Gaywood Holiday Gift Collection
As you may know, we partner with Gaywood Elementary School in Seabrook to provide assistance for Gaywood families in need of food support. Currently there are six families in our food program, and this holiday season we would like to give the children in each of these families a gift. See the sign-up sheet in the narthex for additional information; if you wish to participate in this project, take a tag and write your name in the appropriate space. Gifts should be wrapped, marked to identify which child they're intended for, and brought to church no later than December 19. Thank you!
An Invitation to Advent Devotions – December 6 and December 13
This Advent, you are invited to engage in a time of group prayer and scripture study on the next two Mondays of the season. On December 6 and December 13 at 7 pm we will gather for prayer and reflection together on the Advent readings from the prophets. We will meet each week via Zoom using https://us06web.zoom.us/j/81012976653?pwd=Mi9aUldXQmhvYjVoUDlZOWxmMTQzU9
and on December 13 we will gather in person in the sanctuary. Consider making this your Advent devotion this year as a way of observing this season of preparation for Jesus' birth.
