Weekly Update
December 1, 2021

Greetings, CHLC family and friends,

This coming Sunday, December 5, is the Second Sunday of Advent. We will be introduced to John the Baptist, the voice of oce crying out in the wilderness, Prepare the Way of the Lord!! We will light two candles on our Advent Wreath and sing verses three and four of, "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel."

State Representative David Leland will be with us this Sunday to present us with a resolution that he created and passed in the Ohio House of Representatives, honoring Clinton Heights on the occasion of our 100th Anniversary. It will be a privilege to welcome Representative Leland to our gathering!

Also this Sunday after worship the Women of the ELCA will have their December gathering which will include lunch, meeting, Advent traditions, carols and activities. All women are invited to join after worship

We continue to collect socks on the sock tree in the vestibule and monetary donations for the Oesterlen Life Skills Center renovation. We are also collecting cookies to take to some of our special church family members in their homes on December 12. If you can donate two dozen cookies or deliver them on the week of the 12th, please sign up in the lobby or let me know.

You may also pick up your 2022 Offering Envelopes in the lobby through the end of the year.

At our recent congregational meeting we approved the 2022 Budget and the Av Upgrade proposal Elspeth Koerner agreed to serve a three year term on church council, and since that meeting Mitchell Hester has also agreed to serve. We have two empty seats and would welcome anyone who feels called to this position of leadership in the congregation.

There is a Bellringer newsletter for December attached to this email in addition to the bulletin for this Sunday's worship service.

I will see you in worship!
