Hey all! We are collecting gifts & funds for our Christmas project of giving gifts to Newberry Co DSS foster children. We are focusing on older kids and will prepare gifts bags for 15-20 children. Nance is the contact person. As usual we can use anything & everything you would like to contribute. Anything you give will find a good home! Backpacks are the most needed things in this project; other gifts will go in the gift bags. All gift items need to be new – not used & please do not wrap anything. DSS has to go through everything before it is given to a child. Please bring your contributions of gifts & funds by Dec 3. THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO!!!

This Sunday’s service will focus on gratitude!! And we will also be trimming the Christmas tree this Sunday so it will be ready to put our gifts to the foster children under it prior to delivery to DSS by Dec 15.  

We will be having a Chalica service on December 3. If you still have your Chalica candle holder that Ric & Marla made for last year’s service, please bring it with you. If you need any candles for it, please let Marla know.

Our holiday meal will be the Eatin’ Meetin’ on Dec 3. All goodies are welcomed of course, but Marla will circulate a list to make sure we have a yummy menu!!!

Our guest speaker for the 2nd Sunday in Dec will be Joan Pennington (from Saluda), who presented at Spirituality Group a few months ago.  She will give the message from her faith tradition on the topic of Hanukkah.

Pomaria Community Praise has invited us all to a community covered-dish on Nov 19 at Pomaria-Garmany School at 5pm. They will also be collecting non-perishable food items for the Pomaria Community Food Bank.

We will be having a Christmas Eve service at 11:00am on Dec 24 (the 4th Sunday) and will not have a service on Dec 31 (the 5th Sunday).

HAPPY HOLIDAYS – as Tiny Tim says, “God Bless Us Everyone!!!” ❤❤❤
