 Community Christmas dinner — Christmas Day

~Our church is responsible for 12 large pans of dressing and 12 large pans of mashed potatoes. If you will help with this, see Sherri Lowery. (Several bags of stuffing mix have been donated and are in our foyer. If you would like to use this to make your dressing, take as much as you need)

~Turkey and ham donations need to be taken to Couch’s BBQ by December 20

~If you know of anyone who needs a meal delivered, call Missy Moody, 870-650-1053 or Lindsay Miller, 870-483-3183

Christmas is on Sunday this year which always presents a challenge for our church because we are so involved in the community dinner.  Two things our church needs to do Christmas day—Worship Jesus and Serve Jesus.

Worship Jesus: We will have one worship service at 9:00am on Christmas day. “Ironic that some Christians will use the birth of Jesus as an    excuse to skip church.”

Serve Jesus: If you are helping with the community Christmas dinner by preparing/serving food, delivery, etc. try to be at the Sports Complex on Pecan Grove Rd by around 10:00. We will start serving food at 11:00.

The poinsettias on our sanctuary stage were given in memory of: Carlton Ballard, Rubin Barnes, Arlene Blasingame, Vernon Blasingame, Clarence & Gerry Johnson, Bob & Barbara Mock, Mayo & Helen Reeves, Lynn & Chlora Richardson, Virginia Richardson, John Sadler.

Nursery workers next Sunday: Bailye Moye & DeAnna Ballard
