ON A SMALL TREE in the Narthex you will find little red stockings. In each stocking are two little sheets of paper. One is for you to take and use as you shop, the other is to be filled out and returned to the stocking. There are three items listed for each individual. You can choose to give one, two, or all three. Sometimes the gifts are pricey and used items in good condition are allowed (especially coats, etc.). Items should be wrapped, a card attached, and a note attached as to the contents. (for easy removal before giving, your little shopping tag is fine.). Gifts need to be returned to King of Kings by December 17, 2017. Questions contact Aletha Voges.
BLUE CHRISTMAS DECEMBER 21 Christmas can be hard when we are missing a loved one, or maybe life just isn't going the way you thought it would. If this Christmas isn't as merry for you as it is for others, then join us December 21st, 7:00 pm for this Blue Christmas Service on the “Longest Night” A time to be held by God….A time to be lifted up in prayer….A time to experience the hope of Christ in the darkness of our world. Please feel free to invite others to come with you, as your support, or if you know that they are also feeling “blue”.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BRING A POINSETTIA PLANT to help decorate the church for our Christmas services, now is the time! You can sign up on a sheet in the Narthex by the Christmas Wish Tree. Please bring your Poinsettias by Tuesday December 20 at 3:00pm. Merry Christmas!

1 Corinthians 1:7 “…so that you are not lacking in any spiritual gift, as you wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ.” The Lord sees to it that we do not lack any gift – He has given us every spiritual blessing in Christ as well as every earthly need. He is the Provider. And we can trust Him to always provide for us in every way.
