Mary Went In Haste

Dear Friends in Christ,

Is much of your life spent "in haste?" Come this Sunday to be filled with God's word and His sacrament of Holy Communion. And reflect with us on what it meant that Mary went in haste to see her cousin, Elizabeth.

Lots coming up:
1. Christina's education in Pakistan: $350 has been raised for Christina and we only need $250 more to cover her 2010 education expenses .. please indicate on the memo line that the check is for Christina.
2. Poinsettias: We will be buying poinsettias with the funds that are donated .. the deadline to order is Sunday December 20 .. please indicate on the memo line that the check is for flowers, and also let me know "in memory of/thanksgiving for" message. I will be able to give you names and messages after the service on December 20.
3. Christmas Decorating this Sunday: We will be decorating the church and Christmas tree after the service on Sunday December 20, and will appreciate everyone's assistance.

4. Supper before Christmas Eve service: Lou Brown has graciously offered to host a Christmas Eve tamale supper, for one and all. It will begin at 5:30pm on Dec. 24 in the fellowship hall. Sign up this Sunday, to let her know you will attend.

5. Our Christmas Eve Eucharist service begins at 7:00pm on Thursday, Dec. 24. There will be solo music by a UT student, Ashley Tapia, preceding the service, so come a little early to prepare spiritually for the service, and hear some beautiful singing.

Yours in Christ,
