Yes, No, Wait – Similar to Mother May I but the answers can be yes, no and wait. When you are told to wait, you must ask the same question on your next turn until you get yes or no as an answer. God’s timing is perfect and is sometimes not what we are wanting. Discuss how Lazarus’ sisters must have felt.

Song – Glorious Day by Passion


December 5th is our members meeting where we will vote in the budget as well as celebrate what has happened in the past year and look forward to what is coming soon. Since our children are not typically interested in numbers and presentations, CloughKids will be hosting a separate service for the kids. During our time together we will be painting a Christmas keepsake, digging into scripture and worshiping our God through song. Sign up your child to attend this fun filled worship service here.
