Christmas Devotional

Ya’ll it’s going to be December in three days! I know we all say this but where did the year go? Good news is this time of year bring so much happiness and joy! The Christmas season is one of the busiest times of the year. But it is also a season of reflection and preparation for that special day when we mark Jesus’s coming—the arrival of our eternal God in our own frail humanity. Lets take some time each day to seek Jesus through prayer or devotional so we keep him at the center of our Christmas season.

This Friday, Elise Kilgore from Crossroads Church will be sharing a Christmas devotion with us. We are really excited to have her speak this week. We will also have a Christmas ornament craft! Please bring a picture or a few (or favorite graphic) to decorate it. The following picture will explain how to print out pictures so they properly fit on the ornament. (Or just make sure the picture will fit on a 2″ by 2″ block)image

 

Breakfast will be provided by table 4&5.  This week will be our last collection for the year. Food donations this week will benefit St. Vincent de Paul ministry of St. Mary Magdalene Church. Some of the needed food/non food items: jelly, peanut butter, soup, non-refrigerated milk, canned spaghetti (i.e. ravioli, spaghetti-os), toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, shampoo, clothes detergent. Most of these items can be purchased at Dollar Tree.

This Friday is the deadline to sign up for the online momtrepreneur expo—see Katie Morgan to be included!

Next meeting on 12/15 will be our Christmas paint party with Bubbles and Brushes.  RSVP is required this year so be sure to sign up at your table this week!! This meeting is always a favorite and you won’t want to miss it.
