December 2, 2018

First Sunday of Advent

 

Highlights and Happenings

Advent Devotional Study - Beginning this week of December 2nd, member churches of the South-Sound Co-operative will be hosting Advent Bible studies to discuss the weekly reading of the book We Make the Road by Walking promoted by Bishop Stanovsky. Studies will be Mondays at 6:30pm at Starbucks (1301 Yelm Highway), Tuesdays at 1pm at First Olympia UMC, and Thursdays at 1pm here at St. Andrew’s. We have books available - your assistance in offsetting the cost ($14) is appreciated, but not necessary.

Blue Christmas - Blue Christmas: Dec. 17th at 6:30pm. Amongst all the caroling, Christmas shopping, and family gatherings, Christmas is often a joyous time of year – giving us little space to pause to contemplate any hardships. Blue Christmas is designed to give space to naming the challenges in life – whether a loss of a loved one, a loss of a job, family hardships, etc. – and bringing them to God. This will be a South-Sound Co-operative event hosted by St. Andrew’s.

Christmas Eve Service – This year’s candlelight service will begin at 7:00 pm on December 24th.

Senior SupperSaturday, December 15th at 12:00pm. We will have a dinner Caroling and cookie exchange. Please bring a dozen cookies.

 

Mission and Service Opportunities

St. Benedict’s Community Dinner – Saturday, December 15th @ 3:00 p.m. at St. Benedict’s Episcopal Church. We serve a hot meal for the homeless and low-income people in our community.

FORKids Weekend Meal Bags – Please take a red bag with you and purchase any of the items listed on the attached tag. These bags go to hungry kids at Olympic View Elementary for weekend meals.

Disaster Relief

How to give in response to disaster through our connection. When disaster hits, the United Methodist connection responds.
The United Methodist Church is uniquely situated to respond to disasters because of its churches in almost every county and community across the United States and the worldwide Methodist connection with annual conferences, central conferences, and autonomous partner churches on five continents.
As a disaster unfolds, the United Methodist Committee on Relief is in contact with annual conference leadership to offer assistance.
UMCOR is the not-for-profit humanitarian arm of The United Methodist Church and is part of the Board of Global Ministries. Since 1940, UMCOR's mission - providing relief in disaster areas, aiding refugees and confronting the challenges of global health and poverty - has helped heal the hurts of humanity in nearly 100 countries.
