“THE END IS THE BEGINNING”
The idea of things becoming new is a theme we will be exploring this Advent by examining each word or short phrase of Revelation 21:5 where Jesus in his glorified form declares, “See, I am making all things new.” It is a dramatic depiction of Jesus restoring humanity and all of creation. Jesus doesn’t do away with humanity and start over; instead he gives humanity a new beginning, making us new again. In the sermon series, we will be exploring how Jesus’ restoration work is happening in our world and in our lives today against the backdrop of Advent when we remember Jesus coming and anticipate his coming again. We look forward to our journey together from Advent to Christmas. Come, worship with us!
There are children enrolled at Oak Grove-Bellemeade Elementary School who will receive few, if any, Christmas presents as a result of their parental financial situations. Please consider adopting these children by providing two relatively inexpensive gifts for each child 15 and under in a family. Typical gifts might be school supplies, games, books, or clothing. These unwrapped gifts need to be brought to the church on or before Sunday, December 8. If interested in this opportunity, please contact Dick Mateer (270-6932, firstname.lastname@example.org, or in person). The school also continues to need clothing for some of its students. Many of the Oak Grove-Bellemeade families live in Hillside Court, a city administered housing area. The school is looking for coats (sizes 5/6 – 14/16) for boys and girls, hats, gloves, scarves, socks, underwear, and undershirts. The clothing may be new or gently used. Please place donated items in the appropriate box labeled Oak Grove/Bellemeade clothing or in a grocery sack labeled with the school’s name in the Outreach Division area between the Narthex and Duntreath Hall.
Angel Tree Project: The Ministry of Prison Fellowship
“Angel Tree” project helps incarcerated men and women provide Christmas presents to their children. Tuckahoe will be sponsoring 25 children this year. Please consider helping with this very worthwhile project! We need 50 members of the congregation to purchase and gift wrap one gift each (approx. $20-$25). The gifts have been selected by the parents and the sizes checked with the custodial parent. Look for the Angel Tree in Duntreath Hall starting December 1. Please pick an Angel from the tree to make Christmas special for a lucky child! Questions? Please contact Pam Burch at 364-5203 or email@example.com.
