Church News:

Annual Meeting Part 1: The Annual Meeting of First Alliance Church, Hendersonville, NC is held in two parts. Part 1 will be on December 20, 2020 following Sunday Church Dinner. The Budget and the Nominating Committee reports are the only two items on the agenda. All who are part of the church are welcome to attend and ask questions; only members may vote. Please pray for the meeting and plan to attend. (Part 2–Feb/Mar 2021).

Discipleship Class: there will be not adult discipleship class from December 13, 2020 through January 3, 2021.  Class resumes on January 10, 2021. This is a very good time to study the Bible under an excellent Bible teacher–Rev. Dick Kropp.

Christmas Eve Service: We are planning a Christmas Eve Service to celebrate the birth of the Savior of the World, the Lord Jesus Christ, Immanuel. Join us at 6:00 p.m. Christmas Eve either in the sanctuary or at your TV/computer (streaming) for hymns and carols of Christmas and for scripture readings from the Christmas account.

Alliance Women: The meeting will occur on Saturday, December 19, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. Small items are being collected for our shut-ins, money is being collected for a gift for our TCK, and an offering is being received for the AW National Project. Also, bring two small, wrapped gifts (under $5) for a gift exchange at your meeting, and bring some food to share with the group.
