City Church Announcements, 11.24.09

*NEW* Musicians needed! The music teams at City Church are always eager to add musicians and vocalists to help lead our worship. We are in particular need of percussionists. If you are interested in learning more about serving the church in this way, please contact Jon Marc Haden at haden.jonmarc [at] gmail.com. No Children's Worship on Sunday There will be no Children's Worship at Sunday's service. However, the nursery will be open as usual. Mercy Fund, 11/29 On the final Sunday of each month we take up a special mercy fund offering. Whatever is given will be kept separate from our general budget and will be used to aid those in our congregation, and in our community, who have emergency needs. Please prayerfully consider what you might give. But don’t feel that you have to give --- it really is an opportunity for regular attenders to invest tangibly in what God is doing here.

*REMINDERS* Richmond Missions Trip, 12/11-12/13 City Church of Richmond is taking a weekend missions trip in Highland Park on December 11-13th! As we cross geographic, economic and social lines in our city, our hope is to serve the community in the name of Jesus, learn from others who bear God’s image, and partner with local ministries in the neighborhood. Join us as we work alongside the Northside outreach center, Boaz and Ruth, and Grace Community Outreach Church! The trip will cost $25 and will have limited spots. Contact Matt Fisher (mattmoment [at] gmail.com) to sign up. Please sign up by November 29th!

Advent Hymn Sing led by Alex Mejias, 12/4, 7pm Alex and his band will lead us in singing Advent and Christmas hymns in a service that will also features Scripture lessons. This will take place at 822 W. Franklin Street (the building where we have our regular church service). We will be hosting a reception immediately following the service and are looking for volunteers to bring drinks and snacks. If you're interested in helping out, please contact Jennifer Walker at jennifer.p.walker [at] gmail.com or 804-516-8278.

Have a great week!
