Our Children’s participation in Advent services
This year we are going to change things up a bit. Instead of having a pageant the Sunday prior to Christmas, we will have the children act out the Advent story as we celebrate it each Sunday in December. Please fill out and return the form (an insert in this bulletin) by November 18th to allow us to further plan this fun celebration.

RRCC Thanksgiving Meal with Kokua
Thursday, November 22, 11:00 am-12:45 pm
Once again we are joining with Kokua services to have a special Thanksgiving lunch with all the trimmings… and more!  Each year we have about two dozen developmentally disabled adults and some Kokua staff join with members of our congregation for a holiday meal. We’d love to have you join in! Sign up in the lobby to indicate if you’d like to attend, or to help. You can also pick up ‘feathers’ with items needed for the dinner. Please note the sheets that indicate where and when to return the items.

Reboot Recovery
Thursday evenings, through December 6
The graduation ceremony is from 7-8 pm on Thursday, December 6. You are all invited and encouraged to attend! There will be a guest speaker, some participants will share, and cake will follow!
For the graduates’ meal on December 6, we just need salad, vegetables and rolls as the meat is already covered. We also need adults to supervise the childcare on Nov. 29 & Dec.6. Thank you so much for your outpouring of support for this course that helps combat veterans and their families. For more information, or to offer to help, contact Eric or Ellen Scott, Sabrina Williams, or the office.

Decorating for Christmas
We need people to help put up and take down our decorations for Christmas. Heather Birchman has agreed to be the point person but she’ll need lots of help. There is a sign-up sheet in the lobby. Heather will contact you to try to arrange a time that works best for everyone. We will also need people to take down the decorations in early January. It’s helpful if the people who put the decorations up, also help to take them down as they know where to put things.

Scrip
These gift cards are sold in our lobby each Sunday. A percentage of each sale goes to our Children & Youth Ministries. The deadline to order for December is November 25 (cards will arrive Dec. 9). The cost of the cards needs to be paid when placing the order. Questions? Speak to the person at the scrip table.

Church Office
The church office will be closed for Thanksgiving on Nov.22 & 23.

Christmas Giving Opportunities
Once again we will have the opportunity to bless the residents at Truly Motivated Transitional Living (TMTL) at Christmas. TMTL is a non-profit organization offering clean and sober housing to men and women in various stages of recovery. A gift tag for each resident will be in the lobby soon. Please consider picking up a tag and buying a gift for one of the residents at TMTL. Questions? contact Heather Birchman.
