Tower Tidings for the Week of November 26, 2017

Christmas Rose Brunch
Saturday, December 2nd at 10:00a


Sunday morning, November 26th, will be your last opportunity to purchase tickets to attend this year's Christmas Rose Brunch, to be held on Saturday, December 2nd, 2017, at 10:00am, in Kimberly Hall!

While tickets remain available, they may be purchased for $25.00 each; they will be available on the patio following the conclusion of both morning worship services. You may also call Earlene Clinton, at 909-792-1769, to arrange your ticket purchase.

We also hope you will remember to bake and bring your special holiday recipe to the "Bakery", (Church Lounge), on Friday, December 1st, between 11am and 3pm. You may also bring your gift card to any local fast food restaurant, at the same time, so we may decorate the Christmas tree in Kimberly Hall. Following our Brunch, these gift cards will be taken to Youth Hope in order to provide meals to many at-risk youth in our community.

We hope you will want to join in this yearly tradition, and share your holiday spirit and Christian fellowship with one and all.
