This is the time of the year that we show our appreciation and love to our pastor and our worship leader with a love offering. A box is available for each on the table in the foyer. Also, you may place your offering in an envelope marked for Tony or Jody through the Sunday School or Worship Service.
We are nearing our Lottie Moon Christmas Offering Goal of $10,000. To date approximately $8,000 has been given. Pray and let God lead you in your offering. God has blessed Elam in many ways this year.
Remember to pay for your poinsettias--$10.
Merrymaker Captains, let Anne Proctor know today how many Merrymakers plan on attending annual Christmas party. Jordan's River will be presenting Christmas music. If you are not a member of Merrymakers, you are invited to come join us for delicious food, fellowship, and entertainment. Love offering will be taken.
Congratulations to Tony and the Adult Choir on the outstanding performance of the Christmas musical last Sunday. If you didn't have an opportunity to tell them how much you enjoyed the musical, take time today.
Parents, remember your younger youth or children cannot come to Sunday School, AWANA, or other activities if you don't bring them!
