This Sunday the choir and children will present the cantata "Share the Good News! He is Born". They've been working behind the scenes for a few weeks to get ready for this Sunday, so I hope you can be here. There are many ways to tell the Good News, and music is one of them. I know it will be a great Sunday! The new handbell choir will also play.

Don't forget, Christmas Eve is on a Sunday so we will have a morning service at 10:30. This will be a fun service and afterward, Santa will be here for pictures. Invite your friends and family, especially children and grandchildren, to join you! Santa will read "The Night Before Christmas" and lead a couple of carols if there is time. In the evening, we'll worship at 5:30 for the traditional service of lessons and carols and candlelight. This is a beautiful service and a wonderful way to begin celebrating Christmas. I hope you can join us.

And finally, this Sunday the Gateway Ringers will have a concert here at 4:00 pm. Gateway Ringers is St. Louis' select group of handbell ringers. You'll want to hear them and "ring in" the season with them. I'm looking forward to it!
