Join us for Worship! Advent 2 + Communion Sunday

Greetings friends!
Tomorrow is the second Sunday in Advent. It’s also Communion Sunday and, at the 9:30 service, we will receive some new members!

Here are the worship times and bulletins for each of our services:

To join us for worship online…
Our 9:30am and 11:00am services will be livestreamed as usual tomorrow morning. Join us about 10 minutes before when we will “go live.” Here’s the link: Online Worship
Don’t forget to have your communion elements ready!
A note about tomorrow’s worship services…
Pastor Jody baked homemade bread for tomorrow’s communion service! Yes, it’s the recipe she mentioned in last week’s sermon! The congregation will come forward to receive the elements from Pastor Jody, who will serve you using COVID-safe protocols. Those who prefer to receive communion using the pre-packaged elements, we will also make those available.
Don’t forget to check our announcements on page 2 of bulletins…
In addition to the information about our Christmas Mission projects, here’s a video from Jose’s Closet offering us a glimpse of their new digs in Mesa: Jose’s Closet Video
As one of our Mission Partners, we are collecting gift cards for their clients. To participate in this project, grab an ornament off the Giving Tree in the Sanctuary, get a gift card from the vendor in the amount listed on the ornament, then bring both back to church by next Sunday, December 12.

We are also collecting contributions toward our Adopt-A-House ministry at House of Refuge. See the announcement on page 2 of the bulletins.

Don’t forget: It’s not too late to contribute to Transforming our SoL!
