Joy is an interesting word. We usually think of it as a synonym for happiness, but it's greater than happiness, isn't it? And when the Angel announced Jesus' birth to the shepherds, it was not simply a message of joy -- it was one of GREAT JOY!
“I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people.
This Sunday, December 22nd, we'll be talking about JOY and how we can experience it for ourselves. Once again, we'll be using the classic film "It's A Wonderful Life" to illustrate what joy really is. I hope you'll be able to join us.
Our annual Christmas Eve worship service will take place on December 24th at 5:00 pm. The service of scripture reading, special music, and carol singing will last about an hour and conclude with candle lighting and the singing of "Silent Night".
I'm arranging for readers of scripture passages as a part of the service. If you are interested in participating as a reader, please contact me (206-650-1557). I hope you'll all be able to attend this special celebration of Jesus' birth.
Calling All Family-less Folks
Tami and I will be alone on Christmas day and we started wondering about others who might be looking for people to share the day with. So this is an open invitation for anyone who would like to join us at our home.
We'll gather at noon for a potluck brunch and fun. Bring some food to share and a white elephant gift. If you have any questions, give Tami a call (206-380-6363).
