Calvary ready for ‘Born is the King’

The event is Dec. 9, a Sunday, at 9:45 a.m. and again at 6 p.m. in the church sanctuary. The Calvary Choir and Orchestra, as well as the youth and children’s choirs, will perform.
The event is free and open to the community. Child care is available for kids ages 4 and younger. There will be an American Sign Language interpretation of the 9:45 a.m. performance.

Paintball with your church
Morningstar United Methodist Church is getting outside the sanctuary and into the paintball field to raise money for charity.
The church’s last paintball match, which was played on 17 wooded acres, raised $380 to help victims of Hurricane Sandy. The church’s next game is Dec. 8, a Saturday, and people can come to play or just watch. Rentals are available at the location.
For more information and to register to play, call 704-504-8950.
Morningstar UMC is located in Steele Creek, at 11440 Shopton Road W.
