Some of you like to give extra offerings at the end of the year in order to maximize your tax deductions. If you would want to take advantage of this tax deduction, we have some Year end projects that we would suggest you consider giving toward. You can mark your check with “Year End Giving”. These need to be in the offering by December 24th in order to be counted for this year’s contributions. Thank you for your continued support of God’s work through our church.
If you would like to contribute to the Pastor’s Christmas gift, please use the special envelopes outside the sanctuary doors and make the check payable to the church. You may also give online. This can be put in the regular offering by Dec 24th. We want to show our appreciation to our pastors and their families and wish them a very Merry Christmas!
We have adopted the Pittsburg Middle School and they are needing good quality, easy to wash new shoes and packages of socks. This year is a little different because the school has asked us for specific size shoes.
If you would like to bless a child with a new pair of shoes, please take an ornament from the tree in the lobby with the size needed. The packages of socks and shoes can be dropped off under the tree by December 31st.
Sunday morning services on Christmas Eve will be at 8:30am and 10:00am. We will not have a 11:30am service.
Children’s Church will be available during both services. Pastor Thomas will host a pajama party so children are invited to attend in their Christmas jammies.
We are kicking off a new ministry to help stock the blessing boxes around town, which is a great way to make a difference in our community. You can drop off items in the lobby at anytime. Once a week the donations will be picked up and distributed to the boxes.
We don’t want to put glass items or expired items in the blessing boxes.
