Welcome

Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to the
Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day. Declare his
glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples. For
great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all
gods (Ps. 96:1-4). We are a body of believers in Jesus who put our hope
in God our Savior and praise him continually. It is our desire that you
would experience, in our service today, the love, comfort and
encouragement that Jesus offers each of us. If you are unsure about what
it means to be reconciles to God, it would be our delight to talk with you
about it.

Announcements

After much prayer, discernment, and meetings with leadership
from our current New York State Conference and the leaders of
three other Anabaptist conferences, the leadership team at AMC
believes it would be good for our congregation to pursue joining the
Lancaster Mennonite Conference.  The vote to go in this direction
was unanimous. A formal change in conference affiliation must be
confirmed by the current official members of the congregation by a
two thirds vote.  The congregational vote to accept or reject this
change may not take place until January. More information about
this proposal will be coming to you soon.  We hope to have Keith
Weaver, who preached last Sunday, come back again to talk to
the congregation and answer any questions you may have about
this conference.  In the meantime Keith Weaver and the Lancaster
Mennonite Conference is immediately willing and able to help us in
the search for an interim pastor.  Please continue to pray for our
leadership team.

Please let Pam know if you are willing to help out with children's church.
We need teachers and monitors for the January through June
schedule.  Please pray about it and consider teaching, it is truly a blessing
working with the children.

Looking for someone or a family to decorate the church for the
Christmas holiday season. If you are interested in helping to bless
your church and church family in this way please mark your bulletin
tab or see Lynn Roll

Today’s sermon title is;
“I have a Towel” John 13:4
