The Final Exam (Sunday, 20 November 2011)

Wow! It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Here at the Deer Creek Charge, we are very thankful for all of our friends and members who continue to serve God and reach out to our communities. What are you thankful for? Come join us for our Thanksgiving Eve Worship Service on this Wednesday (November 23) at 7pm at Deer Creek. Our Lay Speaker, David Moore, will be preaching. Spend some time with God before eating your turkey (or whatever you eat)…you won’t regret it! Check out the announcements below for more details.

This Sunday, we will hear a message called “The Final Exam” based on Matthew 25:31-46 (where Jesus separates the sheep from the goats in the final judgement). This is a hard passage…a lot of folks don’t really like to deal with it. Come join us as we wrestle with the text and God together. We can’t promise to have answers…but we can promise to walk with you as we work through faith and life together. Also…don’t forget…3rd Sunday of the month means 3rd Sunday Fellowship after worship at Mt. Tabor! Join us for worship and then stay for some food, fun, and fellowship! All are invited! Don’t forget…worship at Mt. Tabor this week starts 10 minutes early, at 10:50am. (Next week, we’ll be back on schedule at 11am).

Announcements:

TODAY, Mt.Tabor’s worship service will BEGIN at 10:50am. Please arrive a few minutes early, and then stay for our 3rd Sunday Food, Fun and Fellowship after worship! All are invited!

Thanksgiving Eve Combined Worship will be held on Wednesday at 7pm at Deer Creek. Our lay speaker, David Moore, will be preaching. Instead of bringing a monetary offering, please bring a non-perishable item. Children are welcome and encouraged to attend!

Board of Childcare Red Stockings are available at both churches. Each person is asked to fill their stocking to help needy children and return it on Sunday, December 4.

Christmas Cards and Caroling! Please bring in old Christmas cards and place them in the box at Deer Creek. Then, on Sunday, Dec. 4, stay for a few minutes after church and help our children make cards to give to our neighbors. On Sunday, Dec. 18, join us at 2:45 (start walking at 3) for some caroling. Start at Deer Creek, go as far as we can. We’ll finish up back at church for some hot drinks to celebrate! ALL are invited (please invite friends/family!). Baked goods (due in church Dec. 18), a driver, volunteer to set up drinks at church, and wagons needed. Please sign up! Questions/want to help? See Tammy.

Deborah Circle will be collecting money in a designated jar through Dec. 11 to buy new “emergency” clothes for the nurses/students at Hickory & Forest Hill Elementary Schools. ALL WOMEN are invited to join Deborah Circle for a meeting AFTER WORSHIP NEXT SUNDAY. Location: Mt. Tabor.
