NEW BIBLE STUDY TO BEGIN
MONDAY, JANUARY 4
Dr. Jeremiah explains the prophecies of Daniel and what they tell us about the End of Days.
Throughout history, Babylon has been a symbol of the world's worst evils–extreme decadence, infinite cruelty, ravenous power, and implacable contention against God. And nowhere in the Bible do we get a more vivid picture of the malevolent nature of Babylon than the book of Daniel.
Teeming with prophetic markers and visions—many of which have already been fulfilled—the parallels between the world described in Daniel and the world we are living in today are positively staggering.
Dr. David Jeremiah explores the many prophecies, dreams, and visions outlined in the book of Daniel through the lens of its central characters, explains what they mean, and shows us how they apply to the world today We invite everyone to come and join us in an exciting 12-week study exploring this compelling book. The study will start Monday January 4 at 7:00 PM.
If you have any questions please contact Diane Miecnikowski at firstname.lastname@example.org

NORTHPORT FOOD PANTRY
As a member of the Northport/East Northport Ecumenical Lay Council, CUMC has been assigned the month of December to provide volunteers to help out at the Food Pantry in Northport. The Pantry is open Monday-Thursday from 10 AM to 12 Noon. You can volunteer for one day or more during the month. The work is easy, fun and interesting and it provides a great outreach opportunity and way of supporting our local community.
The Pantry is conveniently located in the basement of the First Presbyterian Church at 330 Main Street in Northport with parking available in the back of the Church. Please see Frank Lehmann for details and your choice of date(s) to volunteer. Thanks for your much needed help.
CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICES
FAMILIES with younger children
This is our Christmas Eve geared towards families with young children. Along with the Christmas story read from Luke’s Gospel, Pastor Roy will tell a Christmas story for children of all ages.
This is our traditional service of scripture reading, carols, anthems, and a meditation by Pastor Roy concluding with candle lighting by the congregation.
Candle lighting at both services
will again be sponsoring families this coming Christmas Season. The
sign-up board will be available soon for you to choose a gift/gift card or two
to brighten a family’s Christmas. Please DO NOT WRAP the gifts. All
gifts are to be UNWRAPPED with the corresponding family
number attached to the gift. Please remember to include gift receipts
whenever possible, so that the gifts may be exchanged if necessary.
Donations of wrapping paper and tape are gladly accepted.
If you have any questions, or
would like to help out, please contact Frank Lehmann at email@example.com or

COLLEGE CARE PROGRAM
If you have a college student, please email their current physical address at school and their most used email address to the church office. We use these addresses to keep in touch with them while they are at college (even if they are home and commute) through our College Care Program.
This program is headed up by Lynn Murphy, so you can speak with her if you have any questions. Monetary donations are accepted for this program at any time - it helps to defray the cost of the items we send them, as well as the cost of shipping.
Church Directory Update
We are in the process of putting a new church directory together (in house). If you would like a photo of you or your family included, please get it to the church office at your earliest convenience. You can email, mail, or drop it off. Thanks!
