Children’s Christmas Service Setup – Volunteers Needed
Help is needed to set-up and take down chairs in the gym for our Children’s Christmas Service. Please consider helping set-up the evening of the 18th, after the midweek advent service; or helping to take down on Sunday, the 22nd after the second service. Sign up to help here.
Now through December 16, we will be placing a Scrip order every week on Monday. The Scrip program is open to everyone! Whether you are a regular user, an occasional purchaser, or just someone who wants to buy a gift card, the Scrip program, and its hundreds of retailer options, has something for everyone. You can even pay off a balance on a Kohl’s charge card with Scrip! Scrip gift cards are just like the gift cards you would purchase at any store but a portion of your purchase is returned to Christ the Lord to benefit our congregation’s youth programs. For more information on what’s available or if you need help placing an order, please contact our Coordinator, at or stop by the reception desk between services any Sunday morning. Thank you for your support of our program!
2019 Financial Update – End of Year Givings
As we have regularly mentioned in the past years, we often receive “two or more months worth” of offerings during December as members assess their financial situation and determine where they are at in their offering plans for the year. Some are also able to factor in end of the year income and bonuses. We emphasize that our “first fruit offerings” take place every week and every month of the year, but we also recognize that the final month gives us the opportunity to take time to reflect on our response – and also to prepare for the year ahead. We are very grateful for the generous offerings our members provide. God be with you as you make your end of the year gifts for our gospel ministry at Christ the Lord and beyond in our shared ministries.
- In order for offerings to be credited to your 2019 records for tax purposes, they must be received by December 31, 2019.
- Your 2020 offering envelopes should not be used until January 1, 2020 to ensure proper recording. Your 2020 offering envelopes will be distributed in early or mid-December.
- While the Faith, Family, Future capital campaign offerings are not referred to above, the same principles apply for when gifts are credited. Thank you to all who are taking part in this effort.
Midweek Avent Meals – Volunteers & Desserts Needed
Our midweek Advent worship services will start December 4, 2019. There will be two services—4:30 and 7:00pm, with a fellowship supper each week between services at 5:30pm. We are in need of volunteers to help set up, serve, and clean-up for each meal, as well as volunteers to bring desserts to share. If you can help in this way, please sign up here. Your time is greatly appreciated!
