Announcements for Sunday, December 9, 2018

Children's Christmas Program: A huge thank you to Angel Lee, Mary Kay, Ramona Rodila, and all those who worked with our children to present their Christmas program today! What a joy and blessing to see them celebrating the wonder of God's Grace and Mercy!

2019 Leadership/Budget Info Sessions: There will be two meetings today at 12:30pm (in English) and 1:00pm (with translation) to provide more information on the proposed leadership slate and budget. All are welcome to attend either meeting, as well as speak with any of the current Deacons with questions or concerns. Please keep this planning process in your prayers.

Membership Meeting: The annual church membership meeting will be on December 16. At that time all members of our church will have the opportunity to affirm the 2019 leadership and budget. If you are a member and will not be present for the meeting, please see Tommy Koo for an absentee ballot.

Pre-Christmas PADS: PADS provides food and shelter for homeless women, children, and men over the winter. Next Sunday (12/16) at 1:30 pm we will assist the First Presbyterian Church in Deerfield by setting up 48 sleeping mats and a children's play area. Please contact Sylvia Chen (630-708-7257 mobile) if you are interested in helping. The process typically takes about 60 minutes.

First Night: Together with the Chinese Congregation, we will once again celebrate First Night on New Year's Eve with a fellowship event at our church. Please mark your calendars and look for more details next week.

Flowers in January: We need help in 2019 coordinating flowers for the Sanctuary from January to June. See Pastor Mike to help.

Chair Shawn Yu

Secretary Betty Hsieh

Treasurer Tina Cheng

Missions Sylvia Chen

The Deacons propose a 2019 Budget totaling $698,265. More details are available at the information desk in the church lobby. There will be two information meetings on Sunday, December 9 at 12:30 and 1:00 to provide more information on the proposed leadership slate and budget. All are welcome to attend either meeting as well as speak with any of the current Deacons with questions or concerns. Please keep this planning process in your prayers.

Offering Counter: The Church Financial Secretary would like to have a member of the English Congregation to help with the official count of offerings in 2019. If led, please contact Tommy Koo for more information.

Offering Reminders: As you contemplate end-of-year giving, please keep in mind that in order to receive a tax-deductible receipt for 2018, the church must receive your donation by December 31. If you would like to donate stock, or if your company offers matching donations, please send a note to Parry Lau ( treasurer@nsccc.org ) prior to the transfer or match request so that donations can be approved and processed in a timely manner.

Teachers Needed: Children's Sunday School needs teachers for pre-k, age 2-3 for the Winter Quarter starting in December. Please pray for more Bible learning teachers for our children. See Angel Lee for more information and to sign up.
