The Living Gift market is today immediately following worship. This is an opportunity for folks to learn more about Heifer International and the work they do with helping those who are hungry and in need around the world. We are fortunate to have live animals coming that represent some of the animals you can “gift” to a family member, friend or loved one. Display booths will also be set up with more information about this worthwhile project. Brochures and price guides will be available at the marketplace.

CHRISTMAS MOVIE: “The Perfect Gift” A heartwarming Christmas tale with a year-round message for the ages. This wonderful Christmas movie will be showing TODAY at 1:00 pm here in the Bourne UMC Sanctuary. Admission Fee: A SMILE! This film is Dove “family approved.” Please join us for refreshments after the show! What if the world threw you a birthday party, and YOU weren’t invited? One day a drifter, Jess, comes into town and changes people’s lives forever by teaching them the true meaning of Christmas and that the best gift of all doesn’t come in wrapping.

Our Family to Family Christmas: We are sponsoring two small families-a 6 yr. old girl and her grandparents, (the grandma is undergoing chemo and radiation for brain and lung cancer) and an 11 yr. old girl and 16 yr. old boy who are in the care of their aunt. Thank you to everyone who has taken gift tickets and offered to get groceries. All the gift tickets were passed out on November 23rd. We will wrap and tag everything on Dec. 14th. Thank you and if you have any questions, please call Marsha Burt 508-759-8364.

FALMOUTH CHORALE: The Falmouth Chorale’s Christmas concert – Homecoming- will be Saturday, Dec. 13th at 4:00pm and 7:30pm and Sunday, Dec. 14th at 3:00pm. All American works will be sung with special guests and the Cape Cod Children’s Chorus joining the chorale. For tickets contact Joan Davis.
