Look (and hear) what the Chancel Choir has planned
The Bear Creek UMC Chancel Choir will present the Christmas musical The Thrill of Hope by Joel Raney on Sunday, December 14, during the 11:00am worship service. This 35-minute Christmas musical is a dynamic retelling of the Christmas story, divided into four parts: Hope, Love, Peace, and Joy.
For each section, Raney has crafted a medley packed with an amazing array of familiar carols. The Chancel Choir will be accompanied by a live chamber orchestra.

Dining at Clay’s? Save those receipts!
If you visit Clay’s Restaurant, 17717 Clay Road, after 5:00pm Monday through Thursday through the end of this year, Bear Creek United Methodist Women has a request for you. Please turn in your receipts to the church office for the UMW treasurer. Clay's will donate 10 percent to UMW.
Have you visited the Angel Christmas Tree in the Sanctuary Narthex? This Christmas season, Bear Creek UMC is once again reaching out to connect with more than 100 Angel Tree children and their caregivers. Your help is needed as we share God's love, our love, and the love of their incarcerated parent with each one of the children.
The tree is filled with angels that request two gifts for each child. Every Angel Tree youngster will receive a clothing gift and a toy or other fun present. These gifts should be in the $20-$25 price range.
In addition to two gifts, each child and caregiver will also receive a stuffed stocking as a gift from our church. There will be angels on the tree requesting stocking stuffers, as well as angels that request gift cards for each family.
If you have already shopped, gifts may be left in the Narthex Sunday, November 30, or Sunday, December 7. You may also leave gifts in the church office through Friday, December 5. All gifts, stocking stuffers, and gift cards must be turned in by Sunday, December 7.
As always, your help with this very rewarding outreach mission is appreciated. If you would prefer to make a monetary donation, please make checks payable to BCUMC with "Angel Tree" in the memo line.
Are you a first-time guest? Claim your keepsake!
If you are visiting Bear Creek United Methodist Church for the first time, please stop by the Welcome Center in the Courtyard after the service to receive a reusable grocery bag which contains a ceramic mug and other goodies.
Additional mugs are available for $5 each and shopping bags are $3 each at the Welcome Center. Proceeds from both items allow Bear Creek UMC to give mugs and shopping bags to our first-time guests.
Be on the lookout in Sunday’s bulletin
Order forms for Christmas poinsettias will be in the bulletin Sunday, December 7. The poinsettias will beautify our Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall during Advent and may be taken home after the 11:00pm service on Christmas Eve.
