CHURCH SCHOOL CHOIR

At the end of Liturgy today we welcome our young singers from the Church School, who will perform Infant Holy, Infant Lowly, While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night and What Child Is This. Thanks to Ilinca, Jessica, Mari, Nathan, Olivia, Sophia and Travis for sharing with us today.



CHRISTMAS OUTREACH

Part one of our outreach program was an extended drive for the Norwood Food Pantry.

The second part of the program is a collection of funds for the refugees and those affected by war and terror in the Middle East, specifically Syria.

Your offering envelope may be used for donations toward Syrian relief, for a monetary donation to the Food Pantry, for your Nativity donation to Saint George, or all three. Donations received through today will be noted in the bulletin on Christmas.



BOX FOR DONATIONS

You will find a "mailbox" in the parish hall, attached to the shelf with the coffee hour notebook and newsletters. For those who write donations checks or take care of other contributions whilst downstairs -- please leave the envelopes in this box, rather than handing them off to someone. The Treasurer or a Council member will make sure everything is collected after coffee hour. This system should make things easy for everyone. Of course, like always, you can leave an envelope in the narthex when you arrive at church, or send in a donation by US Mail.



CALENDARS

The 2015 calendars have arrived and are in the narthex and parish hall. They are sponsored by Kraw Kornack Funeral Home. There is one for each family.



BAD WEATHER

If snow is in the forecast on a Sunday we will always have Liturgy, but depending on the weather it may be best to adjust the time by an hour or so. Notices will be sent by email, posted on Twitter and announced on WBZ StormClosings (Channel 4 and their website.)
