LIVING GRACEful – As we continue in the Advent season, we adopt a new spiritual focus for our worship sermon series. In celebrating God’s Grace and all it means to us in November, we realize that our life response is different because of who He is as He lives through us. Our lives are an extension of God’s so we will explore “Living-Graceful!”

ALL CHURCH CHRISTMAS FELLOWSHIP – Our “Christmas Fellowship” will be TONIGHT, Sunday, December 19th at 7:15 pm. This beautiful fellowship celebrates the hard work layman leaders do all year long. We will worship and fellowship in the Gymnasium. Please bring Christmas finger foods, desserts, and drinks.

FAMILY “CHRISTMAS EVE” COMMUNION – Our mid-week service will be a Christmas Eve Communion Service. We will be taking Communion and lighting the Christ Child Candle! This creative Worship will take place Friday, December 24th! It will be a Communion service and each family will have opportunity to light the Christ child candle in an intimate group. There will be three times to choose from, 6:00 pm, 6:30 pm and 7:00 pm please see the signup sheet in the foyer. As your family begins to gather on Christmas Eve, bring them for a special time of worship as a family! Please see the signup sheet in the foyer.

CELEBRATION WORSHIP – We have a unique opportunity to celebrate the presence of Christ in our lives this year. Since Christmas falls on Saturday, Sunday is a wonderful opportunity to come celebrate together. We have enjoyed a musical Christmas so let’s end the season with a celebration concert. We will have an inhouse concert with both of our praise teams to enjoy this occasion. See you Sunday morning December the 26, Let’s close this year out right!

WELCOME TO
Martin’s Chapel Church of the Nazarene
“Transforming Lives, Restoring Hope”
December 19, 2021

NORTHern MUG CLUB – Martin’s Chapel has joined the NORTHern Mug Club! For less than the cost of a mug of coffee a day, we as a church will be supporting Rob & Cindy North as they serve on the mission field of Africa Nazarene University. Our Mission department has chosen our Sunday Evening Offering once a month during Mission Worship to support these missionaries to ANU. Due to extenuating circumstances with the government of Kenya and COVID, the North’s funding as missionaries has ended. Our $55 a month will keep these servants on the field.

COVID PROTOCOL – With a second wave of Covid hitting our area hard we want to make sure that our people are safe. Please note the following recommendations from the CDC as well as our local protocol:
If you are feeling sick and running a fever, please stay home. If you suspect a family member or work associate has Covid please quarantine yourself as well.
As you enter the church, Hand Sanitizer and masks are available for you to use at your discretion. Please use discretion with hugging and sanitize your hands after hand shaking.

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORD – With school back in session our Children’s & Youth Wednesday program is in full swing. Discipleship is happening on Wednesday nights, do not miss out! Our Holiness Study with Dr. Roberson at 5:00 pm and Proverbs Dialogue “Living Like King’s Kids”, with Pastor David at 6:15 pm provides a midweek Bible study for all ages. This Fall keep your spiritual batteries charged!
