We will sack candy during Sunday School on Dec. 19th. Those attending the Senior Citizen's Christmas party are excused from sacking candy this year.

Pastor's Report:
The High School lunch went well. Bar B Q brisket sandwiches seem like the way to go. They are easy to make and the kids like them.

The Lawton UMC conference was a big success.

The Small Churches Meeting in Elfin was a pretty good work shop.

The Community Service in Snyder went real well. Patrick responded to Herwannah's request to invite everyone to stay and eat whether they brought something or not.

Alba asked if we had found a Santa for the Christmas program since Fred will be out of town this year on the program date. Daryl told her that we hadn't. Syd. burst out it applause which stunned the others into complete silence. My question, "Why do we need to have Santa at a program celebrating Jesus?"

Daryl closed the meeting with a benediction type blessing.
