Wednesday Memo

Hey All You Carolers!

Remember that tonight is caroling. This is an ecumenical or better yet a community event. Some high school choir folks will be joining us. Please call everyone you know that enjoys Christmas caroling and encourage them to join us. Anyone can join us at any time along the route, so if you aren’t there right at 5:30 p.m. you know the schedule and can arrive whenever. No excuses. J

Event begins at Henry Hill Apartments at 5:30 p.m. Jeff Iverson will be bringing the song books along.

Then at 6 p.m. we go to Granite Manor, at 7 p.m. to Granite Ridge Place. After that we gather at Hazel and Darrell Carter’s home for a potluck dinner about 7:30 p.m. Please bring something food to share if you can.

Christmas Eve worship is at 4 p.m. on Saturday. Choir is singing. If the time is an issue for you, please feel free to join the folks at First Congregational Church in Monte at 5:30 p.m.

Christmas Day worship is at 9 a.m. as usual. There will not be a choir on Sunday.

Merry Christmas Everyone!
