POINSETTIAS 2018
Once again, this year the Sanctuary decorations will include poinsettias. They will be in the sanctuary from Sunday, December 16 through 24. You may take your plant after our Christmas Eve service or the following Sunday.
The plants will be labeled with YOUR name to make it easier for you to pick-up at the end of service on Christmas Eve.
As in the past, you may take your plant or allow the Deacons to share it with a homebound member.
Orders must be in the office by Tuesday, December 11. The cost is $15.00 per plant.
Please make check payable to First Presbyterian Church, earmarked "Poinsettias."

WORSHIP ASSISTANTS IN ADVENT

The Season of Advent will include additional candles and readings during the four Sunday mornings before Christmas Eve, and of course more of the same during the Christmas Eve worship service. Please consider participating in this, either as an individual or as a family. (Actually, a couple of friends could join together to light and read.) It would be helpful if I would know the services are covered well before Advent. Please decide to do this and let me know.
Thanks,
Pastor Leonard
