December 2017 “Happenings!”
Greetings, Brownsville Community Church Family … Below are Brownsville Community Church “Happenings” for your information and to add to your calendars.
NEW SUNDAY SERVICES TIME
Please note that Sunday Service is at 9:30 to allow for Sunday School and Choir Rehearsal.
INVITATION TO SHARE YOUR NATIVITY SCENE
It is not too late … if you would like to share your Nativity scene during Advent & the 12 Days of Christmas you can bring it to the Church midweek by just giving Bill a call (802-484-3200) and he will let you in. Otherwise you are welcome to set it up on Sunday. Someone will be available to assist you.
December 17th is Stewardship Sunday where you will have the opportunity to bring your pledge before the Lord. For those that have already mailed in their pledges there will be something in the bulletin symbolic of their pledge. The idea of Stewardship Sunday is not to strut our giving publicly rather it’s an opportunity as the church family to bring our tithes
and offerings before the Lord in a meaningful way that opens our hearts to obedience to the Lord as we give thanks for his provision in our lives.
Administrative Council will meet after church service Sunday, December 17.
ADVENT & CHRISTMAS
On December 24th we will celebrate the Fourth Sunday of Advent at 9:30 a.m. and Christmas Eve Service at 7:00 p.m. The Youth Choir will be singing Christmas Eve with pageantry. Please invite your friends, family and neighbors to Advent and Christmas services this year!!
