When I was a little kid, I loved stickers. My Uncle owned "Palmberg Auto Supply" in Aurora, NE, and he gave me a box of stickers - mostly advertising NAPA and various car parts and products. I enjoyed adding to my box of stickers and one that I remember fondly was this iconic image of the era.
The "V for Victory" sign was re-branded during the Vietnam War by protesters who sought the end to conflict. This hand gesture became known as the peace sign (although, if you go onto social media you'll notice countless Japanese girls making this gesture and I don't think it has anything to do with peace - it's just what you do in a photo).
Peace is something that everyone wants to experience and so it's a wonderful message when the angel declares "Peace on Earth" and the prophet Isaiah tells us that the Messiah Jesus is "the Prince of Peace". But what does that mean?
This Sunday, December 9th, we'll be looking at the theme of PEACE as it is found in the Christmas story and how it can be experienced in our lives all year round. I hope you'll be able to join us.
Christmas Caroling Tonight!
Tonight, Thursday, December 6th, we'll be caroling through Twisp as a part of the "Mistletoe Madness" shopping night. We'll meet at the end of Glover Street near the big tree at 5:30 pm and then work our way down the street singing as we stop in at the different businesses. Plan on joining us for this festive way to spread the true meaning of Christmas through song!
Community Prayer Gathering - Friday, 12/7
This Friday evening, December 7th, there will be a community prayer gathering at the Community Center in Twisp focused on drug use in our valley. Everyone is encouraged to join together in prayer beginning at 6:00 pm as we pray for those caught up in this destructive behavior and seek God's guidance and power to bring the hope of experiencing freedom from its grip.
Bringing Our Gifts to the King
The Worship Service on Sunday, December 16th will be extra special because it will feature everyone's gifts!
Although we will be highlighting our children in the program, we're hoping for this to be a multi-generational celebration. We invite anyone to share their gift as a part of our worship service. We'll also be turning the Fellowship Hall into a gallery for people to display their art, photography, needle work, wood working, etc. Everything we've learned to do is a gift from God and can be used to give Him praise!
Sign up in the Fellowship Hall by this Sunday, December 9th, to make sure you're included. Contact Mandy Schmekel for more information (509-341-4257)
