December 4 & 7: From Heaven Above – The Gift of Love
This second Sunday in Advent is based on John 3:13-17. The Gift of Love looks at how the steadfast love of God is revealed in the gift of his Son; and how we, as the redeemed people of God, have the privilege of sharing God’s love with others. Preacher: Pastor Dennis
December 4th – Special Congregational Meeting
All active confirmed members of Resurrection are encouraged to attend this congregational meeting today at 12:15 in the worship room. Come and hear about the work of the Long Range Planning Team over the last several months and their proposal to hire two consulting firms – Vernon Research Group and Kairos Associates – to lead us in a strategic planning process in 2017. In order to move forward, we need your input and approval. There will be a written ballot vote on the proposal to hire the two firms after the presentation is made and discussion held on the proposal.
Loving Generously stewardship campaign
