For the upcoming season of Advent/Christmas, the Discipleship Council is seeking individuals who would be willing to write a brief reflection to be included in an Advent/Christmas Devotional booklet. This booklet will be made available in both print and online versions.
We trust this will be a special way for us as a church family to learn more about each other, and we know this would be of great benefit as together with awestruck wonder, we anticipate the arrival of the Christ-child.
This invitation is open to all ages in the church. For those interested in sharing a devotion, consider the following prompts to find your starting point. You may mail or drop off your completed devotions to the church office C/O Wendy Jones, or email Wendy directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline for submissions will be November 1, 2021.
