Advent Talk Series
Starting Sunday, December 1
There is something more to this busy, wonderful, decorated holiday season that arrives each December. As followers of Jesus, we observe ‘Advent’ in order to enter the Story of the very first Christmas. The record of this in the book of Luke is perhaps the most familiar and often read. This Advent, we will look at this text and enter into the Anticipation, Provision, Peace, and Wonder found uniquely in Jesus Christ. As a church family, we are coming to the end of our year of Jubilee and will be celebrating that all the hope and promise of Jubilee is only found in the Messiah who came to us 2000 years ago, is alive with us now, and will return to reign as King.
Christmas Gifts 2019
Collecting on December Sundays
We believe the radical idea that was demonstrated on that first Christmas in Bethlehem 2,000 years ago: It is better to give than to receive.
This Christmas we want to live this truth by responding to Jesus with joy and generosity, making his love known to people in our city. Throughout December, you’re invited to bring gifts for our neighbors and place them in the designated areas in our lobby.
Socks and Children’s Books: Provide new socks and Children’s Books for neighbors who can use them.
Free Clothing Exchange – a free community event that connects neighbors and meet needs while offsetting everyday living expenses.
Diapers: Care for vulnerable children with this essential that is just out of reach for many people in our city.
Northwest Children’s Outreach – an all-volunteer group desiring to love those in need with the love of Christ: by providing for their most basic needs
Jeans: Bring the gift of new or gently used jeans for men, women and children.
Portland Rescue Mission – providing food, clothes, vital services and shelter for those in need.
Welcome Box: Pack a box of personal items that are essential and meaningful to comfort children entering Foster care.
Embrace Oregon – standing in the gap for vulnerable children and families in partnership with the Department of Human Services.
