December has been a busy month in our church! We had several new members join our congregation in December: Debra, Rebecca, Elizabeth, and James. We are excited to have them a part of our congregation! The church is decorated with beautiful poinsettias and many projects have been under way. Many stockings were filled to provide some Christmas gifts to kids in our local area through the Salvation Army. Also, the Willing Worker's had a hat, glove and mitten drive named "Operation Snowflake" which collected 40+ sets to help out kids in our area. It was a wonderful sight to see all the items that were collected in the front of the church before being delivered. Recently, 815.00 was given to the Community Partners/ Woodsboro Churches cause. This money provided gift cards that many local people used to buy turkeys and whatever they needed for their families. On top of that, there was Christmas caroling, and also our church raised money through a calendar fundraiser. 540.00 was sent to sponsor an orphan in Liberia for another year. Praise the Lord for all that we were able to accomplish with his blessings.

A fun time was had by all at the Willing Worker's Christmas Party. Our Willing Worker's did so much hard work through the year for our church, and to help many people both near and far. It was great to spend an evening together having a meal, singing Christmas carols, listening to a Christmas message from Pastor Narvesen, and watching the kids open their presents. Thanks to all our Willing Worker members!
