The Rev. Stormy Scherer-Berry will give her sermon, "Repeat the Sounding Joy:Loving Joy," at the 9 a.m. worship service at Petersville United Methodist Church on Sunday morning, Dec. 8th.

Liturgist Patsy Harris will share scriptures from Isaiah 11 and Matthew 3:1-12. The service will focus on joining creation and congregation in praising and thanking God. Teresa Covert will give the children's sermon, and the choir will provide special music. Each Sunday in December, the coin collection will be given to the Bishop's Children's Christmas fund.

A time of fellowship will follow the worship service; at 10:30 a.m., the second session of the Advent study, "Almost Christmas-The Wesleyan Way," will begin, led by Pastor Scherer-Berry. All are welcome to the class.

Petersville will be ringing bells for Salvation Army on Tuesday Dec. 17; check with Kathy Bush (376-3501) about participating in this endeavor. At the conclusion of the evening, bell ringers are invited to gather at the church for homemade soups.
