Each year Keele collects and donates personal items to make up gift bags for each of the ladies residing at Evangeline House, which is our local women’s shelter.
This year we are packing the bags on December 8th after the worship service.
All ladies from Keele are invited to join the folks at Evangeline House on December 9, 7:00 pm for the Christmas Party. Please bring some goodies to share!
Calling All Youth!:
Friday December 13th we will be having a Youth Sleep over for Junior and Senior High (and those who are a bit older, you know who you are!).
Doors open at 6:30 pm. Sleep over ends Saturday Morning at 10:00 am, but there is a Christmas Concert rehearsal after that. Bring a sleeping back or blanket and a pillow. Also bring either some snacks or drinks.
Our always amazing Sunday School Christmas Concert will take place on December 15th at 11:00am.
After the service there is a Potluck, so bring your best Christmasy dish!
Come join us for an informal time of reflection and worship this Christmas Eve.
The service gives lots of opportunity for singing carols interspersed with readings and musical specials.
Christmas Eve, Tuesday Dec. 24 @ 6:30pm.

Dear Attenders at Keele: Anyone walking into our building will notice a large leak in the entryway, the leak is actually coming from the peaked roof on the new edition.
In the past few years the shingles have deteriorated to the point that we have lost a good number of them to high winds. Those that are left have cracked and shrunk, and been adversely affected by our pigeon squatters!
As a result we asked for quotes from various roofers over the summer and last week the board decided that, given the quotes, we would have a new steel roof installed. This will give us a minimum of 50 years of trouble-free life. The cost will be $35,000 and with approximately 1,000 pieces required to cover the roof, we are beginning a “purchase a piece” campaign in which families and individuals can purchase their own piece of the roof in increments of $35. We know this is a large expense, but it is also an inescapable expense.
Update: PTL we are at 66% to paying off the roof! Thanks for all your generous support! You are a blessing! With the Lord’s help we will take care of this expense in record time!
