First Sunday

November 26, 2016



Blessings All,


I hope and trust that you all have had a wonderful – fulfilling Thanksgiving. 


This Sunday is the first Sunday in Advent – the first Sunday of a new church year.  We have a lot going on so – here goes ...


Our scripture passages for this Sunday are:  Isaiah 2:1-5 and Matthew 24:36-44 – with a Sermon entitled:  “Re-Purposing.”  Think about an item you may have around the house – designed to do a particular job – and you reworked it to do another job.   (I am not talking about your spouse or life-partner here.)


Following worship and a bit of coffee, Abigail will coordinate an intergenerational  Advent Wreath Making workshop.  There will be some other activities as we join together to bring a piece of the church into our individual homes by making our own Advent Wreaths for family devotional times through the season. 


There will also be a Team of hunters and gatherers venturing out to find, fell and foist our sanctuary Christmas Tree.  We can use a bit more help – just bring some grub/warm clothes and boots and gloves for the annual trek.  We will leave around 11:00.


Tickets will be for sale for the Mission Concert scheduled for December 11th (2-4).  The price per ticket is $10.00 for all over 18.  Ages 6-18 – 5:00 and younger than 6 – Free.  ALL funds raised will go directly toward addressing local mission needs in our area in 2017.


Peace and Joy and maybe a couple of more Tums
