Salvation Army Ring Days

Hey Church!

Did you know you are awesome?

On Sunday, December 1, we filled up all but three of our 12 Salvation Army bell ringing shifts for December 21. Also, some CHCCers who couldn’t ring the 21st signed up for another four hours of ringing on other days. We’re up to 16 hours of bell ringing this year!

We still need to fill the 6-7 pm shift at Hy-Vee Johnson Avenue and the 7-8 pm shifts at both the Hy-Vee and the Fareway 16th Avenue for December 21.

Can you help? Contact Scott Drzycimski with the shift you want to take!

The Giving Manger

For the season of Advent, we are including the “Giving Manger” – a daily calendar of things we can do to shine the light of Christ in our community.  Each Sunday in both services, the children will be invited forward to help light the Advent candles.  Next they’ll walk over to the manger.  If they were able to complete one of the Giving Manger tasks, they will get to add some straw to the manger to help prepare it for Jesus’ birth.  We’ll get to watch the manger fill up during the season of Advent.

If you weren’t here Sunday (or lost yours! 🙂 ) here is the Giving Manger calendar.  We’ll have some extra copies at the Welcome Center as well:
