EF COMMUNITY CHORUS
Please join Sue B., Fred & Joy C., Dan & Joanie K., Bruce P., Bill & Paulette S., Lynn J. and Tim G. and the rest of the Elizabeth Forward Area Community Chorus for our Christmas Celebration entitled Peace is Come’.  The music that Kem M. has chosen shares the message of the coming of Christ with a little Rudolph thrown in for fun.  With combined Adult and Junior Choruses of over 60 voices singing numbers that will make you cry and laugh.  The Concert will be held at the Elizabeth Forward High School on November 30th and December 1st at 7:30 and December 2nd at 3:00.

Ticket prices at the door are $10.00 for Adults and $8.00 for Seniors and Students.  A discount of $2.00 is available on each ticket purchased in advance.  Please see a Chorus member beforehand to purchase a ticket at the reduced price or stop in the church office.  A portion of the proceeds from the Concert will benefit the local Meals on Wheels and nonperishable food stuffs and paper products will be collected at each concert for the Food Pantry.

HANGING OF THE GREENS
Hanging of the Greens will take place on Saturday, December 1st at 9:00 a.m.  Many hands and strong backs are needed for this project.  Thanks for your help.

ANNUAL CONGREGATIONAL MEETING
The Annual Congregational Meeting will be held after Worship on December 2 at which time the following items will be decided; election of officers, nominating committee, financial review committee, the Pastor’s Call and reception of the budget for 2019.

TROOP 99 TOY COLLECTION
Once again, the boy scouts in Troop 99 will be collecting toys for low income children in the Mon Valley.  Large boxes will be in both the lower entrance and narthex doors for anybody wishing to donate.  Toys should be new, unwrapped and non-violent.  Over the past few years, our collections here at Mt. Vernon, Central Highlands, and Round Hill churches, have totaled approximately 1,000 toys!

The toys will be collected December 9th following worship and taken to the distribution center.

Once again, we appreciate your support and thank you in advance for your generosity.

SOUP ORDERS
I hope everyone enjoyed the Wedding Soup for November.  Get ready for a new one…

Beef Barley!

We will be having the soup sale on December 9th right after church or right after the luncheon that day.  We are keeping the prices the same, $7.00 for a quart and $3.50 for a pint.  As usual, if you can bring the jars back to church and place them in the kitchen we would appreciate it.  If it is too hard for you to get to the kitchen to return your jars, give them to Joanie, Pat, Sherri, Paulette or Sue P. at church in the sanctuary.  If you want us to try a new soup, please let me know and we will see what we can do.

Also, if you want to bring your own cloth bag to carry your soup home in, that would work also.  We really do appreciate you supporting us in this fundraiser…

ADVENT LUNCHEON
The Annual Advent Covered Dish Luncheon will follow worship on December 9th in Fellowship Hall.  Beverages and place settings will be provided. We ask that you bring a dish according the first letter of your last name.  If bringing hot items, try to bring them in crock pots so they can be plugged in and warm.

A-G Dessert
H-M Salad
N-R Vegetable
S-Z Main Dish

COOKIE EXCHANGE
The 2nd annual cookie exchange will be held on Sunday, December 23rd from 11 - 1.  We are asking again for help from our members in making a few dozen cookies to donate for the sale.  As you saw from last year, we had a great selection of cookies.  We will sell them again for $7.00 a pound, you pick and choose which ones you want.  We hope to have ladylocks and pizzelles by the dozen also.  As usual, everything we make as profit goes to the kitchen renovation fund.  We will be baking cookies in the kitchen either Friday December 21st, or Saturday, December 22nd, if you want to come and join us making cookies.  It's always a fun time to bake and gab away with friends.  We will have a list in the back of the church to sign up for what cookies you are making so we all don't end up making chocolate chip.

Any questions, talk to someone on the kitchen committee and again, thank you so very much in helping us with this fundraiser.

ANNUAL CONTRIBUTION REPORT
In order to have your annual contributions counted for 2018, your final contribution should be in the office by December 30th.  Thank you for your cooperation.  Late contributions cannot be accepted as the deposits have to be to the bank early the next morning.

UNHANGING OF THE GREENS
Helping hands needed on January 5, 2019, to un-decorate and store decorations for next year.

CHILDREN’S CHURCH
Children ages 3 through 8 are dismissed after the Children’s Sermon to join two adults for about 40 minutes for a time of crafts or a game, a Bible story and maybe a snack. Signup sheets will be available in church on Sundays. There must be two adults each week to be with the students. All teachers are required to have their clearances.
