Can you believe it’s nearly the Holiday Season in 2022? While we’re not ready to jump on the Christmas Holiday Season yet, we are getting ready. Of course Walmart’s been celebrating it for a month!
We look forward to the holiday as we see Thanksgiving just weeks away which then gives way to thinking about the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering and emphasis on International Missions. Finally we will see the decorations go up and start to think about Christmas and the Advent season.
Thanksgiving Season Holiday Celebration
For us, Thanksgiving Season begins Sunday, November 6 with The Lord’s Supper! During the morning worship we will continue look at the book of Hebrews, worship through song, and at the end of the service celebrate the Lord’s Supper. The Communion meal is a symbolic meal that tells us we are one with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. That brings us together as we enjoy our fellowship together and with Jesus. It’s our way of saying Thanks!
Daylight Savings Time Ends
Remember to set your clocks back one hour and gain an extra hour of sleep. Daylight Savings Time ends overnight Saturday and into Sunday, November 6th.
Christmas Calendar Full for Holiday Celebration
We have a lot of fun and meaningful plans for our Holiday Celebration, as we honor Jesus Christ’s birth and thank God for all he’s done for us. That moves us into the new year, 2023.
