John Robert Griffith passed away on Sunday, November 16th, at age 93. He had been a member of the Highland Lakes church of Christ for many years and was, at one time, in charge of our sound system. He had served proudly in the United States Army during WW 2 and in the Korean conflict. Graveside services took place with full military honors at the Lakeland Hills cemetery in Burnet on Thursday afternoon, November 20th. Saturday afternoon, November 22nd, a memorial service was conducted at our church building in Kingsland. We want to express our love, condolences and prayers to Johnnie, the children and to all family members and to all who loved John.
COOKIES FOR CHEROKEE!
As is our good habit, we send cookies to the Cherokee Home for Children for their Holiday Party (December 14th). The Ladies Class will pack them up on Wednesday, December 3rd. (Vicky Parr will take them to the Home). After this activity, the ladies will be working on the KID’S CRAFT DAY project, which will be on December 13th. Members, please bring your cookie contribution before Wednesday, Dec. 3rd to the Fellowship Room. They may be store-bought cookies or home-made ones. All of them are welcome and thankfully accepted.
OUR HOLIDAY FELLOWSHIP MEAL
The combination November/December Fellowship Meal is scheduled after Sunday’s evening service on December 7th. As usual, we will have our covered dish meal, and we will once again collect stuffed animals (no sewn-on eyes!) and children’s books for Seton Care-A Van. Come join in the fun, food and fellowship!

HELPING HANDS TEAM ROPING
AG Leather, owner Adam Garcia, is inviting all to the First Annual HELPING HANDS TEAM ROPING, an event that will help the Llano Food Pantries. Team ropers and Barrel Racers will compete for various leather products and cash. Admission for the spectators is free but they are invited to bring canned food items that will profit the area Food Pantries. The event takes place on Saturday and Sunday, November 22 & 23 at the Llano Event Center, 2200 Ranch Road 152. Doors open at 10 a.m. both days. It sounds like a fun event with great benefits for those who are hungry!
KID’S CRAFT DAY
The Ladies Bible Class is sponsoring a KID’S CRAFT DAY on Saturday, December 13th from 9:30 to 11:30 in the fellowship area. All children from the congregation and the neighborhood are invited to come make a gift (and wrap it) to give someone. We would welcome any volunteers who would like to help, especially we need some guys and ladies to greet the parents and enjoy some coffee & cookies with them while their kids are busy. Please pray for this outreach to the community and invite all the kids you are in contact with.
