ANNOUNCEMENTS
WELCOME VISITORS! We are glad you chose to
worship with us today. Please fill out a visitor’s card
from the pew and place it in the offering plate so we will
have a record of your visit. Assisted hearing devices
are also available. Parents are welcome to take
advantage of our nursery facilities and graded worship
through middle school. (See a greeter for directions.)
PLEASE KEEP MIKE AND JONI WOOD in your
prayers as they prepare to start their new ministry here
with us at Bethany. Mike will be here next Sunday,
January 4, for his first Sunday with us.
TONIGHT we will have an “Un-decorating Event” at 5
p.m. We’ll meet to take down all the Christmas
decorations from the buildings. We’ll need lots of
helpers, so plan to come out and lend a hand!
“THANK YOU” to everyone who helped make our
services so special this Christmas season! We
appreciate each and every person who helped out in
any way, whether it was providing a poinsettia, or
helping put the decorations up (or take them down). We
appreciate the efforts of Neil Weathington and the Adult
Choir last Sunday as they brought their wonderful
cantata, “Shine on Us.” Thank you to every musician,
singer, reader or server involved in our Christmas Eve
Candlelight Service. And thank you to everyone
involved behind the scenes in so many ways too
numerous to mention. We appreciate the spirit of our
volunteers here at Bethany!
TCTC WILL BE HERE SOON! All our youth are
reminded that the Tennessee Christian Teen
Convention is just around the corner, January 9-11. If
you’ve not confirmed that you’re attending this year,
see Jenn Nasser as soon as possible! If you need
information about the event, go to www.tctcinfo.com
THE COMMUNION PREPARATION LIST for 2015 is
available in the foyer for volunteers to help prepare
communion on Sunday morning.
FOOD PANTRY DRIVE – The “Item of the Month” for
our Food Pantry for December is toilet tissue, paper
towels and diapers. There is a bin in the foyer to
deposit these items. Thanks for your help, and
remember if you know of someone in need, either send
them our way, bring them to the pantry, or take items to
them.
THE WOMEN’S SHELTER items needed for December
is personal items (shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant
and feminine products.) There is a bin for these items in
the foyer.
NOTE OF THANKS: “Dear Bethany Christian, On
behalf of Christian Campus Fellowship, we would like to
thank you for supporting our ministry with your dinner
contribution. You have helped us keep a friendly
atmosphere where students can be filled in the Holy
Spirit. May God continue to bless you and your church.
Happy Holidays, CCF Interns”
