THIS WEEK AT SYLVAN ABBEY: Greetings this Christmas Season and I hope we are looking forward to a joyous time remembering the birth of the Christ child and all that it means to us as believers. This week "Hope in the King" is the message from Matthew 11: 2-11. Last week we looked at John the Baptists introduction of Jesus to us and this week we find John in a completely different position in the Scripture. Come enjoy, learn, and meet the Jesus we are celebrating. Please pray our church continues to be under the power and grace of the Holy Spirit. God is good...All the time!! Sunday school for adults and youth. The adults are in week 5 of the "Christmas Experience" which has given us much to discuss and think about in this season. Put the Christmas Eve service on your calendar. It will be at 7:00 pm with a Candlelight Service. There will be great music, special music, and a message as we look at Luke 2, Hope has Arrived! After the Candlelight Service we will have refreshments and celebrate Jesus' birthday with a cake. Come to the Birthday party immediately after the Christmas Eve Candlelight Service. Come to Sylvan Abbey and bring a friend. We enjoy getting to know people and share our story of how Jesus has impacted our lives. Come share your story with us.

THIS WEEK AT SYLVAN ABBEY: Are you busy with the beginning of the Advent Season? We are "Working While We Wait" on the birth of the Christ child. This week we will look at the importance of introductions. Some professors of public speaking will confirm the most difficult speech to write is the introduction. How was Jesus introduced and by whom? Come and join us this Sunday as we look into the introduction of the Christ on the 2nd Sunday of Advent. This Saturday, December 6 we will have our 2nd "Brunch with Santa" along with Mary and Joseph, the Christmas Story, crafts for children, and a delicious brunch by Flapjacks Restaurant. This event starts at 10:00 am. This Sunday, December 7, is "Pot Luck" meal Sunday. Come, bring a dish and an appetite or just bring your appetite. The food is incredible and the fellowship is even better. Come and be a part of our Advent celebration, our Christmas Eve Candlelight Service on December 24 at 7:00 pm. We will be receiving canned goods for our Food Pantry at this service. Come, bring a friend, and let's meet Jesus together and let him guide and direct our life and our path. We enjoy worship!
