A CELEBRATION OF THANKSGIVING – WEDNESDAY, NOV. 27TH, 7:00 PM
Please join us on Wednesday, November 27th at 7:00PM at our Colonial Park Campus for a Celebration of Thanksgiving where we will give thanks unto the Lord for all of the blessings that He has given to us individually and as His church. Start your Thanksgiving weekend with praise unto our Lord and Creator of us all.
Christmas music will soon be in the air and that means it is time to decorate the ANGEL Trees. ANGEL (A New Gift Expressing Love) Tree is a ministry which provides Christmas gifts to those that may not otherwise have any. This year, we will again be partnering with the United Methodist Home and providing gifts to children living there temporarily. In addition, we will be aligning with our Clothing Connection and supplying necessary clothing items to our patrons. Trees will be set up @ Colonial Park outside the Worship Center, @ South Hanover and @ Rutherford on November 9th-10th. Please choose an ornament and purchase what is requested on the gift list of the recipient. Please place the items in a gift bag and return them to the church before December 1st. Come join in, spread the word of Christ, and feel the Holy Spirit bring joy to those less fortunate on Christmas Day. Any questions can be directed to Keri or Lisa Tkatch at 671-5674.
