ANNOUNCEMENTS

If you are interested in singing in the choir, please join Larry Mick in the sanctuary on Sundays at 5pm, then stay for the 6pm worship service. Childcare is provided for the worship service.


Come help out on Saturday, December 4 from 9:30-11:30am as we “green” the church. We will “de-green” on 1/8/22.


Attention Wayside ladies: Monday night, December 6 is our last Bible study evening for 2021! On that night, we will meet at 7pm in the Fellowship Hall for special holiday treats while we study Ephesians 6:10-24. This section is mostly about the Armor of God, and we will look at a few of the discussion questions from the last chapter in our study book (week 10).


For SMSS Christmas Baskets, we have been asked to provide 54 containers of laundry soap (3 quart size) and 54 jars of peanut butter (48 oz size). A table is set up downstairs in the kitchen area at Wayside, just outside the storage room door, to store donations which can be dropped off any time before December 7. Updated totals: 31 detergents (23 to go!); 36 peanut butters (18 to go!). Contact Marci Cooper if you have questions or would like to help transport the donations.


Remember the Wayside Women’s Christmas Party at Janet Best’s home on Thursday, December 9 at 6:30pm. Please bring a side dish or a dessert (the church will provide turkey) along with the recipe for your dish, so we can snap pictures of all the recipes we really enjoyed! Also, if you’d like to participate in our gift exchange, please bring a gift that is $15 or less that is one of your favorite things; something that would help the receiver get to know you!


Join us for an evening of beautiful music and fellowship at "Christmas on the Mountain" December 17 at 7pm. This concert will be held in the sanctuary.  We will not have childcare for this event.


Thank you for all your prayers in support of Wayside's mission, as we move forward in our new sanctuary building project. We would like to share some exciting information, show a video, and officially launch our campaign on Sunday, December 19, immediately after the 10:45am service. In order to do this with the most people from our church family, we will cancel the 9am service that day and instead make the most of our overflow spaces during the 10:45am service. The meeting won't last long, but we do want to provide some helpful information, general plans, and what this might look like in the near future. Again, thank you for your prayers through all of this!


There will be TWO candlelight communion services on Christmas Eve this year, at 4pm and 7pm. These are whole family services, so there will not be childcare.
