WELCOME TO ALL SHARING TODAY’S SERVICE IN OUR SANCTUARY OR THROUGH FACEBOOK LIVESTREAMING. 
Our livestreamed 10 a.m. service can be viewed on Facebook at other times as well.  An order of service and the pastor’s full message are downloadable from our church website (stpaulucctaylor.org) with a video recording of our worship together also posted by Sunday afternoon.

THIS MORNING WE SHARE COMMUNION, observing an “open” sacrament welcoming all adult baptized Christians with membership in this congregation not required to partake of the bread and cup.  Those worshiping livestreamed at home with us are invited to make use of bread and juice from their household kitchens which will be consecrated and blessed through communion prayer.

Beginning 9 a.m.  Vendors will have items for purchase.  Also, Christian Education is sponsoring a “Just Because Gift Sale” featuring John Deere stuff, mugs with beverages and treats, golf items, fleece throws, Christmas items, snack sets (ideal for hostess gifts), and other interesting items.  Start your Christmas shopping early with best selection at the morning start.
