It's musical week!  We've been preparing and looking forward to HOME FOR CHRISTMAS for months and the time is almost here.  Here are just a few reminders about our rehearsal schedule and a few details for the week.

*Wednesday Dec. 9 - Choir/Orchestra Rehearsal in the Worship Center 6:30-8:00 p.m.
*Saturday Dec. 12 - Choir/Orch/Drama Dress Rehearsal in the Worship Center 9:30 a.m. (Cinnamon Rolls at 9:00 a.m.)
*Sunday Dec. 13 - Childrens Choir Sound Check 5:15 p.m.; Orchestra 5:30 p.m.; Choir 5:45 p.m. 

And just a few other notes:
*Bring some snacks or treats and we'll have a fellowship time for choir, orchestra and drama team after the musical in the choir room.
*A couple have mentioned that they do not have red shirts or tops, so let's just go with Christmas colors (red, green, white) and black pants.  *Orchestra folks, let's begin the Sunday morning service this week with "Joy Christmas Medley."

Invite everyone you know to join us this Sunday night - I believe the Lord is going to do great things!

Some signs and symptoms of The Advent Virus:
A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based on past experiences.
An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment.
A loss of interest in judging other people.
A loss of interest in conflict.
A loss of the ability to worry. (This is a very serious symptom.)
Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation.
Contented feelings of connectedness with others and nature.
