DORCAS GUILD members will meet on Tues. December 3 at 11 a.m. in the Parish Hall highlighting the Advent/Christmas season with a devotional before the meeting. The meeting will be brief and will include a few announcements and updates about the Congregational Christmas Party. We will have a potluck salad luncheon - with everyone bringing their favorite salad to share. We also request that everyone bring a few cookies or candy to share. There will also be a gift exchange - however, this is optional. We invite guests to join us during this festive celebration.

It’s time to RSVP for the Congregational Christmas Party being held Saturday, December 7th. If you can spare a little time to help with organization, preparation, or clean-up, please check with one of the Lydia Ladies that will be in the Narthex this morning helping with information and food sign-ups!
