**Thanksgiving Community Service
On Sunday, November 21 at 4:00 pm the Thanksgiving Community Service will take place at Salem United Methodist Church. Pastor Ron Hartman will be bringing the message.

***Put up Christmas Tree in Sanctuary
On Monday, November 22 at 6:30 pm we will be putting up the Christmas Tree in the Sanctuary.  We need lots of Men and Women to help with this!  

The United Methodist Women Announcements: 
UMW Meetings Time Change –  
Our meetings will take place on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm now that Daylight Savings time has ended.

UMW Christmas Party – Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, December 7th.  We will meet at Christi Tucker’s house for a Christmas Party and fellowship.

UMW is Selling Ornaments!-  Order forms are on the table in the back of the sanctuary along with an example of the ornaments we are selling. Contact Anita Walker or one of the other members of the UMW to place your order!

Pine Grove Christmas Musical in December
Practice for the upcoming Christmas musical will be on Sundays at 5:30 pm in the sanctuary. This is the same musical we worked on last year but was cancelled. It’s easy and pretty short.  It is from the Brentwood Benson “Ready to Sing” collection and is mainly Christmas carols. It won’t take a lot to get ready. 
Even if you don’t attend Pine Grove right now, please consider helping us with this.  Please consider coming and enjoy the fellowship and help us give the congregation a special Christmas program in honor of those we’ve lost over these last few months and years as we try to rebuild.
If you want to participate but feel that you can’t make very many practices, that’s no problem. I will get you a book and CD. It’s so easy, it would only take attending one or two practices to be comfortable with it.
The performance is Sunday, December 19th at 5:00 pm with the traditional meal to follow.  This year the meal will be catered instead of covered dish, but Santa has already been invited.
