Christmas FLOCK (Fun-Loving Older Covenant Kids) is Saturday, December 14 at 6pm at the church. This is a much-anticipated, fun-filled pot luck and white elephant gift exchange. It is for those who are 18 and older only. Please bring a main dish and a side or dessert.
To participate in the “white elephant” gift exchange each person should bring a wrapped gift. The gift can be something odd, funny, or quirky….
… or it can be a food gift or gift card or something homemade or a toy or a holiday related item. The gift can be something found around the home, a “re-gift” item, or something you have purchased. However, please do NOT spend more than $15 for a purchased gift.
There will be a Christmas Party for the SRPC College and Career Group on Dec. 21 from 6-9pm at the McNeills’ home. There will be pizza, Christmas goodies, games, a devotional time, and a white elephant gift exchange.
Each person should bring a wrapped gift for the gift exchange. The rules for the gift exchange are that you must NOT spend any money on the gift. It can be something that you already have that you no longer want or need or it could be something you make or a “re-gift”. Get creative.
Also, OPTIONAL, wear your ugliest or cutest or funniest or tackiest Christmas clothes because there might be prizes for such things.
So we can be sure to get the right amount of food and Christmas goodies, please RSVP to Pastor Matt by Dec. 19th.

Please RSVP to Pastor Mang if you plan to have pizza. Please indicate preferred pizza type (cheese, pepperoni, or veggie) giving the number of people who will want each type. Please, also, let him know if you will need nursery for any of your children during the prayer meeting.
