Elm Springs friends and family,
I hope you'll join us this Sunday at 11am in the parking lot! We will be celebrating week 3 of Advent and hearing the Christmas story from the Gospel of Luke. Luke's nativity is 2 full chapters and 132 verses long! We won't read all 132 verses in worship on Sunday, but I encourage you to prepare for worship by reading through Luke's version from start to finish. If we experience inclement weather, we will move to livestream only. Check Facebook or our website on Sunday morning for an announcement about any changes.
We will also be welcoming many new members into our church family! If you've been thinking about joining Elm Springs UMC and want to be a part of what God is doing here, please send Pastor Jennie an email and let her know (email@example.com). If you're already a member at Elm Springs, come and welcome some new (and familiar) faces into our church family.
After many conversations with our Leadership Board, we have decided to remain worshiping at 11am in the Parking Lot through the month of December. I know it's disappointing not to be able to worship in our Sanctuary during the Advent season, but I am thankful to be able to gather safely together and celebrate the hope and anticipation of the coming King!
