Christmas Concert and Gala

Doors open at 4:15 pm and childcare will be provided for children under 5 years of age. There is no charge for this event and no need to sign up.
The gala will follow the concert at 6:30 pm in the fellowship hall. Please sign up below if you would like to help with refreshments by bringing a savory appetizer or homemade cookies.

New Pictorial Directory
Photography for our next pictorial directory will be held December 27th-30th and January 11th-14th. We invite all our members and regular attenders to participate. Lifetouch Photography is offering a new program which will allow us to add pictures frequently without retaking everyone's photo. In addition to the free 8x10" portrait, those who are photographed will receive a new copy of the directory every time it is updated with new photos. Photographs can remain in the directory for up to four years, or may be updated at any time to show family changes. We will likely be able to update the directory at least once each year to help keep it current. Please note that only those who are photographed will receive a directory.
Youth and their friends and family are welcome to join us for a bonfire at the Van Meggelen's home in Deland. Each family should bring drinks and a dessert or side dish to share, folding chairs, and a Christmas tree to burn if you have one.
Parents who believe that their children have exercised saving faith in Christ are encouraged to enroll their children in the communicant's class.

Once classes and examinations are complete communicants will be invited to a reception and received during the Maundy Thursday evening service on April13th.
