We would also like to welcome any who are visiting today, and we have a special gift for you at the Welcome Center in the entryway. Feel free to stop by for further information about what we believe and who we are as a church.

ELDER BOARD COMMUNICATION
As a result of our most recent Town Hall Meetings, the Elder Board would like to announce that our new staff position will be a pastoral position. Thank you for your participation in this process. We look forward to serving our community as God leads in the 5-Year Plan.
AN ADDITIONAL SERVICE IN 2016!
We are excited to announce that beginning January 10, we will be adding an additional worship service to our weekends. You can join us on Saturdays at 6:00 PM or on Sunday mornings at 9:00 or 10:45 AM.
We see this additional worship service as one way to realize our dream that everyone in our community would experience God’s love, through the people who make up Aspen Ridge Church. We are encouraging our people to worship in one hour and serve in another!
We believe that this is an excellent opportunity for many to participate in corporate worship each week and also (potentially) serve in a ministry area well. All areas of ministry are growing and could use your assistance. Please prayerfully consider where you can serve. Areas of opportunity include Children's Ministry, Students, Greeters, Ushers, Security and others. Thank you for praying for a fruitful and effective additional service.
BIRD IS THE WORD
Our sincere thanks to all who participated in our community Thanksgiving dinner, Bird is the Word. We served over 300 dinners and saw many new faces! We would especially like to thank Ken Pfeiffer and Diana Blake for their hard work and leadership. To God be the glory!
VOCAL ENSEMBLE OUTREACH
Please keep our Vocal Ensemble in your prayers as they practice and prepare for two outreach opportunities on December 8. They will be performing at Elk Run Assisted Living and also at the Life Care Center in Evergreen. You will be able to hear them during weekend services in December and on Christmas Eve at Aspen Ridge, as well.
CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICES
Our Christmas Eve services will be held at 3:30 and 5:00 PM, and we would love to celebrate this special time with old and new friends, rejoicing in the birth of Jesus and in our “family tree.” Invite a neighbor, and we’ll see you there!
WEDNESDAY NIGHT MENU
Our menu this week features minestrone soup, salad and dessert for $2.50 per person or $10 per family. See you there!
