WELCOME AND BLESSINGS TO YOU! You are in for a treat this Sabbath – a Christmas treat. Members of the congregation are presenting “A Celebration of Lessons and Carols” for our worship service. So relax and enjoy beautiful music and scripture readings as you contemplate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah.
TODAY’S POTLUCK is our annual Christmas brunch. Thank you to all who brought food and helped with the set up and clean up. This is a lovely tradition here at Bellevue. Potlucks are held on the first and third Sabbaths of the month and are usually immediately after church.
TODAY IS THE LAST CHANCE to order 2018 devotional books at the special discount. Please check out the display in the foyer. Just write your order on the form at the table, then put your payment in the envelopes supplied and place the envelope in the offering bag. When the books arrive, you can pick them up at church as soon as your payment is received.

“CANDLELIGHT COMMUNION SERVICE” IN RENTON – Join Renton SDA Church for their annual year-end communion service by candlelight with Agape feast Saturday Sabbath, December 30, at 4:30 pm! A wonderful time of looking back with thanks on 2017 while looking forward to the new year.

SAVE THE DATE! – KSDA’s wonderful fund raiser the International Food Fair will be on January 13, 2018. Money from this event goes to the Tuition Assistance Program.
SAGE MISSION TRIP – Next month, SAGE is going to Costa Rica! Please keep these hard-working folks in your prayers as they make final preparations for this undertaking. It’s a big job to make sure everyone gets to the project location and back home safely, and to feed, shelter, and supply them while they’re there.
FLOWERS – As you start making plans for the coming year, think about what special events you want to share with your church family by way of providing flowers for the sanctuary on the Sabbath nearest the event. A schedule is posted on the bulletin board where you can reserve your Sabbath. Then contact the person in charge of flowers for that month to let them know what you want to do. Finally, let the office know what you’d like in the bulletin.
