Christmas Extravaganza –
I can’t wait to see you at our Christmas Extravaganza on Saturday evening at 6PM. We had our final planning meeting for the party last night and it’s just going to be fabulous. There will be plenty of really good food, lots of activities, raffles, door prizes, sing-a-longs, a visit from Santa, and so much more. I hope every one of you will come and bring some friends to share this wonderful evening as we enjoy one another’s company. You can still RSVP on the church Facebook page or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. My deep gratitude to the members of the Worship Planning Team for sponsoring this year’s Christmas Extravaganza.
Do you have candelabra that we could borrow for a couple of weeks? We need these for our Christmas Eve/Christmas Day services. If you have one or two that you could loan us, please write to us at email@example.com or bring them to church with you. We promise to take good care of them. Thank you so much.
The Memorial Service for our dearly departed Inez Thames will be held at the church this coming Wednesday at 3:30PM. I hope all of you who can will come to share in this time of remembering and giving thanks for the life of our beloved sister. There will be music, reading, testimonials and a little cookie and punch reception following the service. Plan now to join us if you can.
The entire Holy Cross holiday schedule is published here in The GEM. Look it over and plan to join us as often as you can as we continue our Advent Worship Series, Home for the Holidays. This weekend JOY is our theme. We have an extremely joyful service planned with exciting music, praise and worship and my sermon called, Joyful Homes. Plan now to be here and bring some friends to share in this time of preparation for Christmas.
Have a wonderful weekend. I look forward to seeing you at church and in the community.
