Hello Friends and Family of The Community -

Hard to believe that Christmas is almost here.  It is only 18 days away.  This year and this season has flown by, but we are in gear at TCF to make this a great celebration as well as a great blessing to many people.

This year we are once again providing gifts to children in need here in our our community.  Below is a list of the gifts that have not been provided as of yet.  If you would like to give one of these, chose the child and the gift and email Donna at donnalpratt@gmail.com or call the church at 276-647-8231.

Many of our people have already chosen a child and a gift(s), but these still remain.  Please help us serve these children this Christmas season!

Our annual all church Christmas dinner is set for Sunday, December 16th at 5pm.  Friends, family and anyone is invited to attend, and we are inviting the community who would enjoy the meal and are hungry.  Help us get the word out.  The church will be providing some of the dinner, and each family is asked to bring food (enough for your family and others).  Chose from the following list.  Either email us at info@thecommunityfellowship.orgor sign up this Sunday at church.  Here are the items to choose from:

  • Mac-n-cheese, Potato salad, Macaroni salad, Green beans, Green bean casserole, Corn, Creamed corn, Soup, Chili beans, Baked beans, Deviled eggs, Turnip greens, Sweet potatoes, Broccoli casserole, Watergate salad (fruit salad), Brownies, Cup cakes, Cookies, Cake

Tomorrow is our 2nd Saturday FREE community meal and FREE clothes closet from 9am until noon.  There are actually more items than just clothes that our volunteers are put out to be given away.  Volunteers are needed to serve (arrive at 6:30 and see Shannon or Cathy).  Please pass the word to those who are hungry and in need.

Sunday we continue our Christmas series called THE GIFT as we examine what is in the life of a person who follows Jesus and what is not in their life.  Pray for those who do not know Jesus as we continue to share His love with those who are listening and with those who we serve.

Congratulations to Alyssa Hodges and AJ Harold who are getting married on Saturday.  Alyssa is the daughter of Betsy and Gordon Hodges.  Celebrate with these great people who are part of our church family!

I look forward to seeing you all this weekend.  May God use us to demonstrate the love of God to our community and beyond.  It is time to celebrate Jesus and live out the truth of the Christmas season.

With GOD as my guide,

Pastor Michael Harrison
