We will march in the Waynesville Christmas Parade on December 7 to represent our "Journey to Bethlehem". We encourage all who can march in the parade to do so; our presence represents the real meaning of Christmas. We also need a lot of candy to distribute along the parade route, which may be left in the box in the foyer.
A fund to purchase a new church bus has been started. If you would like to give to this fund, please mark your donaton as "bus fund" so that it will go to the appropriate place. This fund is intended to be separate from the church tithe and missions giving, and we ask that you not take from these funds to give to the new bus fund. It is simply open for those who can give or wish to give in order to purchase a much-needed church bus. Thank you, and God bless you for your service to Him.
All ladies are invited to attend the new ladies' Bible study on Wednesday evenings. The class will continue to be taught by Amanda Boberg and will meet in Roy Peterson's Sunday school classroom.

Times for the event will be posted as it approaches.
