CHRISTMAS CAROLING – On December 17th at 6pm the family of Faith Community Church will gather together here at the church to go Christmas caroling throughout our neighborhood. After caroling we will have cookies and hot chocolate at the church, provided by the Young Adult Bible Study. Please join us!
 

WORKING WOMEN’S EVENING FELLOWSHIP – Looking to connect with other women who are balancing life at home and at work?

Please bring a wrapped pair of gloves ($10 limit) for our gloves exchange. Contact Lori at johnloristevens@gmail.com for more info and directions.

 
NURSERY NEEDS – Are you looking for a way to serve in the church? The nursery has an opportunity for you. We are looking for 1 or 2 adults and 1 or 2 youths  (age 12 and up), to help one Sunday each month. We are also in need of volunteers for our Christmas Eve services. If you are interested in helping, please contact Brenda Handel at 410-451-8180 or cbmek20@verizon.net.
 
CHRISTMAS EVE – We have a huge opportunity to invite family and friends to hear the gospel with the Christmas Eve Candlelight services, one at 4:00 pm and one at 5:30 PM. There will be special music, drama, a message, and of course the lighting of candles, to answer the question: “What Child is This?”
 
BLESSED HOPE –   Blessed Hope Nepal was established by missionaries to help a group of ladies in Nepal by teaching them to make and sell bracelets to provide income for impoverished families as well as provide a vehicle for outreach and discipleship. Recently one of the ladies, Neema, acquired a large amount of medical debt due to her mother being sick with cancer. Just this past week, sadly, her mother passed away. We will have a few bracelets available for sale in the foyer, in order to help pay for the medical bills Neema has acquired. 100% of the money will go to Neema’s medical debt. Please stop by the table and take a look!
