The season called Advent continues, and as we near “the time called Christmas,” the celebrations and the obligations and the hurrying and the worrying increase… may you stay mindful of God with us, Emmanuel, the Good News of great joy for all people, in this and every season!
This weekend, our annual celebration of Jesus’ coming is scheduled for Saturday evening, 12/19, beginning at 6:30 PM. Please bring a dessert to share if you can. There will be crafts, caroling, candles and community! Family and friends welcome.
Then, for the fourth Sunday of Advent, 12/20, we gather beginning at 9 AM, when the Singing Ensemble rehearses. Then Sunday School classes for adults and children convene at 10 AM. In worship at 11 AM, we will hear a message from Luke 1, and pray, sing, and wait in quiet together. Fellowship time follows worship, and then our Monthly Meeting for Business convenes at 1 PM.
(And then, re: the image below: The Food Pantry entranceway paving project is finally done! I think the new surface looks like Rice Krispie squares–what do you think?)
