ADVENT CHRISTMAS 2022!
The blessing season of advent is approaching!
We have the wonderful opportunity to come together, worship, and celebrate the remarkable Christmas story. As a PCWS family of all ages, we will use many of our beloved traditions and usher in new ways to experience the promise that is at the heart of the story, and one that is meant to be lived out and passed on from generation to generation.
The genuine words of Mary, from the gospel of Luke, will guide our worship and a very special calendar of events. Our Advent Planning Team and Worship Team have thoughtfully created many opportunities for our youth and adults to experience the story, connect our stories, and be fulfilled individually, as well as a body of beautiful believers.
Surely, from now on all generations will call me blessed;
for the Mighty One has done great things for me,
and holy is his name.
His mercy is for those who fear him
from generation to generation.
~ Luke 1:48b-50
Let us ALL welcome advent with starry-eyed wonder, joyful anticipation, and with open hearts ready to gather, feel and share the love of God’s special promise.
Join us to decorate (Deck the Halls, Ya’ll) our beautiful grounds, sanctuary and prepare for the big tree lighting on 12/3!
We also need some crafty helpers for our Adventfull Craft Hour on 12/11!

Let’s Fill the Can!
We all know that during cold weather more expense needs to go to warming a house or apartment and other cold-related expenses. This means that the need for food donations increases. As you do your regular shopping this week, would you consider picking up some items for the food bank at our ministry partner Second Baptist Church of La Grange? You can bring the nonperishable items by the church any time. A large garbage can with a hand-lettered sign encouraging each other, friends, family, and neighbors to “Fill The Can!”
The Mission committee is looking forward to welcoming our friends from the 2nd Baptist Food Pantry to worship on Sunday, November 20! As long-time partners in this local hunger ministry, we are so pleased that they’ve offered to join us for a brief sharing of blessings in honor of and in celebration of this partnership. As part of this celebration, and in advance of Thanksgiving, we would love to be able to share a generous “serving” of tubs with them that day, which we’ll deliver on our weekly run the next day. Please consider a special donation this week via our 2nd Baptist outdoor can in the porte-cochere, or bring your non-perishable food inside to one of the tubs outside the Graham Charter Room.
Pantry needs at this time are…
- Cream of mushroom soup
- Cream of chicken soup
- Canned diced tomatoes
- Hot cereal such as Oatmeal, Cream of Wheat, etc.
No green beans at this time. Thank you!!
