Presbyterian Sunday School To Present Annual Christmas Pageant

Rev. James Shanley, pastor of the Presbyterian Church of Mountain Top, invites you to worship on Sunday, Dec. 18, at 11am.

The Sunday School will present the annual Christmas Pageant. Sunday School will begin at 9:30 with classes for all ages available. The children will have their final practice before the performance. The adult class meets in the Sunday School room under the guidance of Elder Wes Mullen. They will be studying the book of Acts with visual aids from the Visual Bible Book of Acts. After the performance on Sunday, a light refreshment will be served in Fellowship Hall.

The children will have dress rehearsal on Sat., Dec. 17 at 10:30 am.

Pastor Shanley will lead an Advent Bible study every Wed., at 7 pm until Dec. 21. This weekly Advent Bible Study will be based on the book by Max Lucado; Because of Bethlehem. Books are available to order, but are not necessary to join the study. Prepare for the coming Christ Child by joining this church wide study.

The Christmas Eve Candle Light Service will begin at 7 pm on Dec. 24. Come early for a good seat.

Please continue to donate your food items weekly to be given to the Mountain Top food bank. Bins are located at the rear of the Sanctuary. The need is great for packaged items, mayonnaise, coffee and sugar and peanut butter. There is a special need for pork & beans, canned tomatoes and red beets.

The choir under direction of Bill Blannett practices Thursday at 7 pm. If you are interested in sharing in this awesome Ministry of Music, just show up on Thursday or talk to Bill at church. The Children’s Choir, directed by Ceil Blannett and Susan Malkemes, practices each week after Worship for about 15 minutes.
