Please plan to come and witness the beauty of “Nativity: A Traditional Story of the Birth of Jesus Christ” written by Rev. Dale L. Hopely, Jr., and performed by the children on Sunday, December 23, at 10:45 a.m. in Souers Hall.
Children in Church
Children are invited to join their families in church on Sunday, December 30, to give our hard working Sunday School teachers a day off after serving our kids through the Advent season. Child care will still be available for our littlest ones in the Nursery on the 30th. Sunday School classes will resume on January 6.
New Year’s Youth Celebration
New Year’s youth celebration on Sunday, January 6, 2019! We will have inflatables and fun! Also, beginning January 6, the youth groups will be meeting at new times: Ignite (6-8) from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m.; Pulse (9-12) from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Both groups will meet in the Watt House. All 6th-12th graders are invited!
In order for your offerings to be reflected on your 2018 giving statement, all contributions must be in the church office no later than Sunday, December 30.
Interim Children’s Ministry Director
Kristin McNamara is now serving as our Interim Children’s Ministry Director. In this role, Kristin will be coordinating Sunday School teachers, setting up classrooms, and facilitating other children’s ministries. We welcome Kristin as she serves in this capacity during this time of pastoral transition.
Traditionally the church has been adorned by luminarias on Christmas Eve. If you would like to participate in this beautiful ministry to our community, please sign-up in the breezeway or contact the church office at (623) 935-3411.
Pastoral Search Committee
With the recent resignation of Pastor Dale, a Pastoral Search Committee was appointed and has begun their work. They have advertised in various publications and websites and have already received several applications and resumes. The committee will continue the review process over the next several weeks. Once they have a recommendation, that recommendation will be forwarded to the Board of Directors, and if they approve the recommended pastor, the name will be presented to the congregation in a special meeting.
The new senior pastor will be confirmed with the approval of two-thirds of the congregation in attendance at the congregational meeting. If you have comments or questions, feel free to contact any of the committee members. They are Travis Allen, chairman; Danelle Farris; Chris Martin; Virgil Grumbling; Suzanne Boyer; Rob Gimbl; and Manda Gempler.
As we are approaching the end of 2018, we are requesting your participation in the 2019 planned giving, which has a significant impact on our ability to plan for and live out our church’s mission. Our operating budget is determined by the amount pledged as of December 31, 2018. Many of you have submitted your pledge cards – thank you. For those who have not yet fulfilled your financial pledge for 2019, and wish to, please remember to take the opportunity to do so before the end of the year. The timing really does matter and it is very important to the financial health of the church.
