                                       Opportunities and Announcements

The Ronceverte Ministerial Association will be hosting a Community Thanksgiving Service at the Ronceverte First Church of God this evening at 7pm.  The service is in the Fellowship Hall on NORTH AVENUE (between Clay & Elm Streets).  This is a wonderful opportunity for all denominations to gather in thankfulness.

O’Come Share in the Sweetness of the Christmas Season on Sunday, December 4, 2pm at Trinity.  What better way to enjoy this wonderful time of year than gathering with friends to make a Christmas ornament for yourself and one for a shut-in.  For those that wish to participate, we will also have a cookie swap where you bring cookies to share and take some of everyone’s home with you. We will have a fabulous hot chocolate and coffee bar.  It will be a very festive, fun afternoon!

Our Hanging of the Greens will be tomorrow, November 21, at 6pm.  Lots of hands needed!

Due to Thanksgiving on Thursday, yoga class will be on Tuesday this week, at 6:30pm.  Please note it will be back to Thursday the following week.

Let your light help light our communities!


YOU can help shine some Christmas light in our communities.  You can place a specially crafted solar candle in memory of or honor of someone special for only $20 and it will be placed in the church yard at Trinity or at Elizabeth Chapel.  The candles will be placed outside on Friday, December 16, a week before Christmas and remain out through New Year’s Day.  After New Year’s Day you may take your candle if you wish or you can leave it to be donated back to the church to be enjoyed next year.  The more candles we have the brighter it will be.  Trinity candle donations will go to Trinity’s Building Fund to help with loan payments and Elizabeth Chapel candle donations will go to Elizabeth Chapel’s general fund.   Simply fill out and detach the form below marking which church where the candle will be placed, who it is in memory of or honor of, who is purchasing it and total amount of the check enclosed.  Then mail it to the church office at 373 Pocahontas Avenue, Ronceverte WV  24970 or drop the form and money in the offering plate by no later than Wednesday, December 7.  We will have a page on our website that lists all memorials and honorariums (, we will include in the RC Blast, include it in the bulletin and there will also be a complete list in the next issue of the Ecclesiagram for January-February.
