In Worship This Week
     This Sunday, December 9th, our text will come from the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 3, verses 1-6, and I will be talking about how the meaning and message of Jesus’ ministry becomes even more alive when properly placed within the cultural and political context of the early 1st Century.  I’ll also be exploring what is similar and different now in the 21st century.   How much might we share with the early church?  Please come this Sunday and we can talk about that.  
Leadership Team Meeting
     There will NOT be a Leadership Team Meeting on December 9, 2018 unless any of the leaders see a need for one.  Next Leadership Team meeting will be January 13 2019.

Advent study of Adam Hamilton’s video series, Not a Silent Night
     This year, experience Advent and Christmas with the one who knew Jesus more intimately than anyone else—his mother, Mary. Imagine the pain she felt at the crucifixion, her pride as Jesus’ ministry grew, and her unrestrained joy when she looked into his tiny face that fateful night in the stable. Join us Sunday mornings in December at 9:30 in the sanctuary for this year’s Advent study of Adam Hamilton’s video series, Not a Silent Night.  The study will help you witness the life of Jesus from Mary’s unique perspective, starting at the very end and traveling back in time to the very beginning—the night of Christ’s birth.

Christmas Cantata
Sunday, December 16, 2018 at 4:00 p.m. at KUMC.  Come enjoy an evening of beautiful music performed by our Living Hope choir under the direction of Luann Hardy.
Pie, coffee and fellowship to follow.  
Christmas Eve Services
On Monday, December 24th, Christmas Eve, our congregation will celebrate two worship services. Our 7:00 p.m. traditional candlelight gathering will include the singing of our favorite carols and the reading of the Christmas Story from the Bible. The more somber 11:00 p.m. worship will include scripture readings, carols, and will also include the sharing of Holy Communion. You are encouraged to attend either or both of these worship opportunities.
