An update from Pastor Paul

By Pastor Paul Stumme-diers

Bethany will be publishing a newsletter this final week in November, but we wanted to inform the Bethany community of some time-sensitive announcements in advance of that.

- Christmas gift-giving with our partners: The Bethany Council invites you to consider these partners when planning your gift giving. Please note the method and dates preferred by these agencies so as to meet distribution schedules;

        Martha & Mary (marthaandmary.org) by Dec. 1
        Helpline House ($25 gift cards, or cash for gift cards that will be purchased by Bethany.)
Seniors: Ace, Safeway, Rite-Aid, Amazon
              Kids: Eagle Harbor Book Co., Calico Cat

- Advent activities: Yes, Advent, which begins next Sunday, Nov. 29.
              Bethany Advent wreath … let’s just say you don’t want to miss our drive-in worship services the next four weeks.
              Advent logs: Kathy Dudgeon has created Advent log kits (logs, candles, attached greenery) that can be picked up after worship under the bell tower. Thank you, Kathy.
             Advent devotions: Join Pastor Paul in receiving email reflections each day from Fr. Richard Rohr at cac.org/email-sign-up/sign-up/
             Mid-week Advent candlelight vigil: Each Wednesday in Advent (Dec. 2, 9, 16) at 5:30 p.m. over 100 luminaries will be lit around the Bethany grounds to enhance reflections and walking. They will mark the labyrinth and a path from the church, down through the orchard, and back up to the public trail along Sportsman’s Club Road back to the church.

- Bethany’s Stewardship Campaign: This will begin at the end of the month. Information to follow.

- Christmas Eve Worship Services on Thursday, Dec. 24, are at this time being planned as drive-in worship services. Stay tuned for the times.
