WELCOME ALL  VISITORS  We are pleased you have joined us today.  Please sign our guest book and make yourself known.  If you are traveling, we pray that you will have safe travel back home.

NAME TAGS: If you would like one, please see Carol Zager at the Organ.  These tags are free and allow us to remember each other's names; BUT, we need to wear them so that others will know who we are!

THANK YOU: Thanks to Steven Furlow and his crew for creating a Fire Pit and walkway on the west side of the building. This will be used for various activities and fellowship. Thank you Steve.

ADVENT FUN ACTIVITIES: Today after the 10:30 service, there will be a short demonstration of how to make ornaments which will be seen around the church this Advent and three simple gifts anyone can make. Join Kathy Atwood in the Parish Hall following the service for this time of activity and fun. This is not JUST for children, all are invited.

ADVENT OUTREACH PROJECT: Every Advent for many years we have gathered toys and gifts (unwrapped) for the youth at Inglesia San Juan in Fort Worth. We are collecting again this year and all gifts may be dropped in the outer office area to be delivered the week before Christmas.

PRAYERS FOR OUR BISHOP – CURRENT & FUTURE: Please remember in your prayers, Bishop Iker as he continues his treatments for cancer; and, please pray for the next bishop of this diocese and the process to discern him. For information about prayer resources, please see the Diocesan website at

ANNUAL PARISH MEETING: Our Annual Parish Meeting is scheduled for Sunday, January 20th at 9:30 am. We will be electing two members for the Vestry and two delegates for Diocesan Convention.
