If you haven’t picked up your 2018 offering envelopes yet, they are on the table outside the Worship Center. If there are envelopes with your name on them that you don’t need, please return them to Judy so they can be reassigned. If you don't have them but want them, please email Judy at parksidejudy@sbcglobal.net or call the church office at 399-4410. (If you don’t do direct deposit, using the offering envelopes makes it easier for our financial counters.) Thank you for joining us this month as we have walked through the journey of Advent, from the Prophecy of the coming King all the way to celebrating His birth. Every Sunday, we dug deeper into a different part of the journey with the themes based off the Advent candles: Prophesy, Bethlehem, Shephards, Angels, and of course Christ. This morning we focus on the sacrificial, others-focused love revealed in Jesus Christ and tonight we will be celebrating the King’s birth with a candlelight service. Please invite your friends and family to attend with you at 6 p.m. tonight. TODAY-GOD IS LOVE 10:00 AM (Adult Choir Singing) TONIGHT-CHRIST- LOVE HAS ARRIVED 6:00 PM (Candlelight Service)
