Advent 2017 – Serving our Church Plants
The Advent season is when we expectantly look toward Christmas day to celebrate the coming of our Savior. This year we will kick it off with two opportunities to support our local church plants in Memphis.
Saturday, December 2nd, 8:30am to 12:45pm. Serve with Living Hope:Vollintine Evergreen. A unit has been obtained at nearby Lincoln Apartments to serve that community through Bible Studies, tutoring, job training, and other classes. Come help put the finishing touches on the ministry center by cleaning, painting, and completing other trim work.
Saturday, December 9th, 8:30am to 12:45pm. Serve with The Common in Orange Mound. This brand new church is meeting at Cherokee Elementary and seeks to be a blessing to that school. Come help transform their teacher’s lounge and library.
Lunch will be provided at these projects and will be followed by an informational prayer tour of each church plant’s neighborhood.
If you or some of your Small Group will be participating in either of these days, please email Greg Jackson (firstname.lastname@example.org) ASAP or by Sunday, November 26 at the latest. You will then receive more info, including address, things to bring, etc.
Advent 2017- Prayer Guides
Advent begins on December 3 this year, and there will be an Advent prayer guide to help us walk through this season together, as well as online Sunday family video devotionals. The prayer guides will be available beginning this morning.
Student Leader Training
Student leader training will be held on November 29 from 6:15-8pm at LH:Piperton.
Christmas Service Times
Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday this year, so we will not be having an evening service but will be having two Christmas Eve Services at our regular gathering times of 9 and 10:45am. There will be no Hope Park or child care; the service will be family friendly, and we will celebrate communion together. Make plans to join us at one of these services as we celebrate the birth of our Savior!
Do you love to sing? We are looking for people to join our worship leading choir, which will be helping to lead during our Advent season and beyond. Let us know if you are interested by sending an email to email@example.com.
