Life Together

Advent Meals for Confirmations Students & Church Soup Supper during Advent: Sign up sheets are in the book in the narthex for confirmation meals during Advent. The first meal will be on Dec. 2. Dec. 9 is the second meal. And on Dec. 16 it will be a soup supper for the whole congregation with soup provided, please sign up to help with desserts and crackers.


Naomi Circle will meet this Wednesday, December 9, at 8:30 am for their annual Christmas breakfast at the Windrow. All ladies are invited to join us for fellowship, food and a Christmas devotion. You are welcome to bring a guest.


Rachel Circle will meet at Candace Peterson's home Monday December 7th at 6:30 pm. Meet at the church to carpool at 6:15 pm . Bring a snack to share and a grab bag gift.


The Board of Education will provide soup for the congregational meal on December 16 at 5:45 pm prior to the final Advent service. Check the sign up sheet in the narthex. Please plan to attend for this time of fellowship.


There will be an extra practice for the Sunday School Christmas program on Saturday, December 12. We will meet in the sanctuary at 9:30 for about an hour.


Visitors: We do collect offerings during our worship services. While we believe this is a chance for each believer to be a good steward of the gifts they have received from God, we do not expect you to give an offering while you are our guest.


YOU ARE INVITED to the Preschool Christmas Program on Sunday, December 13 at 2:00 pm. We would love to see you all there!



"Cans for Cancer": Everyone has been touched by cancer whether directly or indirectly. We pray for many every week of the year. Let's work together to do something in addition to our prayers! Start saving your pop cans (any cans as long as they are worth a nickel and rinsed out.) We'll have a container at both locations and collect cans through June15 with funds being donated to Relay for Life. The night of Relay for Life (June 17) we would like to have some fellowship time with a table set up at the event here in Creston with Trinity information, snacks, etc. and support those we know as they take the first survivor lap. Save that date! Watch for more information as we begin the new year. In the mean time.... save those cans! Julie Lang



The Sunday School Children will be presenting the Story of Jesus birth to us on December 13 at the 9:45am Service (CR). There will be Congregational fellowship following in the fellowship hall.
