12-12-12 Article

Caption: Pastor Judy occasionally brings her friends, Lamb Chop and
Wrinkles, to church with her because these guys have been around for
awhile and can pack a pretty powerful punch with our kids. Everybody
talked about the birth of Jesus which is what we are celebrating in Advent,
and about loving Jesus.

Bluff Point UMC article for 12/12/12

Choir has been very busy! Choir rehearses at 7:00 PM on Tuesday
evenings, here at the church. We are preparing for Christmas, and would
love to have anyone who is interested…

Once again we will be doing a live nativity for Christmas. We need
actors, choir members, props, and people to make soup and sandwiches for
our actresses and actors. We’ve also talked about having a few folks make
some posters. This year it will be on December 16th, from 5:00 to 6:00 PM.
Let’s make this a beautiful event for our neighborhood. If you wish to be
involved, you know what to do - sign up on the sign-up sheet!!

Sunday, December 23rd, will be a Children’s Christmas service.
Bring your children, bring your grandchildren, bring your friends, bring
your friends’ children… Our worship service begins at 9:00 AM.

Our traditional Christmas Eve service will be at 7:00 PM on Monday
evening, December 24th. We will celebrate the birth of Jesus with
communion, candles, Christmas carols, and, of course, the Christ Child.

Speaking of birthdays, Bonnie Perry’s birthday was unintentionally
left off our December calendar. Bonnie’s birthday is December 27th.
Bonnie is Harper Glea’s grandma and Mark & Aimee Perry’s mom.

Our friend, Donna Johnston, is working hard on Christmas for the
Needy. As you know, this job requires many ideas and much help,
especially right now. This is a wonderful ministry that involves a great
many people. If you can offer your help, Donna would love for you to give
her a call at (585) 750-0862.

Please keep those who are serving our country in your thoughts and
