Advent Begins Sunday, December 1. This year, we are using the UCC’s National Campaign of “THREE GREAT LOVES” and then added one VERY important fourth Love. Each Sunday has a special theme to it, and all Sundays of Advent will have candles to be lit, carols to be sung, and an inspiring message of how we can live into and live out our Great Love of Children, Creation, Neighbor and God. Make plans to join us in worship or in any one of the many activities this season has to offer.
The first meeting is Tuesday, October 1, at 10:00 AM in Lander Hall. There will be two meetings each month on the first & third Tuesdays from 10 AM to Noon. All are welcome, experienced and novice; being led by Estelle Trzcinski, an experienced quilter. Sewing machines and materials will be provided and all quilts will be donated to charity. Questions? Contact Estelle 619-431-5081 and email@example.com.
Are we performing music you want to hear? Do you miss hearing or singing a particular hymn or song? Let us know and send in your requests to Kay-Marie Moreno (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we’ll see where we can plug them into the services. We are always looking for ideas and welcome yours.
Our next meeting is Tuesday, December 3, 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM, in the downstairs Conference Room. We will discuss Chapters 4 through 6 of our latest book selection, “Inspired” by Rachel Held Evans. It can be purchased on Amazon if you’d like to join the group.

If you are able to smile, shake hands and say hello, you are the perfect candidate to be a Sunday morning greeter for the 10:00 service. Duties include coming about 20 minutes early, greeting everyone, and telling visitors that there are Visitor Information Cards in the pews. If someone needs other information, such as where child care is, the greeter can tell them, or ask an usher to help them. That’s all there is to it. So if you would like to do this, please sign up on the sheet in Lander Hall.
Serve as a liturgist. Bring refreshments or prepare communion. Wash linens or press play to launch multimedia. Want to sing or play an instrument in worship, even if you can’t commit to the Chancel Choir?
