Hey friends I want to invite you to check out this year’s Advent Conspiracy. (What, you ask, is this “Advent Conspiracy”? This attempt to recapture Christmas, fight our own consumerism, and repurpose our gift-giving as a subversive act of worshipful generosity? So glad you asked: Click here.)
This year for Advent Conspiracy we are inviting you to purchase “One Day” – to cover one or more days’ worth of operational costs at the Melanie Centers – either for yourself or as gifts for others. For the price of a Christmas gift that may not have a very long shelf life you can literally change the course of a child’s life in Mozambique. To jump in, sign up on Sunday in the café.
In other Christmas related news:
• There is a women’s Casual Christmas Tea happening this Thursday, Dec 18th, 730pm at the Morey house. Please RSVP to email@example.com.
• We are looking forward to worshiping together on Christmas Eve, December 24th at 4pm. Kids will be with their families in the service, with activity notebooks to help them stay engaged, and a Christmas-themed activity room for children (with parental accompaniment) who are overcome by Christmas squirminess.
Finally, can I ask you to pray for this Sunday’s worship gathering? I sense God stirring something in us in regard to our engagement with the South Bay’s poor and hurting. Pray that we would have open, courageous hearts and follow God where he leads.
Lord bless you friends, and we’ll look forward to being with you this weekend –
