Newton Wells, Martin Grant, Andrew Rollins, Gail Atchley, and Mark Love).
We ask your prayers and support for these officers and deacons and for this church in 2007. Please note: Deacons will be ordained and installed on January 14.
Arnold Yarborough fell and broke a bone in his leg. Please remember Arnold and all our sick and shut-ins in your prayers.
If you have questions or comments, email Tony Grant
