We continue our standard worship schedule, with Christian Education at 9 am most Sundays and Worship at 10:30 am every Sunday. We continue to live stream to YouTube- subscribe to our YouTube Channel! Check the Monthly Newsletter and the bulletin for dates and times. Junior Church for children follows the Children’s Message in the worship service each Sunday; if parents prefer, children can then depart to the classroom near the Gathering Space, and parents pick them up there after Worship.
This Sunday we celebrate Christ the King Sunday. The festival of Christ the King (or Reign of Christ) ends our marking of Ordinary Time after the Day of Pentecost, and moves us to the threshold of Advent, the season of hope for Christ’s coming again at the end of time. The day centers on the crucified and risen Christ, whom God exalted to rule over the whole universe.
This Sunday youth meet with Sarah Henderson and Dale May in the Youth room at 11:45 am. Please join them for warm beverages and donuts! Purl & Pray also meets at 11:45 in the library and online. Sunday Christian Education resumes on the 3rd of December at 9:00 am in the library. Pick up a book during coffee hour titled “Stay Awhile, Advent Lessons in Divine Hospitality” by Kara Eidson. Leila Evans will lead our discussion.
Chrismon Ornaments: During Social Hour on the 26th each family is invited to make a Chrismon ornament or to hang on our tree in December. There are enough supplies for you to make one to take home and one to leave here. Craft tables are set up in the Jr Church room and Amanda Toone will be there to guide you in ornament making.
Tis the Season - Annual YMCA Snowman Mission. All the snowmen have been claimed! Volunteers need to purchase the gift requested on the tag, attach the snowman tag to the unwrapped gift, and place the gift it on the mission table in the Lower Narthex by Sunday, November 26.
We decorate for Advent and Christmas on Sunday, November 26 following our Worship service. Please contact Jennifer Flynn or Sue Ciolorito if you plan to help with the decorations. Lunch will be provided. Join us as we prepare our spirits (and building!) for the holidays!
Darnestown Presbyterian's Holiday Giving Program provided meals to about 50 families in Montgomery County for Thanksgiving, administered through Germantown HELP. Our focus now shifts to Christmas. Our allocation of 50 families includes some very large families—at least eight larger than six people—so we could really use some more help! As always, Rob Garretson is coordinating the program, so please refer any questions to him.
