THANKSGIVING EVE INFORMATION
Thanksgiving Eve Service – This Wednesday, November 22nd, 7pm – CCC is the host church for the Thanksgiving Eve service this year! Please sign up for desserts and set-up or clean-up – we still need about six pies! Click here to sign up.
Thanksgiving Eve Testimonies – Sharing our testimonies is a powerful witness to the work of Christ in our lives. One of our traditions at each year’s Thanksgiving Eve service is telling each other stories of God’s goodness and provision. If you are interested in sharing your story during our service next week, please contact Mike Harvat. Thanks!
Christmas Treats – Order by December 10th – Don’t stress over making your Christmas cookie platters this year! Buy them from the youth group and help our students raise funds for CHIC! The prices are $6 for 1 dozen cookies & treats in a Christmas-themed box, and $12 for 2 dozen cookies & treats beautifully wrapped on a Christmas platter. The treats will be available for pickup on December 17.
CHIC Fundraising Meeting – Today After Worship – Please plan to stick around after worship today for a short CHIC meeting! Lori A will be presenting an opportunity for the youth to raise funds through Top of the Lake coffee roasters. We have lots of coffee drinkers in the congregation and these make great Christmas gifts!
High School Fakesgiving – Tonight, 5-7pm – It’s time for our annual Fakesgiving Dinner! Bring your favorite food (kale, cookies, meatloaf, whatever) for our Fakesgiving potluck and stick around for a night of Thanksgiving-themed fun and games. This will be a great night to bring a friend!
