Pine Grove Happenings 11/29/2021

Sunday, November 28th Joys:
Ron Hartman – Many had family come in for the Thanksgiving Holiday which was a joy.
Anita Walker – My joy is sitting on my lap (baby) and I got another one at home and my Mother spent time with us and we had a very quiet Thanksgiving.
Kathy Odell – I am very thankful we got this tree put up and it held together for one more time. I’m also thankful yesterday we had family in and 12 Great Nieces & Nephews spent about 4 hours with us in the afternoon baking & eating cookies & climbing on the cow trailer and we only had 1 band-aid that was necessary.

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 at 6:30 pm.  We will meet at Christi Tucker’s house for a Christmas Party and fellowship.  We will be having light refreshments and a gift exchange game. For those attending, please bring a finger food to share and a wrapped gift (no more than $5). All ladies are invited.
Letting Anita or any UMW member know if you plan to attend would be greatly appreciated.

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 (Hearts with nativity scene).  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.
