Sunday Announcements – December 13, 2015
The Final Advent(y) Fireside Chat. Join in the fun of this annual event. There will be one more opportunity this year on Thurs, Dec 17 at 7:30pm; come on out! Email email@example.com
Your chance to sing carols during advent is on Dec 20: Join us on Sunday, Dec 20 at Sunrise Assisted Living on Glebe immediately after the 5pm service for singing and chatting from 7-8pm. Red hats optional but appreciated!
Join us Christmas Eve @ 3 pm, 5 pm, or 10 pm as we celebrate the birth of Christ with a Eucharist service of lessons and carols. The 3 and the 5 are geared towards the attention span of a child, and the 10 pm will be more traditional and contemplative with a sung Eucharist (will include incense). Park anywhere in the whole parking garage. We’d love to have you.
Christmas Eve Volunteers! Whether you’re trained or not, this is a nice way to jump on the volunteer train and serve the guests who enter our space on Christmas Eve. Contact Kathy Kenyon, firstname.lastname@example.org. We still need greeters, readers, ushers, help with parking, Keynote, sound and more!
Giving gifts. At the Christmas Eve services we get to gather and give gifts to infants and children in our area – in much the same way that the wise men gave gifts to the Baby King. So, join us by donating a new, unwrapped item from the following list to be given to Doorways for Women and Children: $25 Target gift cards; toilet paper; paper towels; Pull-Ups (2T-5T).
Take note. There will be only one service on Dec 27 at 10am. Plan now to be there wearing your favorite Christmas sweater. There will be no Kids’ Small Groups on the 27th or at any of the services on Jan 3.
Baptism: Our next baptism will be on Sunday, January 10th. The required training will be on Tuesday, January 5th. If these dates work for you and you are interested in baptism for yourself or child, please contact Kathy Kenyon (email@example.com). More information and registration may be found on our website.
New-to-Restoration Dinner: Are you new (or new-ish) to Restoration? We’d love to meet you, tell you a little more about the church, and answer any questions you have—all while feeding you a great dinner. Join us on Tuesday, Jan 12, at 7:30 pm in the Fellowship Hall. To RSVP, go to restorationarlington.org/connect or on the app.
