Are you already feeling the stress of the upcoming holidays?  Do you dread the “Merry Christmas-Happy Holidays” argument? Are you already persuaded that there aren’t enough hours in the day to do what’s expected of you at Christmas time?  Whether you celebrate Christmas as a religious or a social holiday, it doesn’t have to be as stressful as it often is.

Rev. John Cheek, Pastor of First Presbyterian Church will be offering two 1-hour classes on how to have a simple, stress-free (or at least stress-diminished) holiday season.  The classes will be on Sunday, November 4 and 11 at 9:00 am each day. All who attend are welcome to remain for Sunday worship, but no one is obligated to.

Please plan to join us.  Call us at 575-538-3513 for more information.
