The days seem to be a blur as we are renovating a church during the Christmas season…now that was a great idea! Thank you to SO many of you who have stopped by to help over the last couple of weeks.
We are there (811 NE 88th Circle, 98665) again this week from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. Also, we will have some work on Friday night from 5:30-9:00 pm. Men – we’ve got a thousand jobs at this juncture that take manly skills. If you have a couple of hours, we can hammer out most of the little jobs with enough people. It is our hope to be done with the majority of the inside by Sunday. Then we will take the Christmas week off of work and finish up any details before our big move on January 5.
Hey Battle Ground! We have some exciting news coming your way as well…we didn’t forget you! This is that annoying moment when you think I’m about to tell you, but I’m not. 🙂 It’s Christmas, so pretend this is a gift under the tree and wait it out!
Sunday was full of fun as we kicked off our Christmas series! It’s about Joy and no matter what 2013 looked like, there is JOY available for you. In our darkest moments and our deepest despair, we can find peace in the Savior that was born on Christmas day.
A big shout out to Terrance and Kari who covered me as I was gone on Sunday. My youngest had her first gymnastics meet. I was a mess! So proud of my little girl who works so hard to achieve her goals. She did great and we look forward to her future!
The new year is a great time to jump in to volunteering! If you aren’t already volunteering in one of our environments one Sunday a month, you can sign up to volunteer at www.coffeechurch.com. We are particularly looking for Tiny Town assistants this month as our highlighted feature! Our 2-5 year olds are one of my favorite groups. There is nothing better than establishing how fun church can be in our young hearts! Jump in today!
We handed out a new Bible to someone on Sunday. So many people in our community have never owned a Bible and we are so happy to hand them out for free. Thank you to all of you who give to make that ministry happen week in and week out.
It’s not too late to bring toys and coats this season to help needy families. By the way, if your family is needy, will you please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org? We want to make sure that kids inside and outside of our church have a merry Christmas. We also have some food available if you need it. I know it’s hard to ask for help, but nothing makes us more happy than to take care of those of you who call North Creek your home.
Simply Christmas is TONIGHT at Hazel Dell from 7:00-8:00 and again at Battle Ground on Wednesday. It’s going to be fun for kids and adult with some amazing music. Join us! And it’s also a great opportunity to drop off those toys and coats!
See you soon!
