Thanks to everyone who brought food and helped pack the 40 Hy-Vee Thanksgiving baskets on Celebration Sunday. They were delivered on Monday to Matthew 25, Mission of Hope, and Marion Cares for families in Marion and Cedar Rapids.
Giving Tree – Please consider supporting six Marion Independent families this Christmas by selecting a gift-tag from the giving tree in the gathering space. Wrapped gifts need to be returned by Sunday, December 11. Thank you for your love and support for this annual project. Direct questions to Madonna Putnam.
Christmas Decorating will take place on Sunday, December 4 after the special congregational meeting. We will fortify ourselves with pizza at noon and then start working to make this church beautiful to celebrate our Savior’s birth! Please let Marcia know how many of your family will be attending so she can order enough pizza.
Christmas Eve Services will be at 1:00, 3:00, 5:00, and 7:00. If you can help with any of the following, please let Marcia know: PowerPoint, Greeting, Ushering, Communion Serving, Reading, Communion set-up, and Acolyte.
Christmas Day & New Years Day services will be at 9:30 am. If you will be attending either of these services and can help in worship, please let Marcia know. We especially need people to set up Communion and to run PowerPoint.
