HAYESVILLE FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH
PASTOR MEMO – December 5, 2013
Good Morning Church:
For those of you who gathered Sunday night for the concert, you will agree with me that it was a wonderful treat. The handbells and chancel choir did a fantastic job! Thanks to the choir, handbells and their directors Marcia Powell and Roger Hove for a most enjoyable and inspiring evening.
In other news;
The Kimball West Virginia Mission Team will leave this weekend for their annual Christmas party that they put on for the children and their families. Thank-you to those servants who are going and for those of you who donated gifts for the team to take. Please be in prayer for them as they travel.
The MissionAires have setup their Christmas Giving Tree to collect items that will be sent to our missionary Fran Lynch in Willow, Alaska. The items collected will be given to the children Fran works with in her ministry. Needed items are: children's socks, school supplies, snack items (granola bars, crackers etc.) that can be sent home with children on the weekends. The tree is located in the narthex in front of the Chapel.
Join us and invite your friends to the Gathering Place for refreshments immediately following the Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 14th. If you can supply some cookies, please bring them in on Friday.
