This time of year can get extremely busy for many of us. To keep things in perspective the following events are scheduled for First Church of Christ over the next few months:
November 1 - Memorial Poinsettias
Orders for Memorial Poinsettias are due before Nov. 1. The cost is $13.36 per plant and you can order yours on the sign-up sheet in the foyer or contact Nancy at the office 225-2667 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know.
November 10 - Fellowship Potluck
A simple gathering to enjoy good food and friendships. Bring your favorite dish to share and join us for a wonderful
time of fellowship.
November 28 - Community Thanksgiving Dinner at Carey's Restaurant
What a great community event to share our bounty with others. Last year we served 176 meals between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. We also delivered some of those meals to those who get Mobile Meals. This day takes many volunteers to pitch in and help. Be on the lookout for sign up sheets to volunteer for grocery purchases, baking, serving, set-up, and clean-up.
December 1- Countryside Estates Christmas Party
This annual event starts with a "Giving Tree" which is assemble in the church foyer on Nov. 1. The tree will have paper ornaments on it with the names and preferred gift wants and needs of the residents at Countryside Estates Nursing Home and Assisted Living facility here in Cherokee. There will also be a sign-up sheet, when you choose an ornament, sign your name next to the name of the person you chose from the tree. Then purchase the requested items, wrap them, and return them to the tree with the ornament attached to the gift. Please have your gifts purchased and under the tree prior to Dec. 1 so we can be sure all those on the "Giving Tree" have gifts coming at the Christmas party.
December 8 - Special Guest, Bill Miller
Bill Miller will be our special guest as he performs piano Christmas concert for us.
December 15 - Bible Buddies Christmas Program
December 24 - Christmas Eve Candlelight Service
Join us for a beautiful Christmas Eve Candlelight Service where we praise the birth of Jesus.
