The Altar Guild will set up for wreath making on the first Sunday of Advent from 9:30-10:30 a.m. in the cloister and courtyard. The supplies provided include two different styles of wire wreaths, blue and purple advent candle sets, ribbon, bows and greenery. A donation of $10 is suggested to cover the Altar Guild’s cost of supplies. All ages are invited to join in this communal craft activity to start the Advent season in your homes. If you have a purchased wreath that you would like to decorate, please bring it and join the fun. Altar Guild will also have cookies and hot cider to add to the festive spirit.
“Who Do People Say That I Am?” – Jesus of Nazareth
For many people their Jesus turns out to be a smorgasbord of many of their favorite things: a little Bible, a little tradition, a little hymnody, a little Hollywood, and a little Americana. In this study we are going to strip away a few of the unhealthy layers and ask a fundamental question that is at the heart of the gospel: “Who do you say that I am?” In the end what we will (re)discover is this: Jesus was a deeply polarizing figure in his day. People either loved him and wanted to fall at his feet or they hated him and would stop at nothing to silence him.
December 6: Who does Mark say that I am?
December 13: Who does Matthew say that I am?
December 20: Who do Muslims say that I am?

Please pack boxes for men (there are very few women on the vessels). Please bring your filled shoebox to church by Sunday, December 6.
