Happy Advent! We welcome you to engage with us this season in preparing for and celebrating the coming of Christ!
Please join us for a Banner Making WorkshopTHIS EVENING, Thursday, 6:00–7:30pm in the Hope Room with Jill Moles (Sunday's bulletin had the incorrect time). Everyone is welcome—drop by for any amount of time!
This Saturday, December 8th, from 10:00–11:30am the Nurture Committee is hosting an Advent Celebrationat the church for Youth and Children. We will have activities for each age group, cookie decorating, singing, stories and a movie! As we share in the great anticipation of Christmas, parents and guardians can take a few moments to spend a morning doing something special while we share God's time with the children and youth.
The Session and Personnel Committee are looking for at least 2–3 people to attend the Healthy Congregations/Healthy Pastors Mini-Conference through the PCUSA Board of Pensions on Monday, December 10th, at Hampton Congregational Church (263 Main Street, Hampton CT) at noon. Carpool from PPC will leave at 10:30am and return by 4pm. Lunch and registration are at no cost. Please contact Pastor Shavon if you are able attend.
There will be a Christmas Eve Candlelight Worship Service at 6pm on Christmas Eve. Please come at 5:30 for set-up if you would like a costume to participate in the walk-on Nativity. We look forward to a joyful celebration of our Savior's birth in community together!
If you are interested in singing or playing an instrument in an Advent Jazz and/or Gospel Ensemble, please contact Kirk Louis at email@example.com.
And finally, a big Thank You to all who participated in the church clean-up day last Saturday! Along with good food and social time together, we completed a number of tasks: polished wood surfaces, sanded plaster, cleaned Sunday School rooms, installed the new church sign, raked leaves, and put things into storage. If you have a suggestion for something that needs work, please be in touch with Lee VanderBaan, chair of the Building & Grounds Committee. He is especially interested in ideas for improving the exterior space and making it a welcoming place for people of all ages.
