Five Reasons a Small Group Will Help You Grow
by Chris Morton
1. Jesus' Way of Life Cannot Be Learned Alone.
2. Support Encourages Change.
3. Relationships Lead to Sharing.
4. Mission Happens in Small Groups.
5. Small Groups Take Church Beyond Sunday.
http://www.exploregod.com/five-reasons-a-small-group-will-help-you-grow#sthash.pR8orCgE.dpuf
Thank you for your part in reaching out to the children of the world.
Please continue to pray for the children and for those that work on and
deliver the boxes from here.
YOU MAY STILL HELP if you wish by giving an offering in the
next couple of weeks. Simply designate on an envelope "shoebox".
THANK YOU to all who had a part.
These are 5 good reasons to be a part of a Small Group. The Elders
are wanting to get our Small Group ministry back on track and want
to offer a few new groups beginning in January.
Maplewood Church
Children's Christmas Program
December 21, 2014
Rehearsals: Every Sunday morning, during the worship service, the
children will be practicing with Mrs. Dharma Leon and their Sunday
school teachers.
Props and Help: We will need help borrowing some props and
setting up Friday, December 19 at 5:00 pm If you can help, please
contact Dharma Leon at 473-2503.
Props needed by Sunday, December 7:
artificial Christmas tree with stand and lights only
Christmas stockings to hang on mantle (one per child in performance - 15)
Nativity figurines with baby Jesus able to be removed from the
manger. (This Nativity scene needs to be big enough to be
appreciated by the audience yet sturdy enough for kids to handle the
figures without the fear of breaking them.)
Green, red, and white tissue paper - lots
tree ornaments (unbreakable)
Someone to prepare cookie dough for sugar cookies ready to be used
with cookie cutters the day of performance on stage. Kids will
actually help make cookies on stage. (No baking, just shaping.)
Serving Christ through the performing arts,

Congregational Meetings
Christmas Eve Music Special

reduce the number of regular

congregation voted to keep the
number of meetings at four per
year.
Can you believe it? It is time to
start planning our Christmas Eve
Service!
Designated Offering
"How can I support the Building
Fund?" . . . "How can I support
one of Maplewood's missionaries
with a special gift?" Please use

offering plate when it is passed.
Simple as that!
