Advent 2

December 5, 2015

 

Blessings all,

 

The church is decorated for the season and we are moving our way through Advent.  Tomorrow’s scriptures are;  Philippians 1:3-11 and Luke 1:68-79 with a message entitled:  “And You, Child, Will Be Called ...”

 

Jenny and Jas will be lighting the Advent Candles this week and we will share in Communion. 

 

The children will be practicing the Pageant during Sunday School time and following worship at 11:00 Chessy Kelley will be leading a Meditation Workshop in the sanctuary.

 

Also at 11:00, anyone considering joining the church is welcome to bring a cup of coffee upstairs across the bridge into the Manse for a time discussion.

 

Child Care will be provided.

 

The Giving Tree is set up on the bulletin board in the Fellowship Hall.  If you wish to purchase a gift for a local person you may select a gift idea from the tree and purchase it this coming week bringing it back wrapped and labeled by the 13th.  This is a great opportunity to share the season of giving with children, teaching them that we do not need to even know the person who will be receiving the gift for the Spirit of Christmas to happen. 

 

The 2016 “Estimate of Giving” cards (pledge cards) are in the pews if you wish to use them and the Deacons will be receiving their monthly offering to support the work they do (which includes providing for the Meditation Time). 

 

A lot going on

 

I hope to see you tomorrow.

 

Peace to you all

 

Gary
