In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. . . . The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. – 1 John 1:4-5, 9-10

Youth Group Christmas Party tonight: Please join us tonight to celebrate our Christ’s birth! We will meet at 6:00 pm in the fellowship hall at Messiah and begin with a devotion. The evening will include pizza, soda, and snacks, along with a white elephant gift exchange, cookie decorating, and your choice at one of two stations (to take home) – make a gnome, or a nativity. What is a white elephant gift, you may ask? A white elephant gift is an amusing, impractical gift. The goal is to be entertaining rather than to gain a genuinely valuable or highly sought-after item. Please bring $5 to help cover the costs of the evening, as well as your wrapped white elephant gift. Parents, please pick up your kids at 9:00 pm from Messiah. Please RSVP via our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/events/395125335139056), or to Pastor Schaller or Kari Behlmer, and feel free to contact Kari Behlmer (715-797-2570) with any questions.
The Christmas Tree voting ends today! This year’s art class semester project is Christmas trees. Teams chose a theme and made all the decorations to match their theme. Lots of hard work were put into the creations and we would love for you to take a look. You can also cast your vote for your favorite display! The ballot box is located next to room 114. Voting ends today. Remember to enjoy the art 6 feet apart.
Formal Dinner tomorrow! ~ The Formal Dinner is an opportunity for all to get together for a night of food, friends and fun while dressing up. The Faculty is excited to serve the food prepared by Chef Rodebaugh. The Activities Committee has found a way to carry on the tradition in the midst of the myriad restrictions in place- this year with a country/western theme. Hats off to them! Hope to see you all in the Commons for pictures at 5:45pm., with the evening festivities beginning in the Dining Hall at 6:00 pm. (Townies who attend will be billed the $3 supper fee.)
Christmas Piano & Organ Recital: Make your way down to the gym on Sunday at 3:00 pm to enjoy pieces performed by this semester’s piano and organ students.

Christmas Choir Concert: This year we are doing something unique – the Christmas concert will be held OUTSIDE!!! The forecast gives us the expectation that God’s going to keep this unseasonable warmth going and provide the opportunity to sing without masks! Also, no need to wear the traditional black and white – bundle up in your best warm weather gear, be as stylish or as non-descript as you desire, and prepare to create a really unique and special experience for your guests. The concert begins at 7:00 pm next Friday. Guests: bundle up and bring blankets if you so desire. If convenient, bring your own seating but chairs can be provided for those who need them. Please maintain 6 feet between household groups and either reply to the emailed Google form that’s going out today for contact tracing purposes, or sign in at the Commons entrance when you arrive.
