Announcements: December 17, 2017


If you selected a Gift Tag from the Giving Tree, the gift you purchased is to be dropped off immediately after service today, downstairs in the Homework Room. The gift should be unwrapped and the tag you picked from the tree should be turned in with it. When you get to the Homework Room, be sure to see a representative. Please don’t leave your gift unattended at the Info Table or in the Homework Room. Thank you all for participating!!


Come show off your wrapping skills and celebrate Christmas with the Giving Ministry on this coming Friday, December 22nd in the Library at RDS. The festivities will begin at 7pm and there will be food & music to motivate your efforts. If your wrapping skills aren’t the best, but you still want to help, you can sign up to assist with food shopping and delivery on this coming Saturday, December 23rd. Go to the info table after service for more information and to sign up.


If you participated in any way in our 1st Fridays outreach, we’d like to hear from you. A debrief for this event is being held today, 20 minutes after service ends. So, pick up your children from the Children’s Ministry, turn in your Giving Tree gift, and meet us in the Sanctuary. We look forward to your input.


Heirs Together, our ministry to married couples normally meets on the 4th Sunday of each month. In consideration of family Christmas celebrations, we will not hold our regularly scheduled meeting next week. Please make a note of it and enjoy celebrating Christ’s birth with your family! We’ll see you the 4th Sunday in January.


As you are considering your New Year’s Eve plans, save the date so you may celebrate with Berith! On Sunday, December 31st, we will meet for service at 10:00 a.m. as usual. Then we’ll get together for a movie at a local theater later that day. We’re working out some details and need to know if you’d join us for the movie. Let us know by stopping by the Info Table after service.
