Christmas Gala to Benefit Haiti Missions: Saturday, December 14th at 6:00 PM, Vacationland Inn, Brewer.  Proceeds will support the next Ebenezer Outreach trip to Anse-a-Foleur, Haiti, which will be providing free dental care, outreach to local children, and community evangelism.  Treat yourself to a glamorous night of live music, dancing and Hors d'oeuvres, while you learn about how your generosity will help the charitable work that is being done in Haiti. You can even finish up some of your Christmas gift shopping at our silent auction!  This event is free and open to the public, although your donations will be greatly appreciated.  

Storm 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-2.  The cancellation announcement will also be posted to the church homepage and church Twitter account (@ccmhtweet).

Calvary Chapel Women’s Christmas Celebration:  Join us at Calvary Chapel in Orrington, Tuesday, December 10th at 7:00 PM with special guest Genevieve Falleur for Christmas music, a devotional, fancy pastries, coffee and tea.  The cost is $10.00.  Pre-register online at ccbangor.org.  Let Michelle know if you are going: some of us will be carpooling and having dinner in Bangor before going to the church.

Moms-In-Prayer:  We will be meeting regularly on the 1st & 3rd Tuesdays each month from 6:00 to 8:00 PM with prayer starting promptly at 6:15 PM (until 7:15).  All MIP meetings will normally be at the home of BettyAnn Homchuck.

Bring in your old eyeglasses: If you have old eyeglasses you don’t need bring them to church and they will be given to EPI ministry to re-distribute on a missions trip.  Thank you!

Children’s Music Program for Christmas Sunday:  If your child will be singing in the children’s program on Christmas Sunday, December 22nd, we will be practicing Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM before the morning service.  See Kellie Reardon for more information.  Families are invited to join us for lunch after service and then go to Pleasant Meadows Assisted Living at 12:30 as the children will be sharing special Christmas music.  

Sunday Children’s Ministry:  We now offer two Sunday School classes for children ages 4 to 7 and ages 8 to 12.  Don’t forget to sign your child(ren) in before church.  The sign-in form is located on the resource table.  Both groups will be dismissed to their classes after worship.  Nursery is available for infants through age 3 during the entire service.  Please pick up your children from Sunday School/Nursery as soon as possible after the service so teachers can begin cleaning up their classrooms.  Thank You!

Pleasant Meadows Ministry: Join us at Pleasant Meadows at 12:30 today.


Minimizing Distractions: To the extent possible, please stay seated once the teaching begins; and please turn off or silence all communication devices.

Free Will 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 walnut box on the back table. (Exodus 35:21; Malachi 3:10)
