Sunday School Christmas Program
December 15th @ 6 p.m.
Join us for a delightful program called 'Christmas Clues' as our Sunday School children share the Christmas story with us through story and song. Sunday School youth who would like to sing or play an instrument as part of the Christmas program are asked to sign up on the sheet outside the church office.
Practice times are as follows:
Sun., Dec. 8th 10:15-11:15 a.m.
Sat., Dec. 14th 10:30-Noon (1st - 5th graders only)
Sun., Dec. 15th 10:15-11:15 a.m. (All grades)
Volunteer at the Food Pantry
Through the years, Messiah has been a great supporter of the Hamilton County Food Pantry. 3 of our members presently serve on the Food Pantry Board and, we would like to offer other members of Messiah the opportunity to volunteer at the Food Pantry. Jobs include sorting donations, stocking shelves, preparing food orders, cleaning, or other tasks as needed.
The following dates and times are when one of our Messiah members is scheduled to work and they would love to have one or two others join them at the Pantry. If interested, look for the sheet in the narthex or contact the church office.
Upcoming Dates are:
Thursday, December 19th, 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Saturday, December 29th, 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
The west addition is sheet rocked as you can tell from the above picture, and the west addition should be sheet rocked by the end of the week. Taping, mudding and sanding will soon commence. In the meantime. fall programming is in full swing which has created some interesting space challenges particularly on Sundays and Wednesdays, but we are having fun in the midst of our ordered chaos!
Our motto these days is:
Be patient. Be flexible. Be kind. Be willing to think outside the box. Be Christ-like
as we live together into our new, yet not quite complete additions.
Plus, everyday of dry wall dust is one day closer to completion!
A Mission Builder tradition is to
invite the congregation to sign
the walls of their building project
before it is sheet-rocked. Our
Mission Builders signed all together
and then the congregation signed on
Rally Sunday, Sept. 8th with all
the Sunday School kids signing the
walls in their new rooms. It was so
much fun to see the kids grab their
parents after Sunday School was
over and ask "do you want to see
where I signed?!"
Our Mission Builders
Helping us with our Building Addition Project were the Mission Builders of the ELCA. We were especially pleased to have with us for the summer (listed by couples left to right): Clarence & Marlene Strabel, Rich & Lindsey Hofer, Bob & Barb Queck, Chris & Karin Dunker, Roy & Elaine Doell, Howard & Ann McCartha.
