Dear Members and Friends of Elmwood Baptist

November has been a good month for Elmwood Ave Baptist. We were well represented at the Living Waters Laity banquet hosted by Elmira First Baptist. It was held at Trinity Episcopal Church in Elmira. A concert violinist provided the entertainment and played a variety of musical genres. Connor Viele received recognition for outstanding service to his church. We are all grateful for his expertise in so many areas such as his working knowledge of our audio/visual components. 

Also earlier in the month we had Elmwood’s Annual Harvest Dinner. Nobody had to go hungry during November! 

Our baptism workshop will be rescheduled for sometime after Christmas and New Year's. That really bad storm forced us to make that decision. Road conditions were quite dangerous.

For December we look forward to our Advent season which includes decorating the Sanctuary and our Christmas Eve service. We want to encourage  everyone to enjoy this time of year and remember that Jesus is the reason for the season!
