Calling all singers - Please save these dates: Wed. Dec. 19th. For those who are already scheduling into December, we would like to let you know that we plan to have a Christmas choir again this year! Rehearsal is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 19th at 7pm. Feel free to talk to Lucy Giger if you have any questions.

Gingerbread Houses - Monday, December 17 at 6:00 p.m. please join us in building graham cracker gingerbread houses. There will be a soup and bread dinner starting at 6:00, followed by creative and sweet building at 6:30. This is a great opportunity for people of all ages! What to Bring: A cleaned out pint milk container, all other materials will be provided.

Adult Sunday School this Fall - We will study together, led by elders and past elders, a 6-part video series with R. C. Sproul titled “The Holiness of God.”  The Holiness of God examines the meaning of holiness and why people are both fascinated and terrified by a holy God. This series closely explores God’s character, leading to new insights on sin, justice, and grace. The result is a new awareness of our dependence upon God’s mercy and a discovery of the awesomeness of His majestic holiness. Dr. R.C. Sproul says, “The holiness of God affects every aspect of our lives—economics, politics, athletics, romance—everything with which we are involved.”

Offering envelopes: If you do not have offering envelopes for 2018 and would like them for 2019, please sign up on the sheet in Fellowship Hall.

Please join us in the church library following the service on Sunday, December 16 for an hour of Outreach. Whether you are thinking of joining or have ideas to share, please stop in!

We are not collecting shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child this year. If you want to participate, please go to www.samaritanspurse.org for instructions and to find a nearby drop-off center.

Dear Pastor Steve and Our Beloved Brothers and Sisters at Carlisle Congregational Church,

How is it possible that we could spend 10 wonderful weeks with you and it felt like 10 wonderful years? Was it the water? Well, yes. It was the rivers of living water from our bonds in the Holy Spirit that flowed from you to Jeannie and me.

We are enjoying the beautiful, fragrant bouquet of flowers gracing our living room as a reminder of how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity (Psalm 133:1). You welcomed us, affirmed us and made us feel right at home. 

Thank you so very much for ministering to us by way of the series on Holiness in Sunday School and the ensuing discussion and, of course, the rich blessing of fellowship with you our brothers and sisters in Christ.

With much love and affection,

Bob and Jeannie
