Christmas is the single most important day in the church. and in many of our lives.
God has blessed us (I am speaking of us as a community) in countless ways, too many to count. We are blessed with wonderful readers, wonderful advertisers and the greatest employees a boss could ask for.
Speaking of Christmas, this is the last call for the annual Christmas Meal held at United Methodist Church, Lindstrom. The meal is FREE and you are invited to come enjoy some good food with some absolutely wonderful people. They do ask that you please call 651-257-4306 to reserve a space. But if it just so happens that you end up alone on Christmas Day unexpectedly, they encourage you to stop by, you will not be turned away. The meal runs from noon until 1:15 p.m. The church is located on 30828 Irene Avenue. just past the middle school football field/tennis court.
If you are like us, you will have a Christmas party after Christmas. Sometimes there just isn’t enough time to fit them all in. So, if you still have a present to buy, why not a subscription to the Chisago County Press? It is a 52 part gift that comes to their mailbox each and every week for a year. Please call us at 651-257-5115 or chisagocountypress.com.
Thanks to the great folks that put on the Living Nativity at First United Methodist Church in Lindstrom. The weather had everything to do with almost 700 people coming out to see a re-enactmet of the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. That is a absolutely huge number! If you attended, I am sure you would agree the show is very moving and will get you in the Christmas spirit like nothing else.
If your family likes to attend church around Christmas, in this paper on page six, there is a complete list of local churches and their Christmas services. There is a service darn near every hour from early afternoon to a bunch of candlelight services Christmas Eve.
The County Press is always looking for a few more writers. Specifically, we are looking for one or two people to cover some city council meetings, and other organizations. Councils and boards usually meet twice a month in the evenings, so your time comittment would be pretty minimal. There just isn’t enough of us to attend every meeting in our readership. If you or someone you know would like to write for us, by all means give us a call at 257-5115 or email us at [email protected]. We look forward to talking with you!
