We have a couple notes for you as we move toward December.
(1) To allow for Thanksgiving and its necessary preparations, FUMC’s office hours will shift. The office will be open on Monday and Tuesday, November 25 and 26, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The church office will be closed on Wednesday and Thursday and will be back to normal hours the following week.
(2) If you are able and available, we would deeply appreciate your help decorating the church for Advent on Monday, December 2. We will gather at 9:00 a.m. and hopefully make short and joyful work preparing for the season of preparation.
If you would like to assist with decoration but that schedule is inconvenient, please contact me and I’ll see about pairing you up with a helper and a task.
This can be a busy and stressful season, and a season of darkness and grief for many of us. Please be patient with each other and be fervently in prayer for one another. Above all, just be loving to each other, and the presence of Immanuel will be evident through you.
