    If Advent begins the Church Year then Christ the King Sunday ends it. After a year of experiencing the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus in our lives this is a Sunday to profess that Jesus is, in fact, Lord and King of all Creation. As valued and beloved members of Christ’s Kingdom on Earth how do we worship Christ Our King?

1. The Offertory during our worship service is much more than just ‘taking up the collection.’ The Offertory is the time to prepare for communion by celebrating our Oneness in Christ and with that in mind we will observe the Offertory by singing our favorite hymns! Do you have a favorite? Let us know!
2. Our Bible Study group is doing a study of the Gospel According to Mark. It’s a great way to meet the scriptural Jesus. It’s not too late to join us. Our next meeting is Wednesday, December 14, 6:30 in the Ed. Wing. We will discuss Mark 10 & 11.

Q & A from the BCP
Our Book of Common Prayer contains an Outline of the Faith (P.845-62) that forms a framework for the way Episcopalians look at God and God’s work in the World. Each week we will feature a couple of these questions and answers!
Q. What is Holy Baptism?
A. Holy Baptism is the Sacrament by which God adopts us as his children and makes us members of Christ’s Body, the Church, and inheritors of the kingdom of God.
Q. What is the outward and visible sign in Baptism?
A. The outward and visible sign of Baptism is water, in which the person is baptized in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Q. What is the inward in spiritual grace in Baptism?
A. The inward and spiritual grace in Baptism is union with Christ in his death and resurrection, birth into God’s family the Church, forgiveness of sins, and new life in the Holy Spirit.

Finishing and sealing windows at 321 FINALLY COMPLETED!!!
Long-needed work on 321 windows is finished. Thanks to our new contractor Art Tincher and C.J., who drove from Lexington, Ky. for 3 weeks to reseal windows, fix siding and perform several other repairs to keep 321 a beautiful and historic fixture in downtown Jeff. Thanks also to Grayson Shiprek, our neighbor, who allowed access to his back yard for the ladders over that period of time.
A Prayer for Peace
Eternal God, in whose perfect kingdom no sword is drawn but the sword of righteousness, no strength known but the strength of love: So mightily spread abroad your Spirit, that all peoples may be gathered under the banner of the Prince of Peace, as children of one Father; to whom be dominion and glory now and for ever. Amen. (BCP)
