CHLC family and friends!
a blessed St. Nicholas Day to you all! Today
is the commemoration day for St. Nicholas of
Myra, a real-life Christian Bishop from the
third century who has come to represent anyone
who defends children and others who are vulnerable
coming Sunday, December 9, is the second Sunday
of Advent. We will meet up with John the Baptist
as he breaks into the scene with a baptism for
the repentance of sins, calling us to prepare
the way of the Lord.
Saturday at 10:00 a.m. a group of people will
take door hangers into our neighborhood which
invite people to let us be their church home
for the holidays. It will not involve knocking
on doors, so anyone who would like to join is
invited, even if you are a little shy! Coffee
will be provided.
Tuesday evening a crew will bring the tree and
other decorations up from the basement so that
on Wednesday, December 12 we can decorate the
sanctuary in time for the Children's program
the following Sunday. If you are available to
help that Wednesday at 6:00, we will have pizza
and other refreshments to share as we prepare
the worship space for our Christmas celebrations.
Come on out and join us!
continue to collect hats and gloves on the tree
in the parlor, gift cards for Oesterlen, and
offering money for piglets through the ELCA
Global Barnyard/Good Gifts program. We are also
getting ready for the annual Cookie Project
- please consider baking and donating cookies
to be delivered to our homebound members. Also
consider signing up to deliver some goodies
to one or two of these folks. The sign-up is
on the bulletin board in the narthex, and we
will send the goodies out Sunday, December 16
after the Christmas Program.
will see you in worship!
