Thanksgiving into Christmas ...

As usual, our church participated in Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child shoebox ministry this year. We gathered boxes for weeks, culminating in a last-minute box-assembling on the evening of our usual Saturday fellowship dinner in November.

We donated thirty-three boxes this year!
Also in November, Pastor Adam gave a beekeeping presentation at the Oriental Lunch-and-Learn.
The program was quite well-attended and well-received. 
There's good interest in beekeeping these days.
On Thanksgiving Day our church had its usual Thanksgiving dinner for anyone who wants to come. We had a great group of 18 -- perfect!
The table was loaded with food, and we barely made a dent in the desserts.

We ranged in age from four to ninety-eight.
Pastor Adam asked each person what they were most thankful for. Many mentioned family and friends, but also jobs and God's work in their lives.
Our Christmas Lessons and Carols Service will be on Sunday evening, December 20th, at 6:00. Please plan to attend and enjoy the singing of carols, reading of Christmas passages, and some special music. Refreshments are served afterward.
