Merry Christmas

Its the most wonderful time of the year!

Merry Christmas one and all!


SUNDAY IS A BIG DAY! And incase you forgot about the times of both services:

Sunday Morning: Starts at 11am (as usual) but we will be having our church cantata sing. I hope everyone can make it cause there sure are some talented singers within that group, and as well Capt. Les' dad will be preaching in that service.

Sunday Evening (Christmas Eve Service): Will be commencing at 6:30pm. Come really early to get a seat!

Hope to see you guys all there at both services!

Countdown to Christmas: 3 Days

Countdown To Christmas..............

Has everyone got their christmas shopping done? What about your gifts wrapped and put under the tree?

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

He's making a list
And checking it twice;
Gonna find out Who's naughty and nice
Santa Claus is coming to town

He sees you when you're sleeping
He knows when you're awake
He knows if you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!

O! You better watch out!
You better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why

Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town
I hope everyone has the jolly good ol' christmas spirit in you!!!
and remember...

This Coming Sunday - Christmas Concert

Guess what? Do you remember? Have you not heard?

See you all there!

How To Get Into The Christmas Spirit

Christmas is supposed to be a time of peace, love and goodwill to all. But with all the stress and commotion of the season, many of us end up feeling more like Mr. Scrooge than Santa Claus. Maybe your working overtime this month and Christmas is at the back of your mind and you have no christmas spirit at all or maybe you forget this in 12 days it is christmas time! Here are some ideas of how to get into that cheery holiday spirit!

STEP 1: Shop early. Nothing takes away the Christmas spirit like fighting for parking and struggling through crowds.

STEP 2: Wish people that you meet in stores and other casual environments a happy holiday. Say it with a smile.

STEP 3: Place money into the Salvation Army kettles

STEP 4: Do something nice for someone. Offer to baby-sit so a friend can do her Christmas shopping, take cookies to your neighbors, or shovel an elderly neighbor's walk.

STEP 5: Volunteer your time to a worthy holiday cause. Even if you are busy, you can spare an hour or two to help people less fortunate than yourself.

STEP 6: Organize a drive at work or in your neighborhood. Collect food and personal items and donate them to a local shelter for the homeless or for battered women.

STEP 7: Play Christmas music.

STEP 8: Watch Christmas movies. "Elf" , "Santa Clause" is a good one for reviving a flagging Christmas spirit, as is "How the Grinch Stole Christmas."

STEP 9: Read "A Christmas Carol"

STEP 10: Decorate your house for the holidays.

STEP 11: Don't spend more money than you have. Anxiety over after-Christmas bills can ruin your holiday.
