What's Happening This Month

Sunday Services

My Advent series, Waiting on God, will look at our responsibilities as God's people as we wait for His Return. Accompanying this series will be a daily devotional, written especially for it. I hope that you all will consider participating in the devo as part of your Advent spiritual observance. Email the church if you would like the devotional sent to you.
Youth Ministry
~~Monthly movie night...1st Friday night of each month at 6:30 pm. This month’s movie on Friday, December 1st, at the church...we will be showing HOME ALONE! Popcorn, cookies and beverages provided. All ages welcome!

~~Muffin Tuesday....we continue to welcome Mt. Abe kids in as they wait for the bus...the muffins, doughnuts, juice and hot chocolate have been enjoyed by many. Thank you to everyone that is pitching in to help. What a great outreach to local teens!

Lorraine’s class would also like to remind folks to bring in their can tabs for the Ronald McDonald House and your pennies for Pennies From Heaven. The empty buckets are waiting!

Music Ministry

Rehearsals will be at 6:45 p.m. most Thursdays. We are looking to expand the music ministry to include solos or other musical offering from those who are not interested in the full-time commitment of being in the choir, but would like to occasionally share their musical gift. However, if you would like to take a seat up front, we always welcome new folks. 

There are some exciting ideas from our music ministry co-leaders, Matt Wood and Maggie Gates.  Our hope is to expand the music ministry to include more of you in different ways. Stay tuned!

In Fellowship

- Tuesday morning play group will be meeting. Contact the church office for details.

- On Thursday mornings the seniors gather for a mean game of cards. You don’t know what you’re missing – lots of laughs, food and fun. 

- On the third Thursday of each month Greg and Nancy Orvis host the Senior Lunch at Burnham Hall. There is always entertainment beginning at 11:30, with lunch at noon. Donations are accepted. 

Men Under Construction

Way back in 1996 a group of men from the five towns rode the bus down to our nation’s capitol to join one million other men in the Promise Keepers conference, “Men of Integrity”. So rich and moving was this experience that we decided to continue meeting here at home, and have done so for the past sixteen years. Our current gathering spot is The River, location of the Bristol Christian Fellowship. Meeting at 7 a.m. followed by breakfast at Snap’s, our format is patterned after the “KISS” (keep it simple, stupid) slogan of Alcoholics Anonymous – gather, get coffee, pray, read a book or the Bible, discuss, pray, adjourn. Currently we are earnestly engaged in a Bible study on some aspects of the life of David the King. All men are welcome!!

The only criteria for participation are a desire to mature in your relationship with Jesus and to discover how to serve Him in church and community.
So come on down! We can always squeeze in one more seat!
