11/29/18 Advent Is Here

This coming Sunday begins the season of Advent — that beautiful season of longing, waiting, and preparation. It leads us to the holy day of Christmas. But it is more than that. It is about preparing for the many ways God comes to us. It is about training ourselves to be alert to the spirit. 
 
December 2 — 
 
We will have Commitment Cards on Sunday. Your Leadership Council wants to do careful Financial planning for the year ahead but we need your help. Would you fill out a Commitment Card this Sunday that informs the Finance Team what you Intend to give per week or per month in 2019. This will be kept private but will help the Council to estimate our income for the year. 
 
Finally this Sunday evening, December 2nd, is Dinner and Church Decorating at 5 PM. Come share in a simple meal and help us decorate the building for the seasons of Advent and Christmas. 
 
Advent Blessings,
 
Steve
 
Worship in Advent – Our theme this season is Interruptions. I was always taught as a child not to interrupt others. But it seems to me that life is full of interruptions. Our plans are always being interrupted. Maybe God interrupts us quite often. Is Christmas an interruption?
