As dreary as today is, the church is looking festive. The mailbox is decorated, wreaths (with Advent-purple bows) are hanging from the doors, and the Advent wreath is decorated a little more each week. This Sunday, the third of Advent, we will light the pink candle that symbolizes joy.
In Sunday School this week we will complete our series on the women in Jesus’ family tree with a discussion of Bathsheba and Mary. Join us at 9:30 in the Founders’ Room.
Remember that we are still collecting coffee (ground, no decaf), bags of sugar, and hot chocolate mix for Church of the Common Ground. We’ll be collecting through December 18.
If you’d like to donate in thanksgiving for or memory of someone for the special Christmas flowers and music, please turn in your check with information by December 18.
