Habitat for Humanity – Empty Envelope Drive  –
Return Your Envelope This Sunday 
We have been participating in a Empty Envelope Drive to help Habitat raise funds to build a home in Richmond.  We are asking everyone to stop by the bulletin board in the basement and pick up as many envelopes as possible.  By filling all of these envelopes, our church family will be extremely instrumental in helping Habitat fund the costs of building their latest home in Richmond, the very home that our church is helping to build this fall! 
 
We have currently raised over $2,000, but there are still more envelopes to be filled!  Please Help Us Get over the Top and fulfill a commitment of $4000 to finish the newest Habitat house in Madison County. 
 
Christmas Eve Service
Christmas Eve, Dec. 24 is a Sunday this year. We are planning a quiet worship of Scripture, Carols and Communion at both the 9:30 and 10:45 worship service. It will be family friendly and will give the birth of Christ the dignity, glory and honor it deserves. Plan now to make this Christmas Eve Special by bringing the whole family to worship the new born Jesus! (Just so there is no confusion we are NOT having a service on Christmas Eve Sunday night. The only services will be on Sunday morning.)
 
Christmas Choir/Christmas Caroling
Rehearsals have started. Come to which ever adult practice is easier for you-Mon.Dec.18-6pm-1hour; Wed. Dec. 20-6pm-30minutes then we can go CAROLING!
 
Thank you Madison Hills
Your generosity is amazing! Hundreds of people in our community were affected by your love! We fed over 400 people. We gave gifts, they had someone to talk to, played games, sang Christmas carols, listened to live music…the list goes on and on. There is a little bit of Jesus in all of us and it overflowed into our community last Sunday night! People were touched by the good news of the birth of Jesus! Great job! We hope you have a wonderful Christmas!  Connie Masters, Jeff Baker and Marty Frazer
