Candlelight Communion Service
You are invited to join us on Christmas Eve for our annual Christmas Eve Candlelight Communion Service. The reading of the Christmas story, singing Christmas carols, and joining with family and
friends around the communion table are highlights of this simple, yet significant, observance of our
Savior's birth. The service will begin at 6:00PM.
The Season for Giving
The church board invites everyone to continue our tradition of providing monetary gifts to our pastors
and staff. Deadline for contributing is Sunday, December 11. Mark on your tithe envelope "Pastors Gift". The gifts will be presented Sunday December 18. Thank you for your generosity.
We Need Your Help!!
Help the Preteen girls buy for those children who are less fortunate. Cheryl Farmer and Jill Scott are
taking the preteen girl class (about 20 girls) on their annual "Toys for Tots" shopping trip December
9th. The girls look forward to this shopping trip every year. If you can help with monetary
donations let Cheryl Farmer 635-8574 or Jill Scott 425-3906 know before Friday, December 9th.
Back by Popular Demand
The discipleship class with Pastor Phil, "Transformed for Obedience," will be Tuesday evenings at
6:30pm. This five-session class teaches how God's plan of salvation includes His purpose to
empower us to live in obedience to His will. What all of us have found to be impossible in our own
power, the Holy Spirit in us makes possible. The Bible uses the term "sanctification" to describe
how God does this. You are invited to not only learn what it means to be sanctified, but to
experience its reality in your life. Please sign up in the foyer so we can know how to prepare for
those who will be attending.
Amazon.com Shoppers, Did You Know?
If you happen to be a Amazon.com shopper, did you know that you can sign up for a program in
which Amazon donates a small percentage of all your purchases to the charitable organization of
your choice MCON. If you are interested in participating in this program, go to
www.smile.amazon.com and follow the instructions. You can search for "Middletown Nazarene" and our church's name will come up. Be sure to designate the Indiana Middletown church, however. From there you will receive information on how to participate by using the www.smile.amazon.com home page for all your Amazon purchases.
Toys for Tots
Please note that the deadline for donating toys to Toys for Tots is next Sunday, December 11.
Christmas Gift Lift
Be sure to stop by the "Giving Tree" in the foyer and pick up a gift tag for someone in need. You'll
want to pay special attention to the instructions on the tag. All gifts should be brought to the church office no later than December 19.
We believe in "Praying First" and we believe God loves to hear the prayers of His people!!
