Hey, Maranatha friends:

Another week and we draw ever closer to the birth of the baby who brings us all together. I hope during this crazy busy season you have had at least a moment to reflect upon how fortunate we are to have our church, our class and each other. I know that when I count my blessings, you are right there on the list.

Just a few things to note:

1) Thank you so much for those of you who have signed up to bring mini-muffins, sweet breads, orange juice or milk for us to provide at the All Church Brunch. Remember that you can drop that off in the kitchen whenever you like. Just make sure that it is marked for Maranatha so some hungry soul doesn’t start munching before the brunching!

2) Thanks also to those of you who are going to assemble the casseroles this Friday, December 23rd, starting at 1:00 in the BAUMC kitchen. This will make things so much easier when the first crew arrives before dawn on Christmas morning!

3) For those who want to participate but haven’t yet sign up for anything, sign-up sheets will go around in class again this Sunday. If you want to participate, but won’t be in class, just email, text or call me and let me know how you want to help. We appreciate all assistance!

4) We’ll send out crew assignments next week to those actually working the brunch so you’ll know your station before you arrive. (You didn’t actually think Chief Embrey was going to go into this culinary skirmish without a battle plan, did you?)

5) Still need some ticket sellers around the 2:00, 4:00 and 6:00 services on Christmas Eve, so if you are going to one of those services and could spend a few minutes before and after in the Parlor at our table, we would really appreciate it.

6) We are asking all Maranatha members that will be working the Brunch to purchase tickets so we know the count for food. Yes, the McCanns will be paying $25.00 for the privilege of hauling Molleigh, Larkin and my mother out of bed at 5:00 a.m. on Christmas Day to get to the church by 6:00. But that way, there will be enough food for everyone to eat when the sleepy McCanns are finally awake!

7) I promise not to have another ridiculous idea like this for at least seven years . . .

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