Advent is the season the church sets aside to prepare for the celebration of Christmas. This season lasts for 4 weeks and begins this year on December 3. There are many activities and resources available to help make this a meaningful season for you and your family. The following resources will be available to you in the narthex or outside the church office: A listing of all the activities of the season at Steele Creek; Advent devotional books for adults and children; Supplies to refresh or make a new Advent wreath for your home.
Our hope is that you will be able to set aside some time to worship and reflect on the true meaning of this Holy Season-the birth of Jesus Christ our Savior!

The Ashe County Christmas Party will be on Saturday, December 16 at 11:00 am. Any gift that you would like to give to the children in the mountains will be much appreciated. There will be a wrapping party on Thursday, December 14 at 10:00 am. --Thank you, Marion Briggs.

Mark your calendars for the annual Birthday Party for Jesus, Saturday December 16th at 10:30-11:30. All children, three years old through elementary school are invited. We will have crafts, celebrate the story of the birth of Jesus and what's a birthday party without a special snack. Please bring a new, unwrapped toy for our Levine Children's Hospital toy drive.

Every year on Christmas Eve here at Steele Creek, members, neighbors, and friends come to celebrate the birth of Jesus. At 6:30 we will gather for the Love Feast. In this family friendly service, we hear a Christmas message, sing carols while we share Moravian cookies and cider. At the end of the service, as the lights are turned down, everyone lifts a candle to the glory of God. At least 28 people are needed to prepare or serve the cookies, cider and candles for this service. Volunteers are asked to come at 6:00 for an easy training session. To volunteer, call the church office.

The Pastoral Care team has printed an updated Church Directory. If you would like one, please call  the church office).
