Christmas Poinsettias

Christina has kindly offered to order poinsettias again for our church.  They will be $8.79 each. Please provide your name, number of plants, color choice (it’s possible they’ll all end up being red), and if you plan to take them home on Christmas Eve. Deadline for getting this information to her is Sunday, December 5.

Fellowship Note from the Deacons

Out of an abundance of caution, due to the recent surge of COVID cases in Addison county and the increased potential of the virus spreading in the coming weeks after gathering with family and friends for Thanksgiving, the deacons have decided to put coffee hour on hold for the next several weeks. We will not have coffee hour through December 12. The deacons will meet on the 12th and reassess this decision going forward. This information has been reflected in the calendar below as well. Thanks for your understanding as we continue to navigate these challenging COVID waters!

A Surprising God

This Sunday we begin Advent, a time of preparation for the reminder, once again, that God is always doing new things among us. On Sunday you will be able to pick up your copy of A Surprising God, the Advent devotional that the Deacons and I invite you to read along with us. On the next four Thursday evenings (Dec 2, 9, 16, 23) from 5.30-6 I will be leading a Zoom time for checking in with one another and discussing themes and questions from that week’s devotions so far. If you would like the Zoom info, email me weybridgechurch@gmail.comAlso reach out if you are not able to be at worship this Sunday and would like to work out a way to get your devotional this week.

Peace,

Pastor Caryne
