|Wow, it even FEELS like Christmas this week! There are lots of ways to spread the joy at CBCB this Christmas season:
Celebrate with us Christmas eve at 2:30, 4:00, 5:30. We’ll sing together and celebrate with communion. You can HELP – by 1) inviting your friends (pick up invitation cards at the connection center) (2) sign up in the lobby to help with Kids (maybe you can “work” one service and attend another?) (3) reply to this email if you’d like to be an “extra greeter”.
Christmas Concert to benefit St Jude’s kids ranch is at CBCB Friday 12/8. Check out the flier here.
There are 31 kids at St Jude’s ranch. They will get presents, but what they WONT get is anything personalized for them. Does that bother you? It bothered Melissa Laster so she’s organizing a Stocking Project. Here’s how it works: you pick up a zip lock bag at the table in the lobby this weekend, it will have a name, age, and suggested little gifts & goodies. Bring it back to CBCB next week with the goodies. MEANWHILE Melissa is getting stockings embroidered with the kids’ names on them. She’ll fill them with YOUR goodies, and deliver to the kids in Jesus’ name.
The Blessing Tree is in full force. We are taking toys to the kids in Port A, and Rockport hurt by hurricane Harvey. Don’t forget to bring your toys, gift cards, wrapping paper this weekend 12/9-12/10 as we are delivering them NEXT weekend. Want to help? Have questions? Check in with CBCB’s resident elf, Carla Clark (firstname.lastname@example.org)
3rd annual Christmas Day Potluck will be on Christmas Day in the Foyer at CBCB. We will start at noon and stay as long as you like. Fun & Fellowship – See the sign-up sheet in the Connection Center or email email@example.com.
See you this weekend at CBCB!
