BULLETIN FOLDERS The schedule for those who volunteer to fold bulletins is being prepared for 2016. If there are any changes, please let Lynn in the office know. If you are interested in joining the bulletin folders, you can also call Lynn for further information. It involves about a half hour of time every 6-8 weeks. You can work with a partner or by yourself. The volunteers are greatly appreciated! Thanks to those who already help out, and to anyone who might be interested, please check into it.

SAY CHEESE, PLEASE! We Want Your Picture! In case you haven’t noticed, it’s been a long time since we’ve had a church Pictorial Directory, and we are going to remedy that!! In fact, we plan on taking your picture ourselves and producing an online directory, as well as a printed one. All that WE NEED YOU TO DO IS GET YOUR PICTURE TAKEN. Several committee members will be in the Narthex (Lobby) after church on Dec. 20. Please give us 10 or 15 minutes of your time. We promise to be very quick. We will let you see the photo for your approval. We look forward to your co-operation. Pictorial Directory Committee, Gretchen Orendi (gretchenorendi@comcast.net) & Martha Babbitt(mhbabbitt@yahoo.com) – co-chairwomen

Parking for Christmas Eve 6:30pm Service:
In addition to the parking lots on our church grounds, there are several lots very close by. The lot behind the Sunoco gas station and it’s an easy walk around the back side of Academy of Dance studio & Corner’s beer distributor to the front doors of the church.  For those who arrive early and or for those who are willing and able to walk 50 – 100 yards, please consider parking in these areas to minimize congestion and to free up spaces for visitors, our senior members and those with infants. Thank you! —pastor
