God speaks to us through His Word, and sometimes He sings. The prophet Zephaniah proclaimed: “The LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing” Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV) God sings over us…I love that. Don’t you?
Poinsettias are now on sale for $10 per plant. If you wish to remember or honor someone via the printed program on Dec 3, orders should be placed in the church office by no later than Sunday, Nov 26. We are deeply grateful for all who help adorn our sanctuary for the Christmas season in this way.
The Gift Goes On is this year’s Season of Wonder presentation by the combined voices of Chancel Choir and JOY Singers. It will be a service of praise and thanksgiving to our heavenly Father for the greatest gift ever given – His only Son, Jesus. We eagerly anticipate sharing this experience with you so plan now to invite family and friends to join us.
JOY Singers, please bring your Ready-to-Sing Southern Gospel Volume 3 books to rehearsal this week.
Thanks again in advance to Sid Johnson for leading worship in my absence the first two Sundays of November. Sid is a man of many talents, serving as worship leader in other churches for years before coming to Alta Woods. I am grateful for his willingness to serve through the musical gifts God has given. We are so blessed!
Still Missing: 2016 AWBC Resource Book (also known as Church Directory) belonging to Terry Watts. I have kept each of these since 1999. It serves as a planning guide and music ministry reference. If found, simply place in my box in the church office. I shall be forever grateful.
