Advent Calendar… join the community

advent-candles

We are looking forward to walking this journey toward Christmas with you!  Here are some ways you can join the Restoration community during this season.

Morning Prayer – Join Morgan Reed in the sanctuary for morning prayer on Tuesdays (Dec 5, 12, 19) from 7am – 7:30 with the option of confession from 7:30 – 8.

Adventy Fireside Chats – Join Erica and friends at her house on Thursdays (Dec 7, 14, 21) at 7:30pm to carve out some quiet space to exercise the discipline of waiting.  Gather fireside for a guided reflection and time of prayer each week.  RSVP chapman.erica@gmail.com

Advent Community Prep Friends and families, join us on Saturdays from 9:30am to 12:00pm at Restoration for cider, carols, sanctuary decorating, and a unique community event.

– Dec 2  Join Rachel Hoppe as she leads us in making Advent Wreaths.  We have materials for about 25 wreaths, so come on out!  Bring $5 for supplies (a crazy bargain) to help your family/household mark the progression toward Christmas.  Sign up for Advent Wreath Making here.

– Dec 9  Decorate cookies together for your neighbors.  RSVP to matt@restorationarlington.org if you would like to help bake the cookies beforehand or if you would just like to arrive with friends and/or kids to decorate them!  Delivering cookies to your neighbors can be a really simple way to invite them to Restoration’s Christmas Eve service where they can hear about the lengths that God has gone to show his love for them.

– Dec 16  Help sort the Glebe Star Tree presents or help with some last minute shopping.  See more details below.

– Dec 23  We are decorating the building for Christmas Eve.  Greens galore!!!

We would like at least 7 people to commit to helping prepare the sanctuary each of these Saturdays from 9:30 to Noon.  If one of your older family members doesn’t want to do the activity, have them come to the sanctuary to help, and join us when you’re done with the activity!  Sign up here if your planning to come.  But know that there is no limit to the number of helpers.

Caroling at Sunrise Senior Living – Bring a Santa hat and your vocal chords to belt out some Christmas Carols  on Sunday, Dec 17 right after the 5pm service (about 7pm) at Sunrise Senior Living, 2000 N Glebe Rd, Arlington, VA 22207.

Glebe Star Tree –  Help us as we adopt over 50 families this Christmas and purchase gifts for children in our neighborhood elementary school. The Glebe Star Trees, with tags indicating the gifts needed, are in the narthex. Opportunities to sort and serve are also coming Dec 16-17.  Watch the video below to learn a little bit more.

Christmas Eve Sunday – Because Christmas Eve lands on the fourth Sunday of Advent, there will be a simple morning prayer at 8am led by Morgan Reed to celebrate the last Sunday of Advent.

Lessons and Carols – Celebrate a Christmas Eve Eucharist with us at 3pm and 5pm for children or the young at heart.  There is also a more traditional service at 9pm that will include a sung Eucharist and incense. 

For the 3 and 5 services, we invite the kids (or adults who really, really want to) to come dressed as characters from the nativity story.  We are also looking for three boys/men and three girls/women to help with a reader’s theater of the Gospel story.  Contact matt@restorationarlington.org if you are interested.

New Year’s Eve Sunday – There will be one worship service at 10am.

We are excited for the ways that you will join the Restoration Community this Advent on our journey to Christmas.  Invite friends to any and all of it!
