Newsletter – December 14, 2021

Join us this Sunday, December 19, morning at 10:00 am for our Kids Christmas Pageant (under the direction of Trista Hanson) and the Adult Music program (under the direction of Martha Davis).
In addition, we will give in The Christmas Joy Offering. This has been a cherished Presbyterian tradition since the 1930s. The offering provides critical financial assistance to individuals and families who have dedicated their lives to the Church. It also supports leadership development training and education for students attending Presbyterian-related schools and colleges equipping communities of color. Thank you for your support of the Christmas Joy Offering!

Session requires masks be worn for all indoor church activities (worship, M in M, Sunday School, etc) regardless of vaccination status. Thank you for your cooperation, and for your care for our community, as we continue to deal with this pandemic. For the immediate future we will not have congregational singing indoors.

Online worship is here to stay for the many reasons you may join us online.

Spirit of Life is working to be sustainable through recycling. By introducing more recycling collocated at the location of most trash cans, we can significantly reduce the amount of waste being sent to the landfill while showcasing that reducing waste can be easy. Help us to celebrate sustainability while enjoying the event. Clean plastics, tin/metal and paper should go into the recycling bins and everything else should go into the trash. Thank you! Please see Pastor Rob, any Elder or member of the staff with questions.

Volunteers Needed:
We need one person each Sunday to serve as a Greeter and one person each Sunday to serve as an Usher for Sunday worship. We need two volunteers for each week. Please let Becky Brandt know what dates you are available to help and she will build a calendar. Thank you!
