Dear College Avenue Family,
We really need to be together as a church this Sunday to make sure we’re ready for the peace and joy of Christmas. There’s a lot of pain in our world right now, and in our congregation. So let’s start our Sunday morning by worshiping God with songs of Advent hope and with prayers for God’s guidance. Then let’s gather for our December Council Meeting, which is open to all. The agenda will include a discussion of concerns about our budget and a discussion of some recent concerns for our Student Ministries and Student Ministries Director. This will be an opportunity to find clarity, reassurance, and reconciliation as we work together on the challenges ahead.
Then on Sunday evening, with relief and joy, let’s gather to go Christmas caroling, so that we can move beyond ourselves in carrying out the message of good will and peace to the world around us.
