Today’s Scripture Reading: Advent Reading

Today’s Message:  Luke 1:39-80 "Praise and Prophecy"

Tonight: Christmas Play & Musical Presentation

Thursday Night: We continue in Mark

Christmas Play & Musical Presentation: Tonight at 6 p.m., the youth of Calvary Chapel Maine Highlands will present “All I Want for Christmas is Jesus”.  Refreshments will follow.  Invite a friend or family member!  There will be play practice after church today.

Wednesday night prayer will not meet during the month of December.  We continue our prayer time on Sunday nights after Bible study in Psalms.

There will be no Christmas caroling this Thursday.

Changed Dates for Ladies’ Bible Study: In December, we will be meeting on the first and third Tuesdays instead of the second and fourth Tuesdays.  Our next class will meet on December 21, at noon.  We will be in 2 Peter, Chapter 2.  Study guides are available on-line under the Women’s Ministry page at the Harvest Christian Fellowship web site, as well as on the resource table.

Operation Christmas Child: If you did not get a chance to fill a shoe box for this Christmas but would still like to, you can go to, where you can “Send-a-Box”, where OCC will pack and ship a shoe box with your donation of $35, or you can “Build-a-Box”, where you can select gifts and personalize your own shoe box.

Children’s Ministry Need: Snacks for the nursery and Sunday School are in need of replenishing.  Containers of pretzels, goldfish, animal crackers, graham crackers, etc., and bottles of juice or cans of juice concentrate would be greatly appreciated.  Please bring any donations to the Sunday School classroom.  Thank you so much for your generosity!

Bad Weather Cancellations:  Should any Calvary Chapel Maine Highlands service or event be cancelled, an announcement of the cancellation will be broadcast on WJCX 99.5 FM and WLBZ-TV (Channel 2 in most areas).  The cancellation announcement will also be posted to the church homepage and church Twitter account:

Tithes and Offerings:  We do not pass an offering plate during our services, but encourage all who attend regularly “whose hearts are stirred and everyone whose spirit is willing” to place your offerings in the dark walnut box on the back table. (Exodus 35:21; Malachi 3:10)
