Hiskidz & Deep Blue

As we move into the Advent and Christmas season, our Sunday School lesson this week tells the story of Elizabeth and Mary. Both of these women had been sent a message by God. He sent word that

they would both have a son. Both women trusted God and knew that He was at work in their lives and using them for His plan. God has a plan for each for us, and we must remember He is always at work in our lives. 


“A Day of Christmas Cheer” will be held on Wednesday, December 19, at 9:30 a.m. for the children in Grades 1-6. Please send $5 with your child to help with the poinsettias. We will begin our day by visiting Martha Coker Green Houses to deliver poinsettias and sing. Then we will return to the church for lunch and a time of baking Christmas cookies and candy. We will also make fun ornaments to hang on the Christmas tree. If anyone would like to help with this day, please feel free to volunteer and contact Tera Smith.  



On behalf of Mrs. Lettie and myself, I would like to thank everyone who came together to make this year’s Children’s Christmas program a success. I am so very proud of the children for their performance and participation. You guys rocked!! Thank you to Laura King for helping me fill some big shoes and sitting on the front row to direct the kids. Thank you to Amanda Canard and Jana Bennett for being with us every step of the way and doing whatever was asked or thrown at them. To Owen Richards and Neetsie Gary, the train was awesome!! Thank you for your time and talent. Jana Bennett, thank you for the “Joy Car” backdrop. Finally, thank you to Mary Kay Phillips, Rich and Rosemary Knox for making sure the children were fed a meal before the production. We are so blessed to have all of you.
