A few weeks ago, we invited all of you to consider what it means to give through donating small household appliances to the T-mart elderlies that we regularly donate and deliver groceries to. A very big thanks to all of you for your generosity! We more than fulfilled the items requested and I just want to express my appreciation for your big hearts.
Our kids in the Children’s Ministry were also happy to be making Christmas cards for these elderlies, and I just wanted to share a picture of the cards they and their teachers made. Aren’t they pretty?
Christmas has always been about gathering together to celebrate the birth of Christ. For many of us, that is very connected to gift giving, singing Christmas carols, and eating together. As Christmas approaches, some of you may be wondering – how will we celebrate this year, and at the same time keep everyone safe?
We have come up with a plan to do just that. We are planning to have the service at 10.30am and all of you can join in from satellite locations in small groups where we can sing carols and enjoy fellowship over lunch together after the service.
So you can:
1. Join and watch the service from home, just like a Sunday service
2. Join one of the satellite locations with other folks (up to 5 people excluding the host) and celebrate Christmas together
3. Host a watch party with your friends (up to 5 friends) and celebrate Christmas together
4. Open up your home as one of the satellites to host some guests for Christmas
This would require quite a bit of planning. If you are interested to do 2 or 4, we need your help to sign up before 13th December at https://fcc.la/attendxmas2020 and we will get in touch with you with more information.
This Sunday, we continue on our Advent series: from liminality into the wilderness, what comes next?
May this Advent be a meaningful one for you as you reflect on the fullness of God’s love for us!
