The Pastor’s Perspective

New Restrictions from the Governor

As of yesterday, we are now limited to 25% of our capacity for our worship services.  Since our Sanctuary normally seats 100, our limit is 25.  Please call 424-3622 to make your reservation by Wednesday morning this week.  If we have more than 25 who wish to come, the additional names will be placed on the list for the following week.  If the COVID numbers go down, we can hope for a slightly larger worship service for Christmas Eve, 5:30pm!

Congregational Meeting to Elect Officers

Thank you for staying after worship for our meeting yesterday!  We elected 3 Deacons for the class of 2023 and we elected 2 Deacons for the class of 2021.

For Elders, we elected three members for the class of 2023, one for the class of 2022, andone for the class of 2021.  What a great collection of officers!

Poinsettias for Christmas

We are hoping that folks will bring poinsettias of varying sizes and colors to help make our sanctuary bright for Christmas.  Please email dedication information to:

Angel Tree Giving

The Mission team is pleased to announce that SSPC will be sponsoring an Angel Tree gift-giving opportunity this Christmas season.  Angel ornaments with children’s names and ages will be provided to those who wish to participate.  The counselor at one of our local elementary, will coordinate the Angels.  The team will also be collecting children’s books for the school library.  More information as to dates and other specifics will be forthcoming.  The Mission team is excited to invite everyone to participate in this fun activity!  Stay tuned!

Decorating for Advent/Christmas

Our Sanctuary and Reception area are now beautifully decorated to celebrate Christmas!  Many thanks to those who stayed after the Congregational Meeting to bring color to our church.  Stars in your crown!

Still Room for More

As of the time of this writing, we have plenty of room for next Sunday.  HOWEVER, this is only Monday!  If you really want to be here, please call ASAP (at least by Wednesday, since the office is closed Thursday and Friday).

Men’s Fellowship

We are not meeting this Wednesday, but will take up our Advent study December 3 at 10:00am.  Any men are welcome to join us at any time for coffee, conversation, and prayer!
