Hot Lunch this Thursday, December 18th !
The PTF ladies will be serving that traditional Christmas favorite, tacos, as well as fruit and a dessert!

Calendar Correction
There was an error on the school year calendar distributed at the beginning of the school year. In February of 2015 the two days of for the Alaska Conference of Pastor and Teachers that was scheduled on the calendar for February 2 and 3 should instead be February 12 and 13. Again, we will be having school classes on February 2 and 3. There will be no school classes on February 12 and 13. My apologies for the error.

Do you need winter clothing or have winter clothing that you no longer need?  A Winter Clothing Exchange is taking place in the fellowship hall from now until December 22nd. Please see the attached flyer for details.
We also have used uniform shirts, pants, and jumpers available in various sizes. They are in a box on the exchange table. Please feel free to help yourself.

Midweek Advent Worship
This Wednesday, December 17th, we invite you to join us for our last midweek Advent service at 7:00 p.m.   There will be a soup supper in the fellowship hall prior to the service. The supper begins at 6:00 p.m.  We ask that you bring your favorite soup or salad to share. Bread or desserts are also welcome.  Don’t worry if you are unable to bring anything, come and join us anyways! We look forward to seeing you there.

This Friday, December 19th is our school Christmas service, “Children of the Heavenly Father” presented at 6:30 p.m. in the recital hall at the UAA Fine Arts Building. This is a school function where the students will be presenting the service. All Faith students are expected to be in attendance. The students put much time and effort into preparing for this special opportunity to share their Christmas joy with you! Plan to enjoy this special worship opportunity with your family as part of your Christmas celebrations.

If classes are cancelled due to weather conditions, announcements will be posted on our
