CLC Church Council Message

We hope that all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and are prepared to launch into the holy season of Advent which officially begins on November 29th! This year at CLC promises to be busy with several special events as we lead up to the celebration of Jesus Christ’s birth. We hope that you and your families will join us and even welcome a neighbor or friend to share the joy of our congregation according to this schedule:

  • Wednesdays – Advent Evening Worship Services at 7pm on 11/29, 12/6 and 12/13
  • Sunday, 12/10 – Sunday School Children’s Christmas Worship at the 8:45 service
  • Sunday, 12/17 – Christmas Cantata at both services
  • Sunday, 12/24 – 10:00 AM Worship and Christmas Eve services at 4:30, 7:00 and 10:30pm

With 2018 just around the corner, we want to encourage any new volunteers who want to help out with worship services in any capacity to do so; it is a great way to get involved in the ministries of CLC. A sincere thank you to all of our current worship and music volunteers who give so generously of their time and talents each week.

One final note: Starting in December, we will be posting sign-up sheets on the patio following Sunday services seeking host families for the members of the Augustana Symphonic Band who will be touring and performing at CLC on February 18th, 2018. Full details are in the newsletter; please consider whether you would be willing and able to share your hospitality for this occasion.

Wishing everyone a blessed Christmas and a peaceful and joyous 2018!

John Sullivan, Worship & Music Committee
