We received word this morning from Scott Leatherberry that our sister in Christ, Kathy Clevenger, has passed on to the church triumphant. We grieve with Scott, but rejoice that Kathy's suffering has ended. A virtual memorial will be put together this week by Scott, Shaun, and Sunny and posted online. A link to share with family and friends will be communicated once it is available.
"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 8:38-39)
The Mysels family is under quarantine due to positive test results, so Judy will not be in the office this coming week. Pastor Tony will be in his usual 3 days during the week, but expect the answering machine to pick up if calling the office during the week of December 7-11, 2020. The best way to communicate is to send an email to the appropriate person.
As a reminder, staff emails are:

Poinsettia Orders Due Tomorrow
Poinsettia orders with dedications in honor of and in loving memory of family and friends are stll being accepted. Since our Christmas Eve worship service will be online only, we wanted to offer a way for members to get their flowers and still have the ability to dedicate.
So, you can continue to send in orders as usual. Judy will pick them up as she does every year on Friday, December 18.
You now have two options to make with your order:
You can elect to pick up your poinsettias early to enjoy during the week of Christmas in your home. The flowers will be available in the Gathering Place for pick-up during regular office hours (9:00AM-2:00PM). If you are unable to pick up during these times, contact Judy (firstname.lastname@example.org) to make arrangements.
You can choose to have the flowers used to decorate the front of the sanctuary for the December 20, 24 and 27 services.
The order form can be found in the December Newsletter, linked below. Payment can be made by check to the church or by using the donate button on the website with "poinsettias" in the comment/instructions upon payment completion. Deadline for orders is December 6.
