Advent 2018 Emphasis: World Hunger
As we watch, wait and pray, let us be mindful of the world in need.
Advent brings the heart of faith: HOPE, TRANSFORMATION, JOY AND ACTION
Join in expectation and contemplation of a world of light and peace.
Pick up an Advent Calendar, and / or an Advent Study Booklet “The World is About to Turn” in the narthex. The materials center on the song of Mary–the Magnificat.
Select an adult or children’s coloring book to help you focus your thoughts on the comining of our God. Learn more about the ELCA work around the world and consider helping populate God’s Global Barnyard. (Donate money to provide chicks, piglets, cows, etc.). See the Good Gifts Catalog for more information!
Bring hats, scarves and gloves for the mitten tree for those in need in our neighborhood and / or support Care for Real as they serve our community. Prepare the way of the Lord!
