On December 3, classes for Children and Youth, SALT, and the Men's Bible Study will resume. In addition, an Adult Advent study will begin! We will meet in Room 214 at 9:30 a.m. with a focus on preparing our hearts for Christmas. Devotional readings with accompanying music tracks by Andrew Peterson will allow a respite from the hurried, pressured preparations that sometimes overtake our lives in the busy holiday season.
If you are interested in purchasing a devotional book to accompany this series, please contact Linda Black by November 28th. The cost of each book, Behold the Lamb of God by Russ Ramsey, is $12.
For those with ebook readers, this book can be download directly from Amazon for $5.99.
NOTE: Sunday School classes will not meet on December 24th or 31st.
Mark your calendars for the annual Christmas celebration on Sunday, December 17th.
