    Because of the continued health concerns, as you can imagine our Advent and Christmas at Singleton will be different this year. Advent begins Sunday, November 29th. Please let Calvin know if you would like to volunteer one Sunday to light the Advent candles and offer the weekly prayer symbolizing hope, peace, joy and love.

    Once again we will be having our beautiful Poinsettia Tree. This year we invite you to begin bringing in your poinsettia plant on Sunday, December 6th. As the month progresses we will create the poinsettia tree. Email calvin.griffin@cox.net if in honor/memory of/ We will create a weekly list. The Poinsettia tree will take the place of our Chrismon tree this year. This is why we are asking for the poinsettias earlier than normal.

    Many thanks to Gail Claydon who has decorated the church entrances with lovely wreaths throughout the seasons – to Karen Soles, Martha Soles, Kim and Jimmy Williams, the “angel men” and the caring others who have helped and will be helping to provide Singleton with loving beauty.

    Since we are unable to have the angel tree with individual names this year, the women of the church ask you to search your hearts to assist a local family with their Christmas and special needs. The mother passed away from cancer leaving her husband and three boys (12 and under). If your personal budget allows and you are able to contribute, please consider making a monetary donation or providing a gift card to Walmart. Your check can be made payable to the church with Christmas Family written on the memo line or send your gift card to the church with a note designating Christmas Family.

    What do we want to do on Christmas Eve? Please give me your thoughts about a Christmas Eve service. Do we want to have a service? If no, O.K., if yes what type of service? How do you envision the service? The last few years we have sung several songs, but no singing this year. Give me your suggestions and thoughts. Thanks.

    We are offering three ways for you to worship with us.

    1. We will post a worship service on the website each week for those who cannot attend in-person worship. The website is www.singletonumc.org.
    1. We have in-person worship each Sunday at 11:00. We will have some requirements each person must follow to attend the service. Each person must wear a mask at all times and practice social distancing.
    2. As we return to in-person worship, if you are not ready to attend in-person, you can join us by zoom at 11:00 each Sunday. We will send out the information each week.

    We will start a new study on Monday Morning beginning November 16, 30, December 7 and 14. It is a four week Advent study. We will break after the study until January.
