November 20th News and Notes

Hanging of the Green

We will meet after church on November 24th to decorate the church for Christmas and Advent.  We will have a soup luncheon and join together to decorate.  Many hands make for short work!  We will also have an activity for kids and families as we put together Advent wreaths for at home devotions!

Interfaith Thanksgiving Service

On Sunday, November 25th, the Bowie Interfaith Council will host it’s Thanksgiving service at Christ Community Presbyterian Church (CCPC).  It will begin at 5:30 with a community potluck.  At 6:30, we will gather together to give thanks in worship.  Please join us!

 

Adult Christian Education

We are exploring restarting our Adult Ed in January.   If you are interested, please plan on attending a brief meeting on December 1st after worship.  If you are unable to attend, but are interested, please let Shirley Bickel know.

Mission and Service Committee

🎄For Christmas we’re collecting items for the Senior Citizen stockings at the Bowie Food Pantry.  Pens, word searches, lotions, nail polish, kleenex, stationary, etc. are all much appreciated. Due by December 13th.

Gingerbread Houses

We will have our gingerbread house night on Sunday, December 8th at 5:00.  The cost will be $5.00 per house kit, as well as a bag of candy to share for decorating.  Pizza will be provided.  This fun event is open to all ages!   Sign up is required by December 3rd!
