ADVENT – Advent is a time of awaiting Jesus coming into our world. As Christians, we want to be ACTIVELY WAITING, to be fully present in the moment. We know God is always working in our world to bring peace to his people. May we all actively await Jesus in this Advent season and the year to come!
NEW DIRECTORY – We planto have a new pictorial directory out in a few weeks. This is one of the ways we use to help people to connect with each other at Celebration. Please contact Lynn Pluger or Pastor Matt to update your information.
ADOPT-A-PERSON – This year we are adopting individuals who have no family or family support: 5 students from a nearby Christian college and 4 homebound seniors. The tags on our Giving Tree list some of their needs and also gift ideas. Please wrap the gift and place the name tag on top. We would like to have all the gifts at church by December 17.
