Way to go Youth from the Lighthouse Word Church! They found out that Another Way, our local women’s abuse shelter would have a record number of children there this year for Christmas. So they challenged the congregation to bring in gifts for the children. They did and the youth wrapped them and delivered them. What a blessing!
Lighthouse Word Church will be having a New Years Eve Service, tonight (Thursday, Dec. 31), starting with food and fellowship at 6:30 p.m.
The service will start at 7:30 p.m., beginning with praise and worship, followed by a word for the New Year given by the pastoral staff and Evangelist Billy Mayo, and will conclude with receiving communion. Come and start the New Year in the presence of God. A nursery will be available for the service.
This month, six locations in the Tri-County Area will serve as collection sites for Operation Christmas Child—the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind. The annual Samaritan’s Purse project is a favorite of many tri-county area residents, families, churches and groups who spread joy to millions of children around the world by filling shoeboxes with items like a doll or soccer ball, other fun toys, school supplies, hygiene items and notes of encouragement.
Fall is here and it is time for the annual October Fest. This year it will be Sunday, Oct. 4, after the 10:30 a.m. church service. There will be bratwurst, sauerkraut, potato salad, apple sauce and much more. Good Shepherd Lutheran is located on US 19 north next door to the winery.
Blessing of Animals
The Annual Blessing of the Animals is Sunday, Oct. 4, at St. Alban's Episcopal Church. The church service is at 10:30 a.m. and the pets will be blessed after the service.
