Do you love “A Charlie Brown Christmas”? This classic will celebrate its 52nd annual airing tomorrow night (7PM, on ABC). A few fun facts about this half hour cartoon:
- The show was directly responsible for killing the aluminum Christmas tree industry (and subsequently making aluminum trees collector’s items on eBay).
- The show had a production budget of only $76,000 (about $500,000 by today’s standards)
- Charles Schulz’s name was initially misspelled in the opening credits.

Just a couple things for this week:
Holiday Services (December 24th and December 31st): This coming Sunday, we will not be meeting at 9am for our normal worship service. Instead, we will gather at 4:30pm for a special Christmas Eve family service.Children will sit with their parents this Sunday; childcare will still be provided for ages 4 and under.
On December 31st, we will have service as usual at 9am. This will also be a family-style service with childcare available for ages 4 and under.
Children’s Ministry 2018 Kickoff Meeting (Sunday January 7th, following church service): If you currently serve as a children’s ministry teacher, or recently signed up to serve, we ask that you join us for our 2018 Kickoff Meeting! Continental breakfast will be provided as our way of saying “thank you” for your willingness to serve our kids and their families.
More than just a fun breakfast, some vital information will also be shared. We’ll be discussing plans for 2018, and also going over some ministry updates that will help you do your best in serving our kids. We strongly encourage all teachers who are able to attend to make plans to do so. If you are a children’s ministry teacher, please RSVP yes/no for the kickoff meeting using this form.
That’s it for this week! See you on Sunday at 4:30!
