Happy Thanksgiving!

The Sunday after Thanksgiving, November 27, is the first Sunday of Advent.  Advent is the church season of getting ready for Christmas.

Many families look for ways to tangibly give to others during the holidays. At First Pres, we have opportunities every Sunday during Advent in our Alternative Christmas Market to look for gifts for those who are in need.  And if you’re looking for hands on opportunities, sign up to fill Christmas baskets.

Sign ups are in the library on Sunday and in the Commons during the week.

We will be collecting non-perishable food items during the weeks leading up to Christmas. Have your kids bring a canned good or box of cereal to put in the grocery cart on Sunday morning.

For more ideas for Advent activities check out this weeks issue of Faith Notes.

Also this month’s Heartfelt Newsletter talks about “Including Special Needs Children in the Church” (http://www.thelogosministry.org/heartfelt.html)

REMINDER: 

MIDDLE SCHOOL PARENTS: OUR GROUP WILL BEGIN MEETING AT FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 7!

HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS: BE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR SIGN UPS FOR OUR SUMMER TRIP TO WASHINGTON, DC (JULY 5-13, 2012)

Have a blessed holiday,
