Speaking of Poinsettias

It's not to late to support our Christmas Poinsettia Display,

100 Poinsettia plants will adorn the Chancel area of our church during the Christmas Worship Services. You may reserve one or more plants in honor or in memory of loved ones. Place this form with your check in the offering or bring to the Church Office. Please note “Poinsettia” on your check.  Cost per plant is $8.00. Plants may be taken home following the 11:00 p.m. Christmas Eve Service.  (Please Print Names Carefully & circle “in honor” or “in memory” ) ***This Sunday is the last Sunday before Christmas, and therefore the last chance to order with the insert in the Sunday bulletin.

This Week's Construction Video

The end is in sight. The area is leveling off and the rumor is that it may be finished before Christmas. The next phase will be trenching and installing storm drains, then plumbing & electrical and other underground utilities.Click on the image above to view the current video. Thanks again to Harvey for flying his drone.
