Advent Discussion Group

Starting Sunday, Dec. 3
10-10:45am in the Fireside Room

During the season of Advent, we will be focusing on the theme of “Rejoice: Something to Sing About.” Each week in worship we will look at a different character of the Christmas Story and a song to help us reflect on that character. We will also use the book, “Why This Jubilee?” for daily reflections and prayers. The book can be picked up on Sunday mornings or in the office. The weekly discussion group will be a time to share with one another what we found inspiring in the message and book. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday mornings as we sing the songs of Advent and Christmas together!

 

Reverse Advent Calendar

Please join us in our church wide reverse advent calendar project. A reserve advent calendar is different than a typical advent calendar. Instead of taking something out you add an item to the basket each day. The items collected will be given to Foster Families of Orange County.  We will be providing basic, household items for families. These items are much needed and are very much welcomed…especially for relatives who are caring for the children and for the older youth/emancipated young adults. Please stop by the table on the patio to get a basket. Inside the basket is a calendar with suggested daily items.
