Hey, Maranatha friends:

Several important items to note for the next few days:

1) If you signed up to bring gifts for children with incarcerated parents or the Exodus House program, please bring them to class this Sunday, 12/11, or contact Sharon Earley to make other arrangements.

2) Scott Morgan is representing Maranatha at the Christmas Party for Exodus House on Tuesday, 12/13. We have a gift for Terri Thomas, our resident, and Scott will give it to her that night. Scott has asked that class members bring Christmas cards for Terri to class this Sunday and he will take them to the party to give to her. If you prefer, you could mail a card to her instead. If you would like to attend the party, please contact Sharon Earley.

3) We have permission to sell tickets to our All Church Christmas Brunch before and after the 2:00, 4:00 and 6:00 services on 12/24 in the Parlor. If you could be available to sit at a table in the parlor and sell from 1:45 to 2:00, 3:00 to 3:15, 3:45 to 4:00, 5:00 to 5:15, 5:45 to 6:00 or 7:00 to 7:15, please contact Jim Embrey.

4) We need class members to make Christmas breads or small muffins for the sweets table at the Brunch. You can make them at home and drop them off at the church anytime during the week of 12/18 through 12/24. If you are going to be doing so, please let Angie know so she will know if we will have enough, or have to spend class funds to purchase breads and sweets.

5) We also need class members to bring containers of orange juice and milk for use at the Brunch. These can also be dropped off at the church anytime during the week of 12/18 through 12/24 and stored in a special spot in the church refrigerator. If you are going to do so, please let Angie know so she can keep track of quantities and determine whether we need to spend class funds to purchase extra juice and milk.

6) We will be having Casserole Day on 12/23 in the church kitchen, starting at 1:00. This is when we will make the casseroles that we will serve at the Brunch. Anyone is welcome to come help cook them, male or female – the more the merrier! Please let Angie know you are coming so we can be prepared for all our chefs!

7) Our speaker this week is Michelle Place, our prayer will be by Lynn Jessee Russell, and our snacks will be provided by the Manduanos and the Russells.

8) Scott Solomon is still undergoing a rigorous week of evaluation at Craig Hospital in Englewood, CO, so he hasn’t yet begun this program of therapies. However, the doctors told him that because his core was so fit and strong, he is capable of learning to scuba dive. Scott is very pleased! Our tree was delivered and Dana seemed to like it. Our other two plans are in the works, but I won’t discuss them here since Dana and Stuart will read this email! Thank you to Maranatha for all your love and support.

So sorry that it wasn’t a full email, but client needs had to come first this week. But excitingly, Dan Blevins has agreed to be the Newsletter Editor for 2017, so you will hopefully not have any dereliction of duty like you have had from me! Our last position was also filled as Scott Gardner & Jim McCann agreed to reprise their roles as Auction Chairs again. Maranatha has a full set of officers for 2017!

Remember that you are appreciated, enjoyed and admired by your class members.
