Sermon:  Avoid The Christmas Rush!

Scripture Readings:
Jeremiah 33:14-16  NIV
Luke 21:25-36  NIV

As we begin this season of Advent and wait patiently for the birth of our Savior, let us take the time to experience who we are waiting for.
In the midst of our human day, let us set aside a moment when we fully immerse ourselves in the miraculous things that are about to take place.

Keep Sunday Holy
Our church, along with other local churches is a part of the Keep Sunday Holy Team.  We want to keep Sunday morning free of mandatory events like sporting practices or games.  That way, we can choose church, if we feel it has an importance in our family.  This effort was started as a result of a letter from a teenager about how her family has been torn up over the choice of church attendance versus other “mandatory” events outside of church.  So far we have started conversations via letters to the Editor.  We manned a tent for 2 days at the West End Fair to share our feelings.  We are also encouraging other churches to join in this effort.  We consider this to be a non-confrontational, ecumenical bridge building service to strengthen families in their spiritual growth.  We also have shirts available with our Keep Sunday Holy logo on them for only $10 - see Jeff if interested.

Crisis Meals - Deacon's are asking for meals to be prepared ahead of time and frozen in the church freezer.  Please label what the meal is and the date prepared.  This will expedite the process of getting meals to those in need.   Any questions, just call the church office.

Pleasant Valley Ecumenical Network  (PVEN) is always in need of non-perishable food items as they help many families in need in our community!  Also needed are Pleasant Valley School District approved clothing and warm weather clothing & blankets.  Please help us to keep our pantry well stocked by remembering those in need as you shop.  No donation is too small!  Donations can also be brought directly to PVEN at
279 Greenview Drive, (located at the corner of McIlhaney Road & Greenview Drive just behind the Chestnuthill Diner) on Tuesday & Friday mornings, 9:00-11:30 or left here at PVPC where we will make sure they are delivered to PVEN.  THANK YOU! 

If you are in need of assistance from PVEN, please call them at 570-992-3136.  You will need to have an appointment in order receive help & pick up goods, so please call ahead to gather information on qualifications.
