Adult Advent Christian Education
As you may have noticed last week, in the fellowship hall there are big coloring posters! Each week during Advent you have the opportunity to color the classic nativity scene, with some reflection questions to discuss and meditate on for devotion. It’s not possible to be bad at coloring, so please take a few minutes to be part of this church-wide project, and look for it to be displayed in some fashion when it is complete!

Christmas Pageant Tonight!
Tonight at 5:00 pm, our church, in collaboration with Acting Out Kids (AOK), will present “The Legend of the Poinsettia” under the direction of Mary Ann Fischer! After the pageant we will have a potluck. Don’t miss it!

Offering Envelopes
If you haven’t already picked up your new box of envelopes, please look on the table in the narthex. This box is for an 18-month period beginning on January 1, 2020, and running until June 30, 2021. This is a one-time box of this size. On July 1, 2021, we will revert back to a 12-month box that will coincide with our contribution year and fiscal calendar. If you have any questions, please contact the office.

Thank You for your Generous TPC Pantry Donations
The TPC Pantry Mission donations have been “over the top” the last couple of months. Warm socks, personal grooming products for the Holidays, and staple food items have overflowed the narthex basket. Please know that your donations are welcomed and appreciated!

Bring Him a Gift items due Today!
We will be assisting three Troy families for Christmas. Troy People Concerned provided us with a list of items the families requested. All gifts are due back today. It is important to attach the gift tag from the board to your wrapped gift so we know who the gift goes to. Please also indicate the dollar value of the gift on the tag as we will need the value for reporting to Presbytery. If you would like to contribute money, the Deacons can do the shopping for you (see Louise Glazier or Joyce Peterson).

Christmas Eve Candlelight Service
Please join Pastor Jasmine for our annual Christmas Eve service on Tuesday, December 24th at 5:00 p.m.
