It is for our own safety and that of the older as well as the vulnerable population.

Message from Wanona, Parish Nurse
December Blessings from your Parish Nurse. I cannot believe 2021 is coming to an end. This year First Presbyterian Church welcomed special births of little angels from above and God has given some of our faith family their heavenly wings. Merry Christmas to all of you! The Strengthening Class with continue every Monday at 10 am and Thursday at 11 am. We will cancel class from Dec 20th to January 6th during the holiday season. I am working on getting life alert pendants through the Cares Act so if interested please contact me. There will be a Sunday BP clinic on December 12th.
Here is a Christmas prayer for you.
Lord, we ask You to grant us peace. Peace in our homes, peace in our churches and peace in our hearts, especially when it feels like the world all around us spins out of control. Help us remember the birth of Jesus, that we may share in the song of the angels, the gladness of the shepherds, and worship of the wise men. Help us stay focused on You, this Christmas time and always. Thank You for loving the whole world enough to send the greatest gift, Your Son, so we might truly have a very merry Christmas, even in a not-so-merry kind of world.
Close the door of hate and open the door of love all over the world. Let kindness come with every gift
and good desires with every greeting. Deliver us from evil by the blessing which Christ brings,
and teach us to be merry with clear hearts.
May the Christmas morning make us joyful to be your children, and Christmas evening bringing us to the end of the day with grateful thoughts, forgiving and being forgiven, for Jesus' sake. Amen.
