Advent: The Season of Hope!

The Advent/Christmas season is upon us.  It is a busy time, but here are some activities to enhance the season.

  • “An Unlikely Advent:  Extraordinary People of the Christmas Story” will be our Advent Bible Study this year.  This study takes a close look at some of the unlikely people we encounter in the stories about Jesus’ birth, including Elizabeth & Zechariah and Herod the Great.  There will be four sessions, beginning Tuesday, November 28th, at 10:30 a.m.  Study books are $13.00; if you can contribute to the cost of the books, that’s great. The books are available on the Round Table.   If you have any questions, speak to Susan Goe.  Hope you can join us!
  • Hanging of the Greens – The Worship Team invites you to join them to decorate the sanctuary for Advent/Christmas on Saturday, December 2nd, at 10:00 a.m.  Many hands make for light work!
  • CAMP CHRISTMAS at Ganado Presbyterian Church!  Camp Christmas at our sister church in Ganado is a long-time tradition of the church.  Mingus View has partnered with them over the years to provide the items that they can distribute to their community at the holidays.  Most needed items are blankets; warm coats, hats, mittens, etc. – new or gently used; and personal care items (toothbrushes, paste, etc.) or cash for the Mission Team to purchase items for the gift bags.  Boxes are located in the church foyer to accept your donations, for which we are grateful!  Deadline for donations is December 17th!
