Hello Christ Lutheran!
Four things to keep in mind this week . . .

--- Impromptu Christmas Program! No rehearsals needed for our Children’s Christmas Program happening THIS SUNDAY, at both services. See the flyer below for details!

-- Women’s Christmas Party! The annual Women’s Christmas Party happens THIS TUESDAY. Bring a covered dish to share if you desire. If you’d like to participate in the gift exchange, please bring a wrapped or bagged gift valued at $15.00 or more. It happens at 6:00 p.m. in Zick Hall.

--- Bible and Beverages!  This month we gather at Brian Boru next Thursday from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.  Everyone is invited for conversation in a relaxed, casual setting. You can ask Pastor Dave anything, but questions about Christmas – the event or the theology – are particularly encouraged this month. (Brian Boru is at 489 Ritchie Hwy, Severna Park, MD 21146.)

--- Winter Relief Homeless Shelter! We have responsibility for the Anne Arundel County Shelter on January 3 and 4. Help is still needed at the shelter for both nights – please check out the sign-up board in the church lobby. There are also needs for those who can contribute or bake breakfast foods, snacks, or paper products. Contact Marian Barry (, Steve Zahn ( or Elisa Colburn ( for more information.

No Sermon this Sunday – Christmas Program Instead!

Something to think about between now and Sunday:

-What part of the Christmas story was most meaningful to you when you were a child?

Children and Youth -- Just Show Up!

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 17 ~ 8:15 and 11:00 a.m.

All young people who attend church on the 17th will be invited to be a part of the program in place of the sermon.

No rehearsals necessary!

Costumes, props, and directions will be provided.

Families are invited and encouraged to attend both services so the whole congregation can enjoy the program.

The Sunday School Christmas Party is between Services!

Families who attend both services are welcome to depart after the program in the second service, or to stay for the whole thing!
