Holiday Exchange Market
United Way’s Holiday Exchange Market is coming up! The Missions Committee is helping to coordinate support for the event this year. A major, and always FUN component of this is the mitten board project, and we have had a great response. There are still mittens available in the lobby. Volunteers will are needed to help set up the market at CMC on Friday, Dec. 15. Sign up at Routt County United Way.
Christmas wreaths have arrived!   
Wreaths will be available for pick-up after church in the Fellowship hall. If you won't be at church this Sunday, contact Sharon at 879-1154 to pick up during the week.
Confirmation Class
Any youth interested in participating in our confirmation program (6th - 12th graders are eligible) should talk to Taylor ASAP or sign up on the sheet outside the offices.
Handymen and Women Needed!
Volunteers are needed who are willing to help fellow parishioners in need of light "handyman" duties on occasion, nothing beyond your comfort level. An email would be sent to you as the need arises, and if you can help that would be great. Contact Laurie. On the flip side if you need a helping hand with something short of a paid contractor, please let us know.
Fellowship Groups
Sign up in Fellowship Hall for groups. About 10 people meet monthly in someone`s home for a delicious potluck dinner, great conversation, and lots of laughs. Sign up even if you will miss some of the months or if your home is too small for hosting. It's a good way to make new friends and get better acquainted with others in the church. Questions? Call Penny Deihl at 871-1750 or send an email.
Heart of Steamboat Event Series
We are beginning a new series of events designed to combine our stated pursuits of congregational engagement, community inclusion and spiritual awareness with celebration of our newly-expanded facilities. The Series will produce 3-4 events each year highlighting local musicians and ensembles, engaging interfaith communities and sponsoring spiritual discussions of interest to the congregation. For more info or to volunteer at events, talk to Keri (Choir Director) who is coordinating the series.

Altar Flowers
The Sanctuary Design team now has a "flower fund!" You can help support the creative magic with a donation towards flowers, and we'll do the legwork for you! To contribute, you may put a donation in the envelope by the sign-up sheet in the main hallway. As always, if you 'd like to honor someone special or an important occasion on a specific date, we will continue to highlight that in the weekly bulletin. Thanks for your support - contact Laurie for more information.
Prayer Chain
As a body of believers who care for each other, our community and the world around us, we embrace prayer as a powerful and deeply meaningful part of our faith. Through our active prayer chain network, we seek to lift up one another in prayer during times of difficulty or need. If you would like to be a part of the prayer chain or have a specific prayer request, we encourage you to contact us - email Laurie Edwards, Pastoral Assistant.
The Prayer Chest
equests for prayers can be left in the prayer chest under the altar or placed in the offering plate.
