Next week, November 29 is the first Sunday in Advent, as well as the Sunday following Thanksgiving. We’re having an Advent Workshop during Sunday School that day for all ages, with adults and young people together. Bring your visiting relatives with you for Advent wreath making, learning about the new Advent Wheel, viewing the speed-sketch style video on Advent, and other activities. We’ll begin all together in the Fellowship Hall with hot chocolate, coffee, or tea, and a puppet show!
Rehearsals are underway for our youth Christmas musical, Camel Lot. Youth from 2nd through 7th grades are welcome to participate. Rehearsals will be each Sunday afternoon from 3:30 to 6:00 p.m. until the production on Sunday, December 13, during the Sunday School hour. For more information, contact Julie Henry at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CPC Women, please join Presbyterian Women for our Christmas dinner on Tuesday, December 1 in the Fellowship Hall. We will eat at 6:00 p.m.; please bring a side dish to share. Afterwards we will wrap presents for Carying Place families.
We are now in the top 5% of PCUSA sales and our proceeds will support the Guatemala mission. Find out more about what we do and how you can order.
It’s time to register to attend the CPC Family Retreat next April! Caraway Camp and Conference Center has new policies this year which require that complete registrations (numbers and payment) be in by January 10. That date will be here before we expect it. The first deposit of 50% of the total is due December 6, so stop by the registration table in the Narthex today to begin.
Make plans now to usher in the Advent season with a “Hanging of the Green” program on Saturday evening, December 5, 6:30-8:30 pm. We hope you can join us for all or part of the evening – to prepare yourself and the church for the Advent season. Look for event details and sign-ups in the narthex, or contact Jane Dunbar at email@example.com. With a mix of activities, worship, music, and fellowship, there’s something for all ages and interests!
