Dear Church Family,
Please read below for this week's announcements from Shady Grove:
-Administrative Council Meeting Notice: A called Admin Council meeting to approve the 2021 Church Budget will be held this Sunday, December 6 at 10:15 am in King Street. The budget will be the only item on the agenda. Zoom will be available for anyone not comfortable meeting in person. If you wish to attend by Zoom, email Ashley at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will send you the link. Masks and social distancing are required. We encourage you to attend. Every member present has a vote.
-Breakfast with Santa: Due to the pandemic, our Breakfast with Santa will look a bit different this year, but we are still looking forward to a fun event! Join us on December 19th* from 9:30-11:00am for a free photo with Santa. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be waiting on the front porch of the church to take a picture with your kids! Each family will get time with Santa for pictures, a pre-packaged breakfast, and a bag of crafts to take home. This event is designed to keep all involved safe and healthy, so we ask all who attend to wear their masks. We hope to see you there! For more information, contact Children's Director Ashley Wren at email@example.com.
*In case of cancellation due to COVID-19, please check the King's Kidz- Shady Grove United Methodist Church Children's Ministry Facebook page before the event for updates.
-Food for Children at Piedmont and Mt. Horeb Schools: Thank you for your generous support of this worthy and much-needed cause. Your monetary and food donations are such a blessing! We will be inviting you to volunteer to help organize, package, and deliver the bags to the schools after the Christmas holidays.
-Christmas Cards for Jefferson Park Nursing Home: We are asking our congregation to pick up a Christmas card or cards in the Narthex and write a note to show a resident they are not forgotten in this season of pandemic and to bring a smile to their faces. We need 160 cards returned so that every resident will receive one. Sign your cards with your first name only and include “From Shady Grove Church.” Please bring your cards back to the church by December 20th.
-As a reminder, Adult Bible Study and King's Kidz will not meet this week and will be taking off the month of December. We will see you in January!
-Shady Grove will be holding two Christmas Eve services at 5:00pm and 7:00pm. These services will also be available to watch live on Facebook.
