THE CHRISTMAS EVE CANDLELIGHT SERVICE will be Monday the 24th at 7:00 p.m. We will celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus. Come, behold the Savior!

BLESSING BOX As a church family, we have been blessed by Pastor Allan & Kathi Oman. A wrapped card box has been placed in the Narthex for you to share your Christmas wishes, cards &/or gift with them. The box will be given to them at our Dec 30th service.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS TO NEW BEGINNINGS LUTHERAN CHURCH. The end of the calendar year will be Dec. 31. Please have your financial contributions given by that day so that the financial records for 2018 can be completed. Also, please submit all forms and bills for reimbursement by December 31. And, feel free to use the envelopes in the pew racks for your offerings. If you give cash, and would like a record for taxes, please fill out the contact information on the envelope. The Wednesday Advent worship offering has been designated for the Mahomet Helping Hands and the North American Lutheran Seminary.

READINGS AND CAROLS Sunday, December 30, will be the service of Readings and Carols, a wonderful service that goes through Old Testament prophecies of Jesus’ coming, through His birth; and Christmas Carols that correspond with the readings. We need readers for that service. Come, listen, sing and worship the Lord!
