    We have been invited to Second Reformed UCC on Sunday, December 10th at 7:00pm to worship together in a time of prayer and healing. Rev. Horton says, “at times it can be difficult to feel hope, peace, joy, and love because our lives are filled with anxious insecurities and feelings of struggle and hopelessness.” Please plan to join in this meaningful service of worship and prayer led by Rev. Jim Luck and Rev. Elizabeth Horton

    This weekend is the last chance to get your tickets for the smoked Boston Butts prepared by Mike Brown and team. There are a few tickets still available. They will be prepared on Friday, December 22nd and ready for pick up that afternoon between 3:00 and 4:00pm. December 10th is the LAST DAY TO PRE-ORDER. Payment for orders taken is due by Monday, December 11th. You will be given a ticket that you will need to pick up your order. No tickets will be sold nor will money be collected the day of pick up.

    The Evangelism Board will be selling First Reformed UCC Birthday and Anniversary Calendars for 2018. We would love to have full participation but if you object to having your birthday or anniversary included, please let the office know. Also, if you haven’t given either of those dates before, please call to make sure you’re on the calendar.

    There will be a congregational picture taken on December 17th immediately following the worship service. Bring $20 on this day if you’d like to purchase an 8×10 copy of this picture.

    Women’s Life Fellowship will be taking pre-orders during the month of January for homemade soup (Brunswick stew style). It will be available at the February congregational meal. It will be sold in quarts ($8.00) and pints ($4.00). Contact the church office to pre-order.
