Christmas gifts for our staff
As we prepare our Christmas gift list, let us remember our staff. This is an opportunity for us to say, “thank you” for all the support they provide our church throughout the year. We invite your gifts of cash donations or checks (made out to UMC Vista; write in the memo, “Staff Gift”) and place your gift in the Present Box at the end of the service, which will be available in the Narthex, Dec. 3, 10 and 17, or you may place it in the offering plate. We will present your gifts to the staff on Dec. 19. If you have any questions, please see Melissa Giard, Staff-Parish Chair.
Christmas Caroling, December 10
Join us on Sunday, Dec. 10 at 2:00 p.m. for Christmas caroling. Please plan to participate in this wonderful holiday tradition. This heartwarming and fun event is filled with Christmas spirit for the home bound and for us, the carolers. If you have questions, please call Kathy Johnson at 760.560.7150.
Appreciation Luncheon for congregation
The Finance/Stewardship Committee wishes to invite the congregation to a pizza and ice cream luncheon on Saturday, Dec. 30, from 12 noon to 2:00 p.m. There is no charge for the luncheon. There will be a free will offering available for anyone who wishes to contribute to the Pennies For Heaven end-of-year campaign.

Our committee wishes to show our appreciation to our caring congregation for supporting UMC Vista this year. We felt, that by the end of December, you would all have had your fill of turkey, ham and prime rib. We thought pizza and ice cream would appeal to you all. A sign-up sheet will be available in the Narthex to sign up until Dec. 17 (last day). God bless you and hope to see you all on Dec. 30.
