Plans are underway for our Midweek Worship for the Wednesdays of Advent (Dec. 7, 14 & 21.) These evening worship opportunities provide a way for us to join together as a community to prepare our hearts to hear the good news of Jesus’ birth. We invite you to join with us on these four Wednesdays—to intentionally remove yourself from the overwhelming urge to get caught up in Holiday preparations and the busy-ness of the commercial season of Christmas, and to immerse yourself in the peace of confident anticipation and joyful expectation.

Decorating Opportunities
Saturday, December 3, 9:00 am
The Building and Property Committee has made plans to bring the evergreen into the building on December 3rd. Please come pitch in to move trees and decorate accordingly during that morning. Once again during the evening the Bereaved Parents of Madison will hold their annual remembrance service. We’ll need many hands to make the building ready for the special events of the season! As the seasons change, there are many opportunities to help with decorations in the church and worship spaces. If you are interested, please contact Rebecca at

Noisy Offering

On De-cember 11, Pastor Larry Henning will share pictures and sto-ries from his recent trip to Palestine. Please come, and add your voice and your faith perspective to the conversations!

Poinsettia Orders by December 7
Even though it doesn’t feel very wintry, it’s time to order Poinsettias to decorate the sanctuary for Christmas. You can order red, white, or pink plants — each plant costs $12. Order forms are available in Jubilee and Koinonia.

Servers Needed for Christmas
If you are willing to help out with worship on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, we are in need of a lector for the 10:30 p.m. Christmas Eve service and an Assisting Minister at the 4:00 service on Christmas Eve. We also need a deacon and a fellowship host for the 9:00 Christmas morning service. If you could help with any of these needs, please let Roxanne know as soon as possible. Thank you!
