Christmas Program – December 16th  at 11 a.m.

The theme of our program this year is favorite Christmas traditions. The Sunday bulletins on December 2 and 9 will have an insert so that you can share with us your favorite Christmas tradition. Just write it out on the insert and then place it in the offering or the box in the foyer and we will include your response in our program. Also, we still have room for anyone who would like to share a musical or instrumental number or special reading. If you would like share in this way please contact Pastor Mark or Lena Anderson.

There will be a fellowship time after the program so please bring your favorite finger food to share.

Sharing the Love of Jesus at Christmas

The Gift Tree is decorated with tags that will provide a little help for families in need this holiday season!  Simply claim a tag and check it out on the information sheet hanging near the tree. Gifts need to be returned by December 19th. Tags will have information about gender, age and size. Suggested price range is $25. The gifts should be wrapped and identified with the tree tag when returned. If you would like to help a child, but can’t (or don’t like to) shop – we have Friends willing to brave the crowds for you. See Earlene Schlosser or call her at 541-890-6218 if you have questions.

FWMF says Thank You so very much for all the ways you partnered with us in our annual bazaar efforts, Nov. 17th, to raise funds for global outreach ministries. You were faithful in helping behind the scenes, providing encouragement, items to sell, preparing coffee & lunch & cleanup. The Lord blessed the day in fellowship and financially to date, when all proceeds are accounted for we anticipate clearing $1,200. YOU ARE APPRECIATED, thank you for demonstrating the body of Christ at work.
