Announcements for Sunday, Dec. 6

Pastor Travis is preaching an Advent sermon series on the person of Jesus. These services include a special emphasis on welcoming. Please pick up invitation cards in the foyer today to distribute to your friends and neighbors – we especially want to welcome guests who are not as familiar with the Christian faith.

The last Awana program of 2009 is Wednesday, December 16. Awana will resume after the holidays on Wednesday, January 6.

You can be a part of the Christmas Word Ministry by joining our doorhanger distribution effort on Wednesday night, December 16, at 6:00 p.m. We have invitational gift packets that we will take to neighborhood homes on that night. Take a look at an example packet in the foyer today!

Next Sunday we will receive a special offering for the 2009 PCA Ministerial Relief fund. This offering provides assistance to Teaching Elders, missionaries and church lay workers of the PCA.

December’s congregational meeting has been cancelled and will be rescheduled in January.

If you work with children in any capacity here at Highlands, we need to have a completed background check on you! If you are not sure if your file is completed, or if you are a new volunteer, please see Bekah to sign your permission for background check retrieval.
