ADVENT (arrival, entry into)  Each Advent, Friends are invited briefly to tell the congregation their personal story of Christ’s arrival into their life, and to hang an ornament on the parlor Christmas tree that reminds everyone of what they said.  If you’d like to tell or update your personal advent story during worship on December 15 or 22, please contact the church office.
 
PEACE IS POSSIBLE SUNDAY:  The Parsonage Class welcomes all Friends on this second Sunday of the month to join them in expressing devotion to Christ, the Prince of Peace, by advocating for peace and nonviolence.  Pick up an information sheet from the southwest parlor table.
