Prayer for Today
Almighty God, You sent Your Son Jesus Christ to be the light of the world. Free us from all that darkens and ensnares us, and bring us to eternal light and joy; through the power of Him Who is alive and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Prayer for our Church family
As we start this day, help us remember that we belong to You, and our desire is to act accordingly. Keep our feet from stumbling and our minds from wandering into distractions that could steal precious time and energy from the most important things You have designed for us. We’re proud to be Your children, Lord. And we’re so grateful that You died for us – rising again on Your own new morning – so that every day could be filled with the wonder of Your love, the freedom of Your Spirit, and the joy of knowing You, in Jesus’ Name we pray. Amen.
For those who wish to pray with someone, a prayer team is available after the Service in the left-hand corner of the Sanctuary. The Prayer Team scheduled for today is: Susan and Don
GIFT SUNDAY – December 8th
I asked God to take away my pain. God said, No. It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.
I asked God to make my handicapped child whole. God said, No. Her spirit is whole, her body is only temporary.
I asked God to grant me patience, God said, No. Patience is a byproduct of tribulations. It isn’t granted, it is earned.
I asked God to give me happiness. God said, No. I give you blessings. Happiness is up to you.
I asked God to spare me pain. God said, No. Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to Me.
I asked God to make my spirit grow. God said, No. You must grow on your own, but I will prune you to make you fruitful.
I asked for all things that I might enjoy life. God said, No. I will give you life so that you may enjoy all things.
I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me. God said… Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.

FAMILY POT LUCK CHRISTMAS DINNER

Please see Debbie Lavallée and let her know if you are coming. If so, advise what dish you are bringing and how many people are coming with you.
Again this year there will be a ‘Free Will Offering’ basket giving an opportunity to donate to World Vision to help the three children and a village that our church sponsors.
We also require people to help set up for the dinner on Friday, December 6th. The moving of chairs, arranging of the tables, setting of the tables, organizing the music, etc. are some of the jobs that need to be done. If you are able to volunteer your service, please speak to Debbie.
