Announcements — December 13, 2020

† IN OUR PRAYERS  Stephen Ministry and their care receivers.

† MIDWEEK ADVENT SERVICES are at 11:00 am and 7:00 pm each Wednesday during Advent. Please join us!

† SERVICE OPTIONS  We are offering a ‘Service of the Word’ on the first and third Sunday’s of the month and a ‘Service of the Sacrament’ on the second  and fourth Sundays.  The next Service of the Word will be at 7:45 am on Sunday, December 20.  Because these are high precaution services we encourage everyone to wear masks and will have minimal singing as we have done with our current Wednesday morning services. 

† NEWS OF A KING’S BIRTH  We are excited to be hosting a Christmas Program watch party on December 20, during the Sunday School hour in the Fellowship Hall.  We are so glad to be able to give the kids an opportunity to observe the product of all their hard work!  The program will also be available for viewing online through the usual formats.

† GSLC YOUTH CHRISTMAS PARTY is today at 4:00 pm in the church Fellowship Hall.  Food, Fellowship, and Fun. Youth in grades 7 – 12 are invited.

† THE ANGEL TREE is up in the narthex.  This year’s ornaments list items for families in our congregation who could use a little help this Christmas.  Please  return your item/items to the tree unwrapped with the tag attached by Sunday, Dec. 20, so that they can be distributed.  The Christian Education Committee is so appreciative of your help with this project!

† 2021 OFFERING ENVELOPES  The 2021 offering envelopes are on the round  table in the narthex.  Please remember to discard your 2020 envelopes and use only the 2021 envelopes beginning on Sunday, January 3.  If you  do not see your name and want envelopes, please contact the church office.  Likewise, if you prefer not to use them and see your name, simply write NO on the label.
