2018 Capital Campaign Commitment Card



December 9, 2018

We continue our Advent journey preparing to faithfully and lovingly receive the coming of our Lord.  The second Sunday of Advent is on the 9th.  Our scripture passages for the day will be Malachi 3:1-4 and Luke 3:1-6, with a sermon entitled, “What Shall We See?”  Worship services are at 8 and 10 a.m.  Those who have seen the paper cranes hanging in the sanctuary reminding of the gift of God’s peace will surely join me in thanking those who folded and hung them so artistically.  Thanks also for all who further decorated our buildings during the Hanging of the Greens event.  Thanks also to all who helped with the crafts and the food for that event as well.  Thanks also to those who worked with the Older Adult Christmas Party on Wednesday.

During Adult Forum this week (Sunday 8:45 a.m. in the parlor) there will be video and discussion about the World War I Christmas Armistice of 1914.  The Bible study class led by Dr. Stephen Kim (Sunday 8:45 a.m. in room 108) will continue to focus on the Book of Jonah.

This Saturday, please remember the Theological Book Club meeting at 8 a.m. in the pastor’s office and the memorial service for Rev. Stanley Wherry at 11 a.m. with reception following.

This is a season for giving:

  • Alternative Christmas Gift Market is open all through the Sunday mornings of Advent and at the Advent Fair to purchase ministry items for people in need around the world.  Whether it is farming tools, supplies for displaced students, or winter heating fuel for refugees or something else (there are 13 projects you can help fund at various prices), you can honor someone with a gift given in their name, and you will receive a note card listing the gift to be shared with the person you are honoring.
  • The Village Christmas Gifts project gathers Christmas gifts for families that couldn’t afford their own gifts.  In response for what you have signed up for, please try to bring your unwrapped gifts to be turned in this Sunday, December 9.
  • The Youth ‘Sweet Treat’ Fundraiser is happening to enable our youth to support the church’s capital campaign through sales of cookie jars or hot chocolate jars.  They are available through this Sunday, December 9.

Christmas by Candlelight is the annual community gathering to sing carols with choirs of all ages, orchestra, bells, and organ with a candlelight procession.  Toda la Tierra – All Earth is Hopeful is the theme this year on Sunday, December 16 at 4:30 and 7 p.m.

And so you can make your plans, on Christmas Eve, there will be the Family Friendly Service at 5 p.m., a candlelight service at 7:30 p.m. and candlelight communion service at 11 p.m.

With Advent hope and peace,

Kirby Lawrence Hill
